Insecure characters Issa, Molly, and company will be saying farewell after the show’s upcoming fifth season.

HBO announced Wednesday that the show would be officially coming to an end after season five.

“Issa has turned insecurity into an iconic form of comedy,” HBO Programming executive VP Amy Gravitt said in a statement. “The show is as incisive as it is heartfelt, and it has resonated strongly with its audience. This talented team has conceived a brilliant final season for Insecure and we look forward to having many more stories to tell with this singular group of collaborators.”

Following the announcement, creator and star Issa Rae posted on Twitter: “Very excited to film our fifth and final season! We couldn’t have told a complete story without the tremendous support of our audience and the faith of @HBO. See y’all soon! #InsecureHBO.”

Co-star Yvonne Orji also tweeted about the show’s final season, adding: “We going out with a bang y’all… thanks for rocking with us!!”

Insecure was inspired by Rae’s acclaimed web series Awkward Black Girl and last year was nominated for three Primetime Emmys, including Outstanding Comedy Series, Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series for Rae’s performance as Issa, and Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for Orji’s performance as Molly.

The series was co-created by writer and comedian Larry Wilmore (The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore).

In a publicity trailer released by HBO Max last month, the streaming service confirmed the fifth season of the series would be arriving at some point this year. No official premiere date has been announced.
