The final scene has been shot and the cast has exited the set of HBO’s Insecure.

On Friday, the cast and crew said goodbye to fans on social media as the dramedy wrapped production on its upcoming fifth and final season. Series star and creator Issa Rae got sentimental in a tweet about her journey on the critically acclaimed show.

“Today is my last day shooting #InsecureHBO,” Rae captioned four pictures from the set. “Said goodbye to some of my favorite people on Earth, on and off screen, this past week. Never imagined all the doors this would open. Forever grateful to those who paved the way for us to do us.”

Insecure was inspired by Rae’s acclaimed web series “Awkward Black Girl.” The HBO series follows four Black women in Los Angeles as they navigate love, life and their careers.

As previously reported, HBO announced in January that the show would end after its upcoming fifth season.

Yvonne Orji, who co-stars as Molly on the show, shared a gallery of pictures and videos from the set on her Instagram feed this weekend and described the emotional final moments on set.

“We cried a river, group-hugged, ate cake & popped multiple bottles,” she shared. “I’m gon’ miss the heck outta these beautiful people. This wasn’t just a show with some co-stars that I had to work with. This was a family that I was privileged to grow with, learn from, and do life with. As we each move on to other projects, we know that we’ll always have this moment, this experience, these last 6 years. What a blessing.”

Jay Ellis, who plays Lawrence and has also served as a director on the show, captioned his Instagram post, “Five Seasons. Four the culture. Three da hard way. Two best friends. One legend.”

Showrunner Prentice Penny also took to social media to describe his last day on set.

“Wrapped. Forever. #InsecureHBO ,” he tweeted. “Been a life changing six years. I feel blessed to inspire Black culture in the same way black tv inspired me when I was a kid. So to even be remotely in that ballpark I’m thankful. See you guys for the #FabAndFinal #InsecureHBO.”

Season 5 of Insecure will be released later  this year.
