Issa Rae’s Insecure has become the first HBO original seried available on Netflix under a new licensing deal with Warner Bros. Discovery.

The streaming service shared news of the show’s arrival Monday morning on Twitter.

“All five seasons of Issa Rae’s Peabody and NAACP award winning series Insecure are now on Netflix!” the streamer tweeted.

Fans of the hit dramedy celebrated the news by retweeting the post more than 6,000 times and adding hundreds of comments.

“This show gonna have a whole new life!” one viewer replied.

“Whuuuuuuttt????? Yessss baby!!!” another person responded.

“I guess I know what I’m rewatching for the 100th time,” someone else shared.

“Definitely rewatching/binging,” another person tweeted.

Insecure premiered in 2016 and wrapped production in December 2021.

As previously reported, the new licensing agreement with rival Netflix is said to be driven by financial considerations, as Warner Bros. Discovery faces significant debt following the merger between the former WarnerMedia and Discovery, Inc.

The agreement is non-exclusive, allowing the show to continue streaming on Warner Bros. Discovery’s own platform, Max.

Other HBO titles including Band of Brothers, The Pacific, Six Feet Under, and Ballers are expected to begin streaming on Netflix in the near future.

The licensing agreement marks a major shift for Warner Bros. Discovery.

The company has traditionally limited the licensing of shows to its own corporate umbrella, such as when it recently ran episodes of Insecure on OWN (which is owned by Warner Bros. Discovery), marking a rare opportunity for the series to air on basic cable.
