Unsafe Season 5: Issa Rae’s HBO comedy ends in 2021

How will ‘Insecure’ wrap up the Issa Dee story?


The very incredible HBO series Unsure ends with season 5. Based on the web series “Awkward Black Girl” by Co-Creator, Executive Producer and Star Issa Rae, Insecure has been on the air since 2016. The following series primarily follows Millennial Issa Dee (Rae), who navigates Los Angeles through personal and professional ups and downs. Unsure also revolves around Issa’s friends – Molly (Yvonne Orji), Tiffany (Amanda Seales) and Kelli (Natasha Rothwell) – as well as Issa’s romantic relationships.

On Wednesday, HBO announced that Insecure would end with Season 5. Amy Gravitt, Executive vice president of programming at HBO, posted the following statement at the end of Insecure: “Issa has made uncertainty an iconic form of comedy. The show is as succinct as it is from the heart, and because of the deeply personal work that Issa, Prentice [Penny], Melina [Matsoukas], the cast and the writers put in. This talented team designed a brilliant last season for Insecure and we look forward to sharing many more stories with this unique group of people. ”

HBO’s announcement of the end of Insecure also indicated that season 5 production is slated to begin later in January. Season 5 will also premiere later this year. It’s unclear exactly when Season 5 will premiere, and it’s hard to guess as previous seasons of the show premiered in the spring, summer, and fall. What will be most important to the fans is what the show has in store for Issa. Season 4, which ended in June 2020, focused on a seriously rocky spot in Issa and Molly’s friendship and Issa’s re-kindled romance with her ex LawrenceJay Ellis). Questions about Issa’s future with Lawrence, Molly, and even her career are at stake as fans prepare to bid farewell to this award-winning HBO series.

Unsafe seasons 1 through 4 can now be streamed on HBO Max. Season 5 is expected later this year. For more information, please visit HBO this month.
