The Insecure Cast Say Goodbye After 5 Seasons, and We Need Tissues!
Insecure has come to an end after giving us five glorious seasons. We're still shedding tears after the finale on Dec. 26. Issa Dee (Issa Rae), Molly (Yvonne Orji), and Kelli (Natasha Rothwell) all get their happy endings, and, well, Tiffany (Amanda Seales) is still figuring it out — but that's life. Cast members who have been on the show for all five seasons and some with newer roles have been sharing their goodbyes. Be prepared to cry a little harder.
Rae posted a photo with Orji and Jay Ellis (Lawrence) from the finale and voiced her love to fans and thanked them for sticking with her for all five seasons. Orji shared a lengthy tribute to the cast, writing, "There's no saying goodbye to what we've shared for the last 6 years. The joy, the love, the support, the camaraderie, the glow-up— it's all so palpable." She also voiced how "proud" she is of her character, Molly.
See how the cast bid farewell to the HBO series ahead.

"For FIVE seasons, @the_a_prentice told me, 'when Molly finds happiness, the show is over.' Well, he kept his word. @issarae, Molly might have married Taurean, but you will always be her one true love," Orji wrote on Instagram alongside photos from the finale. "There's no saying goodbye to what we've shared for the last 6 years. The joy, the love, the support, the camaraderie, the glow-up— it's all so palpable. What an HONOR it has been to work with every cast member, crew member, writer, producer & @hbo exec that made our show a success."
She continued, "Molly Guuurrl. I'm proud of you. To embody your essence has been life-changing and career-defining. @mlawson314 thank you for existing." Orji also joked that "it's time for life to imitate art," in reference to Molly getting married in the finale.

"I was a huge fan of Insecure and of Issa's long before I ever auditioned for the show. I loved that it was an honest portrayal of women just like me and my friends in my own neighborhood of South LA. Joining the cast was more than a dream come true, it was a reminder of how specifically God answers our prayers sometimes. I had prayed to work on a show about and for black women similar to Insecure. God said I'll do you one better," Elmore wrote on Instagram. "I've already said goodbye to the show as an actor, but tonight I join everyone else in saying goodbye as a true fan."
She added, "Thank you @issarae @the_a_prentice @msmelina and all of the amazing writers, directors, EPs, cast and crew for a spectacular ride. I'm forever grateful."
