The Cast of Insecure Just Wrapped Their Last Day of Filming, and We're Hella Emotional
Say it ain't so! Insecure is coming to an end after its upcoming fifth season, and we're low-key sad. On Friday, the cast and crew bid their farewells on social media as they finished filming the series finale. "Today is my last day shooting #InsecureHBO," Issa Rae tweeted. "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."
"This was a family that I was privileged to grow with, learn from, and do life with."
Meanwhile, Jay Ellis and Yvonne Orji took a walk down memory lane and shared photos of some of their favorite moments with Rae and the rest of the cast and crew, including showrunner Prentice Penny. "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," Orji wrote on Instagram. "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. WHAT. A. MUTHA. EFFIN. BLESSING."
The fifth season of Insecure is set to debut later this year, and according to Rae, it will be all about "grounding and rooting oneself." "What I definitely didn't want to do is highlight the pandemic, but I think we're successfully staying away from that because we're living through the pandemic now, and the last thing I want to do is make or watch a TV show that deals with that," Rae previously told POPSUGAR. "I think we've done a good job of paralleling it in a way where it's not about that, but it also just relates to where we are generationally and some of the subjects and things that most concern us right now." As for whether she'd ever consider a spinoff, Rae recently told Entertainment Tonight, "There's a chance for everything."
