American award winning actress and producer, Issa Rae, has finally bid farewell to the HBO series “Insecure”. She made this known yesterday via her twitter account.
“Today is my last day shooting #InsecureHBO. 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.”
Earlier this year, Rae announced the filming of the fifth and final season of the show. This had many fans very stunned and heartbroken.
Although the decision seemed sudden, it was well thought out according to Rae’s interview with People. “I’ve been wrapping my head around this since season 3.” she said.
The 36-year-old added, “But I’m so grateful to be able to play this character, who is obviously a version of me, and in the same way that I want this character to grow, I want to be able to grow too.”
Rae recently won the award for “Outstanding Actress in a Comedy Series” for Insecure at the NAACP Image Awards in March 2021.
The final season is set to be released later this year as confirmed by HBO. However, there’s no date confirmed just yet.
