In July 2023, all five seasons of Issa Rae’s HBO comedy series Insecure started streaming on Netflix, and new fans were able to experience every hilariously awkward moment. The series is still so beloved that some viewers are wondering if there will be an Insecure season 6.
Issa Rae, who also co-created the series and wrote many episodes, stars in the HBO comedy as Issa Dee, a non-profit employee with a rapper alter ego in her mirror and a long-term relationship she’s questioning. In the first season, Issa’s breakup kick starts a whole lot of change.
Insecure also stars Yvonne Orji as Issa’s lawyer best friend Molly and Jay Ellis as Issa’s (ex-)boyfriend Lawrence. The ensemble throughout the years includes Natasha Rothwell, Amanda Seales, Lisa Joyce, Y’lan Noel, Alexander Hodge, Kendrick Sampson, Leonard Robinson, and Courtney Taylor.
There are more HBO shows on the way to Netflix, but is Insecure season 6 on the way at all? For those curious about the future of the comedy series, here’s what to know about where Insecure stands today and its potential of coming back for another season.
Will there be an Insecure season 6?
No, Insecure season 6 is not happening. The fifth season was ordered by HBO in May 2020, and January 2021, the network announced that it would be the final season of the series. Barring any future reunions or revivals, five seasons of 44 episodes is the complete series of Insecure.
As of July 11, Insecure has made its way into the Netflix daily top 10 most popular series as old fans rewatch and new fans discover the series. Even with this success almost two years after its series finale, Insecure won’t come back for season 6. This is merely a well-deserved victory lap.
Issa Rae currently stars in the summer blockbusters Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse and Barbie. She also created and executive produces the HBO comedy series Rap Sh!t, which returns for its second season in August 2023. Maybe someday, Issa Dee could make a comeback. If not, the series ended perfectly.
