It looks like the fifth and final season of the HBO scripted series “Insecure,” will soon make its premiere now that the show’s two leading stars have shot their final scenes for the show.
Both Issa Rae and Yvonne Orji took to social media to share that they have finished filming for the show for the very last time, and it was definitely an emotional moment that brought on the tears.
Yvonne finished her final scene first, and she shared a video of the emotional speech she gave to the cast and crew on set. She and said, “Last night we said goodbye and God Bless to, not only Molly, but also to our fearless leader, @the_a_prentice. We cried a river, group-hugged, ate cake & popped multiple bottles. 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.”
The following day Issa wrapped up her final scene for the series and said, “WRAPPED a show I’ve been writing for 8 years and shooting for 6, surrounded by a chosen family of incredible creatives. One day I’ll be able to properly articulate what each and every person involved in the making of this show has meant to me and how they’ve changed me for the better.”
As previously reported, Issa confirmed that the fifth season would be the show’s final season at the top of the year. At the time she said, “Prentice [Penny] and I are so grateful that HBO believed in our show from the beginning and kept faith in us to see our vision through the end. We always planned to tell this story through five seasons, but we couldn’t have made it this far without the tremendous support of our audience. I feel blessed beyond measure to bring our characters’ stories to an end, on-screen at least.”
