    It's A Series Wrap On "Insecure," As Well As My Happiness

    Just look at these photos of Issa Rae and Yvonne Orji ๐Ÿ˜ญ.

    After five seasons, the cast of Insecure is bidding adieu, and I am simply unprepared.

    Other words for how I'm feeling include "distraught," "inconsolable," and "never-the-same."

    The series โ€” which is about a young Black woman in Los Angeles and her trials and triumphs โ€” is hailed for its impact and groundbreaking representation.

    Issa Rae changed the world and the culture with #InsecureHBO. No show of itโ€™s time was fully intertwined with the black pop culture zeitgeist like this was - and we all saw some of ourselves and our friends in the characters. Def gonna be talking about it for years to come!

    Although no release date has been announced, the series' final season is expected to air later this year.

    "Said goodbye to some of my favorite people on Earth, on and offscreen, this past week," Issa Rae, the show's star, creator, and executive producer, wrote on Twitter.

    Today is my last day shooting #InsecureHBO. ๐Ÿฅฒ 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.

    Rae said she "never imagined" the doors the series would open and is "forever grateful" to those who paved the way for her and her team.

    But what's a goodbye without Insecure-branded matching sweats?

    Co-stars Yvonne Orji, Jay Ellis, and Rae look adorable, even if the fits somewhat resemble what I imagine is the required uniform for a "millennial Christian cult."

    Ellis, who plays Issa's on-again, off-again beau Lawrence, made us feel so many things with the behind-the-scenes shots he shared on his Instagram.

    How can you not get emotional while watching this video of Orji's last day?

    "Issa, I owe so much to you โ€” we all do. I'm so grateful that I got to rock with you by your side as your No. 2 for six years. You changed the heck out of my life, and like a Drake album, nothing will ever be the same," Orji said.

    Fine, I'll sob.

    Popping all of the bottles and crying all of the tears!

    Melina Matsoukas, the show's director, posted a series of behind-the-scenes photos on her Instagram story, charting Insecure from its origins to now.

    She shared that she is #TeamLawrence, which I personally believe is a choice!

    She talked about the challenges of getting the series made, saying that many told her it would never happen.

    And, naturally, she reflected on that scene.

    Poor Issa.

    Showrunner Prentice Penny also shared heartfelt words of gratitude to the series, cast and crew, and his family.

    And while I mourn the ending of an era, I take comfort in knowing Issa Rae will be back to HBO in no time, collaborating with comedian Jaboukie Young-White on a Gang's All Queer series, based on Vanessa R. Panfil's book of the same name!
