Crying Real Tears: An 'Insecure' Documentary Is Coming Soon

We're not okay, okay?!

Culture & Entertainment

It’s really happening! After five seasons, Insecure is coming to an end. And to make the ending of the culture-shifting series more emotional, Issa Rae and her team are giving us a documentary. Appropriately titled Insecure: The End, the documentary will give viewers an inside look into the making of the popular HBO series and interviews with cast members such as Issa Rae, who plays Issa Dee, Jay Ellis who plays Lawrence, and Natasha Rothwell who plays Kelli (and also doubles as a writer and supervising producer on the series).


Issa first announced the documentary on her social media pages. “The End, okay?! Produced by the incredible @msdeniese & directed by the phenomenal @jrbland— the documentary special Insecure: The End, streams Sunday, December 26th on @HBOMax.”

Many fans of the show responded emotionally to the tweet.

Insecure has two episodes left and fans have no idea how it’s going to end due to what seems like a (spoiler alert) love triangle between Issa, Lawrence, and Nathan. The star and creator of the show revealed in October that she even changed the ending two weeks before shooting the finale.

"Thank God I had a burst of inspiration of what I wanted it to be, and that's what we ended up shooting," Issa toldEntertainment Weekly. "I stand by it, I like it."

"The other one was good, too, but it just didn't feel like the most [satisfying]. It didn't feel like our show. I can't wait to talk about it when it airs to see if I made the wrong decision."

Uh, the anticipation!

Insecure first premiered in October 2016 and immediately struck a chord with predominantly Black audiences due to its authenticity and the writers and actors' devotion to portraying us in a real way.

The Insecure “Season Byeve” finale is set to air on December 26.

'P-Valley' & 10 Other Shows That Feature Empowered Black Characters

I vividly recall my mother implying that TV couldn’t teach me much of anything, but in reality, we know that representation teaches us a lot! It empowers us and highlights diverse ways of Black life (more so in recent television history) that vary from traditional to not so traditional – though this makes the impact no less real. Television shows like P-Valley highlight the importance of human decency over respectability politics, while other shows allow us to see the value in falling through life with our awkwardness.

Here's Why You Should Ditch Fourth Of July And Have A Family Reunion Instead

“Who made the potato salad?” As summertime kicks off, this is the universal question that, without fail, will be asked at every barbeque and backyard kickback over the coming months. With the Fourth of July also nearing, summertime celebrations and cookouts will be in full force. However, as the tide begins to turn in this new day and age, more Black Americans are celebrating Juneteenth, instead of the Fourth of July, because, after all, there were still over 250,000 Black Americans enslaved in Galveston, Texas during this so-called Independence Day.
