A creation of Issa Rae and Larry Wilmore, Insecure is an American comedy series that aired its first season on HBO in the year 2016. Taking its inspiration from Issa Rae’s web series, Awkward Black Girl, the show has successfully released five seasons with the last premiering in late 2021. At the present moment, the shift of focus is towards Insecure Season 6.
Insecure has aired a total of five seasons with 44 episodes so far. What makes the series different is how it has made the issues and lives of black people pop up with a touch of relatability and hilarity instead of being provoking in nature or having an immature touch.

Insecure Season 6 – About The Show
Insecure is centered around two best friends, Issa Dee and Molly Carter. Issa and Molly happen to be Afro-Amerian ladies who face some awkward scenarios arising between and around them. When the idea for this show took a rise into the minds of the makers, they intended to make a show that would cater to the encounters and occurrences in the lives of the Afro-American women of the present times.
Finally, as the Insecure became a reality, it delivered exactly what it had initially been aiming for. Issa Rae had once described this series to be tracing ”the complexities of ‘Blackness’ and the reality that you can’t escape being Black.”
The story unfolds from the perspective of its leading ladies, Issa and Molly. These two women have been best friends since their college days and the show explores their professional and personal experiences in Los Angeles, California while they are young and energetic in their twenties.
Issa steps in as a worker at ‘We Got Y’ll’ which is a non-profit based institution. Her relationship with her boyfriend, Lawrence is also brought into the limelight. Molly, on the other hand, has a successful professional life being a corporate counsel but her success rate at dating isn’t impressive. It is around Issa and Molly that Insecure has been woven.
Insecure Season 6 Release Date – When Does Season 6 Arrive?
The series has already released five seasons in a journey that started back in 2016. Insecure Season 1 premiered on October 9, 2016, and ran for 8 episodes that ended on November 27, 2016. Soon after this, the series came up with a second season in July 2017. It was followed by the third and fourth seasons in August 2018 and April 2020 respectively.
On October 24, 2021, the makers returned with the fifth season that ran a length of 10 episodes, ending on December 26, 2021. Now, the discussion revolves around Insecure Season 6 and we have got some news!
The series would not be back with Season 6. This news might make some of the fans feel sad but this is how the makers have always wanted it to be. HBO confirmed in January 2021 itself that the fifth season would conclude the series and this came even before the fifth season had been released.
This decision of ending the series did not come as a result of a viewership crisis or internal conflicts. Issa Rae, the creator of the show revealed that ever since the beginning, she always wanted the Insecure series to have five seasons and that, according to her, would have been appropriate for putting across the story.
Looking at the various factors, the level of satisfaction of the makers, and also keeping in mind that the story has already been given its ending in the previous season, the chances of the arrival of Insecure Season 6 appear to be very bleak. To be honest and straightforward, it won’t be wrong to say that Season 6 would not be happening anytime in the future.
Insecure Season 6 Cast – Who’s In and Who’s Out Of Season 6?
Insecure Season 6 would not become a reality. There is no point in predicting a cast for the next season. However, if the makers ever plan to make an appearance or drop anything related to the show, we expect the major cast members to be definitely retained.
Issa Rae would be the only call for playing the role of Issa Dee while Yvonne Orji would step into the shoes of Molly Carter. Jay Ellis would also be the choice to return as Martin Lawrence Walker. Among others that could be seen is Lisa Joyce as Frieda, Natasha Rothwell in the role of Kelli Prenny, and Amanda Seales playing Tiffany DuBois.
Others that could be expected include Y’Ian Noel in the character of Daniel King, Kendrick Campbell joining in as Nathan Campbell, Leonard Robinson filling in the space for Taurean Jackson, and Courtney Taylor enacting Sequoia.
Insecure Season 6 Plot – What Is Likely To Happen In Season 6?
The sixth season of the Insecure series would not be happening. The reasons are quite clear and leave nearly no hope. Under such circumstances, predicting the plot for Insecure Season 6 would be a futile exercise.
In the previous season, attempts are made by Issa for mending her bond with Molly. Issa finds some stability in her professional life. Also, her personal life undergoes dynamic changes and experiences before she settles as she does towards the end. The relationship between Molly and Tauren also picks up an interesting angle. Not to forget, the plot gets wrapped up by the last episode.
Though the sixth season won’t be arriving, we can hope on an optimistic note that the makers may decide to have a reunion episode someday for the cast of the series. There are no plans for this at the moment but it has happened for many shows in the past, it may happen with the Insecure series as well.
Insecure Season 6 Trailer – Is The Trailer For Season 6 Out?

Season 6 won’t be becoming a reality but we do have the first five seasons to watch and rejoice any time. Here is the trailer of Insecure Season 5 for your comfort if you have been missing on the show –
