Fans of the hit comedy-drama celebrated the news by retweeting the post more than 6,000 times and adding hundreds of comments.
“This show is going to have a whole new life!” a spectator replied.
“Whuuuuuuttt????? Yesss baby!!!” another person replied.
“I guess I know what I’m watching for the 100th time”, someone else share.
“Definitely reviewing/binging”, another person tweeted.
Insecure premiered in 2016 and ended production in December 2021.
As previously reported, the new licensing deal with rival Netflix is said to be driven by financial considerations, as Warner Bros. Discovery faces significant debt following merger between former WarnerMedia and Discovery, Inc.
The deal is not exclusive, allowing the show to continue to air on Warner Bros.’ own platform. Discovery, Max.
Other HBO titles including Band of Brothers, The Pacific, Six Feet Under, And Ballers should start streaming on Netflix in the near future.
The licensing agreement marks a major change for Warner Bros. Discovery.
The company has traditionally limited the licensing of shows to its own corporate umbrella, such as when it recently aired episodes of Insecure on OWN (which is owned by Warner Bros. Discovery), marking a rare opportunity for the series to air on basic cable.
