Over the last four seasons, ‘Insecure’ has solidified its position as one of the best-written dramas on tv. Featuring two black females at the main leads, it lends deep insights into the modern African-American community and their struggles in contemporary LA. The emotional, raunchy, and hilarious story showcases how smart women, with a strong spirit, can bypass stereotypes. Well, now that the show’s fourth edition has ended, you might want to know if there will be an ‘Insecure’ season 5. Read on!
Insecure Season 5 Release Date: When Will it Premiere?
‘Insecure’ season 4 premiered on April 12, 2020, on HBO, and ended with its 10th episode on June 14, 2020. In May 2020, HBO renewed the show for its fifth edition, ahead of season 4’s finale. HBO Programming executive VP Amy Gravitt confirmed the news in a statement as reported by The Hollywood Reporter: “We’re thrilled that Issa, Prentice [Penny], and the whole Insecure team will be getting back together for the fifth season. As we laugh and cringe with recognition, their stories make us all feel a little less alone in the world.”
Yes, the show is making a return but considering the current global circumstances with filming for many titles getting postponed, the new season might be delayed. If shooting resumes sometime later this year, we can expect ‘Insecure’ season 5 to release sometime in 2021.
Insecure Season 5 Cast: Who Can be in it?
Season 5 is expected to see all the lead cast members making their respective comebacks and this definitely includes the lead protagonists and BFFs — Issa Rae as Issa Dee and Yvonne Orji as Molly Carter. Jay Ellis should also return as Martin “Lawrence” Walker, Issa’s love interest, and Alexander Hodge as Andrew, Molly’s partner. Additional stars expected to appear in the next season are Natasha Rothwell as Kelli Prenny, Amanda Seales as Tiffany DuBois, and Kendrick Sampson as Nathan Campbell.
Insecure Season 5 Plot: What Can it be About?
The finale of season four sees Lawrence accepting his new job in San Francisco and Issa being happy for him. She even thinks that she may move in with him in the future and make new friends in the new city. However, things take a drastic turn when it is revealed that Lawrence’s ex, Condola is pregnant. So, it is yet to be seen how Issa reacts to this new bit of news.
Meanwhile, Issa and Molly reunite while the latter breaks up with Andrew. In the next season, we expect the two friends to bond once again in these difficult times. After all, the primary theme of this show is female friendships, and Issa and Molly definitely cannot stay without each other. There is even the additional subplot of Nathan’s return in Issa’s life, which will be explored further in season five as well.
