In 2016 we witnessed HBO’s adaptation of Issa Rae’s popular series “Awkward Black Girl” into a new comedy show “Insecure”. Four seasons later and what has become of the popular comedy show? Insecure boasts of four successful seasons as well as 11 nominations for the Emmy’s!
As the hype around the series continues to grow, fans can’t wait for the series’ fifth season! No need to be anxious, Insecure is definitely being renewed for season 5! Deadline confirmed to fans, following the conclusion of the fourth season in May 2020, that the series will be renewed for season 5! Issa Rae also posted a video conference with some of the show’s cast working from home! The big question is what should fans expect? Should they hope for another edge-of-the-seat epic season?
When will Insecure Season 6 Happen?
The creators of Insecure revealed in January 2021 that season 5 will be the final appearance of the Hbo show. At the announcement time, creator of the series and performer Issa Rae stated that they “always designed to tell this drama across five seasons” and are “extremely thankful that HBO trusted in our series from the start and genuinely believed in us to see our idea through to the conclusion.”
Insecure Season 5 Release Date: When will it air?
Now that we are aware of the series’ renewal for the fifth season, when should fans expect the show’s season 5 premiere? At least fans can feel relieved knowing that the written script is available.
According to Variety, Issa Rae (A Black Lady Sketch Show) and her team hope to kick off the production in the Fall. But the team is not certain whether they will actually begin the production in the Fall. We might actually be forced to wait even longer than expected. There are so many ‘ifs’ in the team’s schedule! The pandemic is not making it any better! Fans hope that a replica of the season 4 premiere in Spring will occur. But Issa’s concerns are demotivating!
Season 5 of Insecure will premiere on HBO and HBO Max on October 24, 2021.
Insecure Season 5 Cast: Who will be in?
Insecure can never be the same without its lead cast members; expect all the main characters back! Issa Rae will definitely be back as Issa Dee, Amanda Seales as Tiffany, Jay Ellis as Lawrence, Natasha Rothwell (The White Lotus) as Kelli, and Yvonne Orji (Vacation Friends) as Molly. Alexander Hodge might not be returning following Andrew’s bread up with Molly. It is difficult to tell if Andrew is coming back! Fans can also expect Christina Elmore (Twenties) to return as Condola because she might just stick around after the news she dropped at the end of season 4!
