HBO Renews Insecure for a Fifth Season!
HBO has renewed its comedy series Insecure for a fifth season! The Golden Globe-nominated series debuted its ten-episode fourth season on April 12.
“We’re thrilled that Issa, Prentice, and the whole Insecure team will be getting back together for a fifth season,” said Amy Gravitt, executive vice president of HBO Programming. “As we laugh and cringe with recognition, their stories make us all feel a little less alone in the world.”
Insecure explores the black female experience. It follows the friendship of two black women as they deal with their own real-life flaws while attempting to navigate different worlds and cope with an endless series of uncomfortable everyday experiences.
Season 4 continues to follow the main characters in the aftermath of the decisions they made in the last season. Issa pursues a passion project she actually cares about, Molly navigates a real relationship for the first time, Lawrence figures out what leveling-up means for him, and we see the effect of Tiffany’s new baby on the dynamic of the friend group. Along the way, we’ll see these characters evaluating relationships, both new and old, in an effort to figure out who and what comes with them in this next phase of their lives.
The comedy-drama series stars Emmy, Golden Globe, and NAACP nominee Issa Rae (The Photograph, The Hate U Give, Little) as Issa Dee, Yvonne Orji as Molly Carter, Jay Ellis (Escape Room) as Lawrence Walker, Lisa Joyce as Frieda, Natasha Rothwell (Saturday Night Live) as Kelli, Amanda Seales (black-ish) as Tiffany DuBois and Alexander Hodge (Tommy) as Andrew Tan. For her performance in the series, Rae has already received two Golden Globe and one Emmy nominations for Best Actress in a Comedy Series.
Insecure was created by Issa Rae & Larry Wilmore; executive produced by Issa Rae, Prentice Penny, Melina Matsoukas, Michael Rotenberg, Dave Becky, Jonathan Berry, Amy Aniobi and Jim Kleverweis.
