Many of you may have guessed it from the title itself. Yes, that’s Insecure, the famous, highly rated Comedy Series. Insecure is HBO’s highly indexed Comedy Drama.
Overview of Insecure
Created by Larry Wilmore and Issa Rae, HBO indexed this Series as the Best Comedy Series. The Show made its initial release on 1st May 2015, having an IMDB rating of 7.9/10, and received 96% of Rotten Tomatoes.
Starring Issa Rae, Yvonne Orji, Jay Ellis, Natasha Rothwell, Amanda Seales, Kendrick Sampson, Alexander Hodge, and many more lead roles. It got critical acclaim from the NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Comedy Series.
The Series was named “Insecure” because of the awkward experiences faced by African-American Woman Issa Rae. When Issa started working on this Series with the showrunner Larry Wilmore, she had to go through many embarrassments due to being an African-American, which led her to be Insecure. The Series was also acclaimed based on the web series “Awkward Black Girl”.
What Has Happened Till Now (Season 1-4)
The first season started with the bitter experiences faced by Issa (Essa Rae) and Molly (Yvonne Orji). They are known to be the best of friends during their college days at Stanford University. However, during their initial 20s, their perspectives towards life changed when they had tough times maintaining and managing work, relationships, family, and friends.
In their 20s, they both shifted to their hometown Los Angeles, California. Both Issa and Molly are best buddies and are seen sharing a close bond in the series. However, they deal with internal matters such as family issues, fights in the relationship, disputes between them, and their struggle in the African-American community.
Issa Dee (Essa Rae) works in a non-profit organization that favors middle-school students, and the organization is named ” We Got Y’all “. However, she has had ups and downs in her relationship with a long-time boyfriend, Lawrence (Jay Ellis). Lawrence’s startup ceased to function, due to which he faces a struggle and often fights with Issa. On the other hand, Molly has a successful career as a Corporate Attorney but doesn’t know how to date men and find difficulties.
Due to her broken relationship, Issa meets Daniel, and they both kiss, which leads to a fight between the two besties. Issa, trying to impress Daniel, raps a song in a club named ” Broken Pussy”, depicting the situation of Molly.
The episode has a running time of 30-42 minutes and shows the tough times faced by these girls in maintaining their social life struggling with racial discrimination throughout. Racial issues are faced daily by all African Americans in contemporary society.
The episodes of the series are named as if there is a lot of frustration, which shows the persona of the protagonists Issa and Molly. Every episode in Season 1 title has the word ” Fuck” such as “Messy as Fuck”, “Insecure as Fuck”, “Racist as Fuck”, ” Real as Fuck”, etc.
Every Episode in Season 2 has a title having a suffix “Hella” such as “Hella Great”, “Hella Questions”, “Hella Open”, “Hella Shook”, etc. Similarly, Season 3 and Season 4 have the prefix “Like” and “Lowkey”, respectively.
Expected Release Date of Insecure Season 5
The Showrunners and HBO renewed Season 5 in the last year in May 2020. Not a new thing, every series or movie renewed in the previous year was stopped to shoot due to the Pandemic’s Second Wave and Lockdown being imposed. Issa confirmed the starting of production this year on January 21, 2021. If we talk about the Release date, then “Insecure” Season 5 might stream by the end of this year or mid-2022 because so far, we only know that The Production declared a wrap-up last month on June 11, 2021. Thanks to Yvonne’s post, which gave us the notification.
Till now, there’s been no official news regarding the release date, but if we go by the time scale, then viewers should be accessible on Sunday Nights because it might drop its first episode of Season 5 on Sunday between 10-11 pm.
Issa spoke in an interview that she and Prentice are forever grateful and obliged to HBO because HBO believed in them and their work. Lastly, she thanked all the audience watching the series and maintaining the thread giving tremendous support, giving the feeling of contentment.
Santa Claus Bought Good and Bad News
Haha!! What a title. I’ve both Good and Bad News. Good News is our lead actress Essa Rae married her long-term soulmate and companion Louis Diame. Louis Diame is a Senegalese businessman. There are wedding bells and shenanigans for her. She got married on July 26, 2021
The bad news is HBO declared to end the Series, with Season 5 being its last season, which means no more tummy-ache laughter after that.
Insecure Season 5 Expected Plot
No Doubt, Season 4 had dropped a lot of terrific surprises when it came to the storyline. In the beginning, it showed the stability in Issa and Lawrence’s relationship as Issa was ready to move for Lawrence’s new job in San Francisco. However, there dropped a truth bomb where Lawrence disclosed Condola’s pregnancy, bearing his baby.
This indicates that Season 5 will show new hurdles and fights between Issa and Lawrence, and they might break up. Issa Dee might look for another man, and here Nathan comes into play as he is well deserved.
Now many of you might question what will happen to Molly and Issa’s friendship. In my opinion, their friendship will mend but not what was there before. The foundation of their company somewhat wobbled after their massive fight in Season 4.
Expected Cast and New Entries
Very Much Confirmed that our leading ladies who will join us are Essa Rae and Yvonne Orji as Issa Dee and Molly. Apart from that, Essa’s on-screen boyfriend, who would now turn into her ex, Jay Ellis (Lawrence), will also join. Natasha Rothwell playing the role of Kelly will also return. Amanda Seales, who plays the role of Tiffany, will also make a comeback.
Molly and Andrew parted ways, which means Alexander Hodge might not be seen in the next season. It’s still not confirmed. But when it comes to the would-be mother Condola (Christina Elmore), she’ll be seen in many scenes as Lawrence’s wife. Anticipation is that Issa might choose Nathan (Kendrick Sampson) as her new companion and partner after Issa and Lawrence’s break-up. So Nathan will be pretty much confirmed to make a comeback.
