While nobody likes seeing their favorite television shows reach their conclusion, all good things must come to an end even if it may upset a few people in the process. Most of us can probably remember the bittersweet moments watching the series finale of a show they spent years watching, feeling as if they are saying goodbye to an old friend for the last time and relishing in all of the good memories made throughout the series’ run. Though we can rewatch any of these series over and over again, it is virtually impossible to recreate the magic that is felt when you watch a new series for the first time while following along with your friends and family and hypothesizing what could come next. Fans of one series in particular are about to experience these feelings and everything that comes with them when the fifth and final season of Insecure debuts next month, with the official trailer for the new season fresh off the presses.
First debuting in 2016, Insecure follows the story of two African-American women in their late 20’s living in South Los Angeles as they navigate life while dealing with the struggles of being in their 20’s as well as being black in America. Challenging circumstances to say the least, however the series’ stars Issa Rae and Yvonne Orji have done an excellent job in their respective roles throughout the series’ first four seasons. Now the fifth and final season of Insecure is on the way, with the first official trailer for the new season being unveiled this week to the pleasure of eager fans. In it, Rae and Orji’s characters are front and center as they begin to think about some substantial life changes that could be integral in shaping what happens in this upcoming season. Interested fans and HBO Max subscribers will have to wait just a few short weeks when the final season of Insecure premieres on October 24th.
Issa Rae and co-creator Larry Wilmore began working on Insecure as early as 2013, attempting to get the series off its feet years before it actually premiered. Now the series is set to air its fifth season with them at its helm, which only serves as a testament to its run over the past few years. It should be interesting to see how they decide to punctuate the series when the fifth and final season of Insecure debuts on October 24th.
