The highly-anticipated comedy-drama Insecure, starring show creator Issa Rae, made its return last night for its final season premiere.
HBO’s Insecure aired 10pm EST/7pm PST for its #SeasonByve premiere. Season five’s first episode leads with the L.A. friend group all meeting up at their alma mater Stanford for the 10-year college reunion. Relationships between Issa and her best friend Molly as well as the “oops baby drama” between her and her ex-boyfriend Lawerence take the backseat for this one weekend.
Insecure‘s rollout for the final season included the “Insecure Fest” hosted in L.A. over the weekend where all the cast members came out to celebrate the show’s premiere. The set resembled the character’s hot spots in the show including “The Dunes” apartment building and musical acts such as Jazmine Sullivan took the main stage.

Fans were excited to finally have Insecure back on their screens. See how fans were reacting to the season five premiere:
#InsecureHBO has been a transformative show, not just for Black culture, but the entire industry. As a comedy exec, there’s not a day that goes by that I don’t hear it talked about or brought up in a pitch. Both new and veteran creators use it as a reference. It’s a new blueprint— Jasmyn (@JasmynBeKnowing) October 24, 2021
Are we gonna be okay is the theme of the entire season. You should watch it from that lens. #InsecureHBO— Prentice Penny (@The_A_Prentice) October 25, 2021
Your friend knowing you haven’t eaten based on how you acting is love #InsecureHBO— Kaitlyn (@kaitlynontop) October 25, 2021
I love how Insecure literally plays out the insecurities of adulthood. Everybody is dealing with the shifts in friendships, goals, aspirations, family, careers, everything. That’s real AF. #insecure #insecurehbo— Dear Ashley... (@asj519) October 25, 2021
Kelli deserves all the validation because she actually is the best friend to all of them. #InsecureHBO— stacey.cash (@staceynicole__) October 25, 2021
Issa had mans scoop her from the airport, kissed him, and then clipped the relationship. What album Lawrence play on the ride back?— The Blo CC (@whereswongo) October 25, 2021
