    There’s no word yet on when the show will return, but fans are here for Palmer shooting her shot.

    HBO ordered yet another season of Insecure only a few weeks into season 4.  

    “We’re thrilled that Issa, Prentice [Penny, producer], and the whole Insecure team will be getting back together for a fifth season,” Amy Gravitt, executive vice president of HBO Programming, said at the time. “As we laugh and cringe with recognition, their stories make us all feel a little less alone in the world.”

    Insecure chronicles the life of Issa Dee, played by Issa Rae, who constantly finds herself in several awkward yet strikingly relatable scenarios between her love-life, friendships and career decisions. The series debuted in 2016.

    Insecure season 4 wrapped in June, leaving fans with a lot of Issa-Molly baggage to unpack and all sorts of questions about Issa’s ex, Lawrence. The duo got back to together… only to find out that his short-time girlfriend, Condola, is pregnant. Next season will reportedly dive deep into that entanglement.
