Season 5 of Insecure started off with a bang. Insecure, the HBO sitcom about an African-American woman and her life in Los Angeles, has always been one of my favourite shows. In Season 4, Issa Rae’s character came into her own as an independent businesswoman who could not be pushed around by anyone including herself. In this season she is still strong but less sure of herself due to some major changes in her life. Know everything about Insecure Season 5.
