A new season of “Insecure” was just given the greenlight. Deets on the upcoming season, plus Issa Rae explains the inspiration behind the name of Season 4’s new character, Condola, inside…


The “Insecure” gang is coming BACK for another season!

Issa Rae’s uber popular HBO comedy series will be returning for a fifth season and we’re high key excited. The Season 5 announcement comes less than three weeks after its Season 4 premiere (April 12th). Woot!



Hopefully, fans won’t have to wait for Season 5 as long as they did for Season 4.


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

And that’s why fans love the show. Real-life young, black and fabulous folks can relate to the themes in the series and its portrayed in a way that keeps fans entertained.



Season 4 introduced “Insecure” fanatics to a new character, Condola Harris (played by Christina Elmore). Condola is Lawrence’s (played by Jay Ellis) new love interest and Issa’s new “friend.”

Fans instantly hopped on social media to react to Condola’s name and wondered the inspiration behind the name. Some figured it out right off the bat, while others were clueless. Issa hopped on IG Stories to break down where her name came from. The EMMY nominated actress said fans were hitting her up left and right questioning her about the name choice, so she had to give a quick history lesson.

”Actually, it came about because [writer/executive producer/showrunner] Prentice [Penny] was sharing a story about how when he was younger and he was kind of dating with intention, it was all about how to find his Claire Huxtable, because, you know, he’s old as f*ck. So, it was just like, ‘Oh, I’m trying to find my Clair Huxtable, that’s what I’m looking for in a woman.’ And so, we started thinking about Lawrence as he starts to date with intention…and who would he be looking for?”

She continued, “So, I think the natural thought process was, Phylicia Rashad, someone his age…he’d would be looking for his ‘Condola Rashad.’”

Condola Phylea Rashad is the daughter of “Cosby Show” alum Phylicia Rashad and Ahmad Rashad. As you know, her mom played the matriarch on the show, Claire Huxtable.
