It's finally time to watch Insecure season 5 online, to see how the final season wraps up Issa and Molly's journeys. They still have a bit of glowin' up and growin' up to do. 

Insecure season 5 release date and time

Insecure season 5 premieres tonight (Sunday, October 24) at 10 p.m. ET on HBO and HBO Max.

Insecure season 5 picks up with quite a few dangling threads. Issa (Issa Rae) and Molly (Yvonne Orji) are trying to rebuild their friendship after their estrangement. A trip to Stanford for their 10-year reunion brings back a lot of old memories for the former besties, but it also highlights how much things have changed since their college days.

Meanwhile, both women's love lives are a mess. Issa had rekindled her relationship with Lawrence (Jay Ellis) and was even planning to move to San Francisco for his new job. Then, he dropped a huge bombshell: His ex, Condola, was pregnant! Not only that, Issa had also started hanging out again with Nathan (Kendrick Sampson). Plus, Queen Sugar star Kofi Siriboe is joining the cast in Insecure season 5 and looks like he may be a potential new love interest.

And more importantly, Issa has to figure out her career ambitions and goals following the success of the Block Party. 

Here's everything you need to watch Insecure season 5. Plus, watch the trailer below:
