Fans can expect unapologetic honesty from season 5

In addition to our beloved characters growing and changing, Penny says we can expect them to be more honest than we’ve seen them before. “Nobody’s holding back anything, so let’s see where that gets them,” he told Buzzfeed. “We always viewed this season as the characters’ lives are not ending, it’s just that the writers and the audience won’t be watching them anymore. We never wanted to write an ending. We always wanted to write it like this is the next phase of their lives, and if you were to watch Season 6, these are the stories we would be telling in this world.”

Will Issa and Lawrence get back together on ‘Insecure’?

Season 4 saw Issa and Lawrence rekindle their relationship after an extended breakup. However, just as they appeared to be back on the right track, Lawrence’s ex-girlfriend Condola (Christina Elmore) revealed was pregnant with his child.

At the end of the season 5 premiere, fans watched Issa choose herself over an uber-complicated situation with Lawrence. In the episode, Lawrence picks Issa up from the airport. As they exit the car when they arrive at her apartment she stops him. “Lawrence, I had a chance to think,” she says. Her voice trails off and the two just stare at each other.

Lawrence reluctantly nods and responds, “Yea, I know.” The impending birth of a new life is a lot for anyone, but there is still a possibility that the pair could get back together.
