Issa and Lawrence!
After 5 seasons of relatable shenanigans, Issa and her lovable crew found their happy in life (well, except for Tiffany) during a time-hopping series finale that sent social media spiraling into swoonlivion.
In the slightly extended episode, viewers were whisked from celebration to celebration that included Molly and Taurean’s lavish wedding and Kelli’s pregnancy announcement.
Ending how it started, the series used birthdays to show the happiness and growth of Issa, Molly, and Kelli who exemplified Black women having it all.
We also see Nathan scamper out of Issa’s life (again) and slither back (again) after his tender tussle with Lawrence who finally got the love of his back.
At one point, we thought the series would end with Issa choosing herself over Nathan and Lawrence but we knew better. Issa was always going to end up with Lawrence who may have popped the question based on the unexplained ring on her finger.

Overall, “Insecure” gave viewers what they wanted in a heartfelt finale that served as a love letter for the beloved series.
“In some ways, their lives are just getting started,” said Issa in an interview with EW.
“Issa has this business that is thriving, and she’s in this relationship with Lawrence, and who knows whether or not she is helping him raise Elijah, that he’s a part of her life. That’s not the ending that she imagined, so navigating that is work. Kelli and her new role working alongside a friend [Molly], there story is right there, in addition to navigating a child she never thought that she wanted with a partner that she decided to have a child with. Tiffany [Amanda Seales] is pregnant again, separated from all her friends in Denver.
These are stories that we can continue to tell in a sixth season, and that we’d be excited to tell. Actually, not necessarily excited to tell because the story is over [Laughs], but the point is that those are stories that could be told, and I think that that freed us in that way. Of course, Molly, already low key irritated with her husband on her honeymoon, come on, there’s so much to tell there. [Laughs]
