‘Insecure’ Films Its Farewell Season
Season 5 of the HBO series “Insecure” will be its last. The show launched Issa Rae from her popular web series “Awkward Black Girl” into a mainstream star. She spoke recently about the end of the run.
“I’ve definitely been ready to say goodbye. I’ve given so much of myself, and I know that I don’t want to be in another television show that I’ve created, just because it’s so daunting, and it takes so much of your time. I am just kind of trying to figure out balancing the business side and being behind the scenes with how much I actually want to be in front of the camera. I’m figuring that out, and I feel like I’m at another terrifying crossroads of what’s next.” (Issa Rae to BAZAAR)

Michael B. Jordan’s Killmonger Ready For Black Panther 2
Black Panther star Michael B. Jordan recently spoke on the passing of his co-star Chadwick Boseman and dished on the entire cast’s close-knit bond. Jordan credited the family element for having him down to channel Erik “Killmonger” Stevens again.
“That’s something that is very, very near and dear to my heart for a lot of obvious reasons,” says Jordan, 33, adding of the death of star Chadwick Boseman, “[I] had a really tough year losing somebody close to me. And what that means for that franchise is it was devastating.” “But being in that world in a character that I loved playing, and working with [writer/director Ryan Coogler] and all that good stuff, it’s family. We created a family over there,” he continues. “So to be able to be in that world again is something that, I think, will always be on the table in some capacity.” (People)
