Actress KeKe Palmer was cast to appear on the final season of Insecure, according to Entertainment Weekly. The actress had joked about being on the Issa Rae show on Twitter in 2020, and now the actress has snagged a role.
Fans mistakenly thought Palmer was starring in the final season after she wrote a post about being excited that season 5 of Insecure was coming soon.
“Hey@IssaRae,” wrote Palmer. “There’s been a mix up. I posted about my excitement for season 5 of Insecure and now everyone thinks I’m gonna be on it. We can’t let them down, put me in to beat Condola’s ass real quick.”
Issa Rae replied,
“So this the frame right before you beat her ass, right?”
The character of Condola is pregnant with Issa’s character’s long-time love interest, Lawrence. After she repordely got a role on the show, Palmer joked on Instagram to be careful what you wish for.
“Careful what you wish for 🥴Lololololol….Genuinely so thankful to @issarae! I always shoot my work shots(cause I loves to werk 😅), what’s the worst that can happen? Present your skill, you never know how it can be of service. 🙏🏾.”
The trailer for season five was released the same day, and it shows Palmer’s character standing near Condola, who is holding her newborn. No more news about the 28-year-old’s role has been made public, but the clip teases Issa and Molly’s relationship and the return of Nathan (Kendrick Sampson).
