In this season of “Twenties,” the star cast explored some of the most relatable issues people in their “Twenties” have to deal with in cities like LA. These challenges enabled Hattie and her friends to learn that being in your “Twenties” is all about figuring yourself out and finding the path to self-fulfillment.

Hattie, Nia, and Marie dealt with personal issues, such as having a baby with an ex-boyfriend they didn’t know was married and getting into a car accident while drunk driving. They also dealt with professional issues, such as aspiring screenwriter Hattie getting fired from a job and trying to get back into acting after being out of it for years.

But at the end of the day, these issues made them stronger and more determined to get to their happy place.

About the Cast of “Twenties”

The whole narrative of the show balances on key characters like the following cast:

Jonica “JoJo” T. Gibbs (Hattie):

Hattie is an actress who plays the female lead in the play “Twenties.” She’s a bit of a wildcard, but her role in the play is very much in line with Jonica’s true personality. She loves to party, and while she’s talented, she doesn’t always take her work as seriously as she should.

Christina Elmore (Marie):

Christina Elmore

Marie from “Twenties” is the main character’s best friend. She is funny, kind, and loyal. She is also a bit of a bad influence on our main character, who often gets in trouble with her. 

Sophina Brown (Ida):

Sophina Brown

Ida B from “Twenties” is a no-nonsense woman who loves to eat and drink and laugh with her best friends but also knows how to set the record straight when she needs to. Sophina Brown plays her, and she will make you laugh until your sides hurt!
