The fifth and final season of Living Single finds Manhattan-based magazine editor Khadijah (Queen Latifah) short one roommate when her cousin Synclaire (Kim Coles) gets married to her longtime fiancé Overton (John Henton). Moving in with Khadijah and her best friend Regine (Kim Fields Freeman) is Ira Lee "Tripp" Williams III, a composer of commercial jingles who aspires to bigger things. Meanwhile, Khadijah's former college roommate Max (Erika Williams) has decided not to move to London with her erstwhile sweetheart Kyle (T.C. Carson). Even so, Kyle is not completely out of her life, as Max learns to her amazement when, at season's end, she discovers the identity of the donor with whose sperm she has been artificially inseminated! In other developments, honeymooners Synclaire and Overton are briefly stranded on a desert island, and once rescued they move to Hollywood, the better for Synclaire to pursue her blossoming acting career. Gold-digging Regine finally marries her millionaire, a fellow named Dexter Knight (Don Franklin). And after a three-year absence, Khadijah's former beau Scooter (Cress Williams) returns to her life, hoping to pick up where he left off...and them's the conditions that prevail as Living Single concludes its five-year run.
