HBO Renews ‘Insecure’ For a Second Season


Loving Issa Rae’s new comedy Insecure? Then you’re in luck. HBO announced the series has been picked up for another season.

The show, which the former Awkward Black Girl creator both writes and stars in, has been a hit for the network, connecting to an audience that has been ignored for far too long. In the show, Rae plays Issa Dee, a non-profit worker whose life isn’t quite going according to plan.

According to HBO:

Modern-day Black women are usually portrayed as strong, confident and “flawless.” But Issa and Molly are definitely not“killing it.” These best friends must deal with their own real-life flaws as they attempt to navigate different worlds and cope with an endless series of uncomfortable everyday experiences.

Created by Issa Rae and Larry Wilmore, the comedy series Insecureexplores the black female experience. Rae stars as Issa and Yvonne Orji stars as Molly. Over the course of the season, Issa attempts to figure out what she wants out of life and how to take control of it, while fumbling her way through this journey. Molly, a corporate attorney who appears to have everything together professionally, struggles inside as she looks for external ways to fix her life.

Over on Twitter, Rae said she’s “excited” to get to work on season two of the show.

And we can’t wait to watch!
