Issa Rae’s HBO comedy series Insecure has been renewed for a second season with an order of 10 episodes!
Rae expressed her excitement about the renewal and her readiness to get back to the writer’s room via social media.
Insecure has averaged 3.2 million viewers per episode since its debut in October.
The series contains themes from Rae’s highly acclaimed web series, The Misadventures Of Awkward Black Girl, which garnered over 20 million views and nearly 200,000 YouTube subscribers. It explores the black female experience in an unclichéd and authentic way, and revolves around the friendship of two modern day black women and their uncomfortable experiences and racy tribulations. Issa tries to figure out what and who she wants in life, and how to take control of it. Meanwhile, Molly is a successful corporate attorney who appears to have it all but struggles inside as she looks for external ways to fix her life. The series also touches on social and racial issues in addition to issues that relate to the contemporary black experience.
Insecure stars Issa Rae, Yvonne Orji, Jay Ellis, Lisa Joyce, Neil Brown, Jr and is created and executive produced by Issa Rae. Prentice Penny (Brooklyn Nine-Nine), Melina Matsoukas, (Beyonce’s Formation), Michael Rotenberg, Dave Becky and Jonathan Berry will serve as executive producers, and Larry Wilmore serves as a consultant for the series.
