“#InsecureHBO has been renewed for Season 4,” the writer and actor excitedly tweeted. “Thank you to everyone who has been watching and supporting!”
Since premiering in 2016, both critics and fans have flocked to the show, which centers on Issa Dee (Rae) and her best friend Molly (Yvonne Orji), as they try to figure out who they are and what exactly they want out of life. Packed with authentic depictions of young, Black life, Insecure often sparks conversations and debates among TV watchers who simultaneously see themselves in the characters and are often frustrated by their choices.
According to Rae, the goal of the show was to make it feel as true-to-life as possible.
“We’re just drawing from real experiences,” Rae told ESSENCE in the September Fashion Issue. “This season (season 3) has felt like we’re really on the pulse of what’s happening now.”
While fans regularly take sides and argue over their faves, one thing is clear, Insecure is a damn good show.
And this year, the Television Academy has taken notice.
Insecure is nominated for two Emmy Awards, including Outstanding Lead Actress In A Comedy Series and Best Cinematography For A Single-Camera Series.
Now, thanks to HBO’s decision to give fans more Issa and Molly, the show now has even more opportunities to rack up accolades.
