Insecure is an American comedy-drama TV series written by Issa Rae, and is partially based on her acclaimed web series Awkward Black Girl. It was created by Rae and Larry Wilmore, and premiered online on September 23, 2016, via HBO Now and HBO Go, before airing weekly on HBO from October 9, 2016.
On November 14, 2016, HBO renewed the show for a second season which premiered on July 23, 2017. On August 8, 2017, HBO renewed the show for a third season, which premiered on August 12, 2018. On September 6, 2018, HBO renewed the series for a fourth season, which started airing on April 12, 2020.
Insecure has received critical acclaim since its debut in 2016. In 2017, the American Film Institute selected it as one of the top 10 Television Programs of the Year. For her performance on the series, Rae has received two Golden Globe Award nominations for Best Actress – Television Series Musical or Comedy, in addition to a Primetime Emmy Award nomination for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series.
Rae began working on a comedy series pilot with co-star Larry Wilmore back in 2013. The show was planned to be about the awkward experiences of a contemporary African-American woman. Rae and Wilmore eventually settled on the current title of Insecure. HBO picked up the pilot in early 2015, and then greenlit the show for production.
At HBO’s 2016 Television Critics Association session, Issa Rae explained that the series will examine “the complexities of ‘blackness’ and the reality that you can’t escape being black.”
Within the first season, eight-episodes unpacked the story of the black female experience from the perspective of two female protagonists, Issa (Issa Rae) and Molly (Yvonne Orji) who have been best friends with each other since their college days at Stanford. Both in their late 20s, they navigate career and relationship experiences while living in their hometown Los Angeles, California. The two share a close bond, and throughout the show, they deal with internal struggles within themselves, their friendship, and the African American community.
Issa works at a non-profit that benefits middle-school aged students of color called “We Got Y’all”. She struggles to put the spark back into her relationship with her long-term boyfriend, Lawrence (Jay Ellis). Molly is a successful corporate attorney who has career success but difficulty with dating men.
