HBO’s Insecure has been renewed for a fourth season, and even though the third season is only midway through, HBO announced the comedy’s renewal for at least one more year. Based on Issa Rae’s Awkward Black Girl web series, Issa’s character depicts the struggles of a young black woman attempting to find her own way in L.A.
The Insecure co-star and creator, Issa Rae, took to Twitter yesterday to thank Insecure fans for making the show’s renewal possible. Rae was also recently nominated for an Emmy.
Subverting the stereotype of the strong, independent black woman, HBO’s Insecure conveys the challenges and experiences of best friends, Issa and Molly, as they navigate uncomfortable everyday experiences. Insecure originally broadcasted on November 8, 2016.
The show has been named by TVLine as a Peak TV Treasure, a form of recognition that uncovers good TV in a culture where we are saturated in channels, streaming devices, and options. In their review of the show back in 2017, TVLine says if you enjoy the following, you’ll probably be a an of Insecure:
“Fresh depictions of the modern African-American experience; smart jokes about dumb racial stereotypes; slow-burning rom-coms with serious emotional payoff; freestyle raps about malfunctioning vaginas.”
Of course, that isn’t all the show is about. Insecure is a comedic, yet poignant portrayal of black women and their experiences. The show transgresses boundaries with its satiric wit and discussions of identity and belongingness in contemporary culture.
If you haven’t checked out Issa Rae’s Insecure, don’t wait a moment longer. Between the fascinating love triangle and the never-ending awkward experiences, the show truly is worthy of Peak TV notoriety. is on Sunday evenings on HBO.
