The new comedy will return in 2017.
November 14, 2016
HBO announced today that Insecure has been renewed for a second season. The freshman comedy premiered last month and is six episodes into its run. While ratings have been decent, the half-hour series has garnered a high amount of critical acclaim for its insightful and funny take on contemporary black culture.
Insecure stars Issa Rae, who created the series along with Larry Wilmore, as one of two modern-day black women who share their awkward life experiences through their close friendship. New episodes are currently airing Sunday nights.
10 new episodes of Insecure have been ordered for Season 2, which is slated to return in 2017.

The show essentially centers around her rapping at the beginning/end and some of the issues which arose from her "Broken Pussy" rap.. how is that NOT about rapping??? I'm not saying it's a horrible show. I think it's mediocre (at best). But the inclusion of the rap scenes and storyline absolutely keeps this show in the same stereotypical vein as any other show. Again.. are ALL black people wannabe rappers? You would think so by watching ANY tv show.. including this one. I mean can you imagine Divorce starting/ending with Thomas Haden Church or Sarah Jessica Parker singing lyrics to their latest country song? Or Shameless ending/starting every episode with 'Lip screaming lyrics for his latest thrash song? Of course not... so why is it seemingly mandatory with black shows?

Issa works for a non-profit organization and her best friend is a lawyer. How does that make this a show about wanting to be a rapper? I am a successful black female working in corporate America and this show speaks to me and my work life, my personal life not so much, but I know people in similar relationships.

Is there such a thing as a black American that DOESN'T think they are a "rapper"?? Even the black writers support the stereotypes. I can just imagine... every Latino on TV thinks they can be/are Ricky Martin... every white person on TV thinks they are/can be Garth Brooks/Taylor Swift... how old would that get? Well.. that's what TV does to black people... rappers or thugs... nothing else. This show is no different.

Yay! I love this show, but I loved it when it was a web series and I love Issa's writing. What I love most about the show is how real it is, I think we need more shows and characters that depict young black experiences, how we speak, our varied interest, our intellect and humor. I think the narrative of young black people has been homogenized for far to long and usually into some negative depiction of a disenfranchised life. While that picture is very real for far too many of us, there are still a large number of us who had great parents, went to school, found employment after and are just trying to figure out next step and while that experience is in no way unique to African Americans we rarely get to see blacks in that light. The "Average American" light.

.. That was my point... it is real... and well.. why watch it then??? It's boring. I mean turn off the tv and go live your life... you'll see the same basic situations. True many may not be black and this may be a TINY BIT of an insight into living as a black woman. The office setting with the slightly ratchet temp is really the only intriguing aspect here.

This makes me HAPPY!! If you are not the target demographic you will not get it. But for those of us who do, this show is real AF!!
