HBO returns to burn up the airwaves with Season 4 of the hit series Insecure, which will return with 10 episodes, feeding an overdue craving by the show’s dedicated viewership.
The Season 4 premiere is on Sunday, April 12 (10:00-10:30 p.m. ET/PT).
INSECURE follows our favorite characters as they evaluate their relationships, both new and old and deal with the next phase of life.
Via thrillist.com, “Adapted from her career-catapulting web series Awkward Black Girl, Issa Rae’s HBO series Insecure has become one of TV’s best series. It’s been praised for its diverse team of writers and their ability to tell nuanced stories about a pair of 20-something best friends in LA, navigating love, their careers, and the Black American experience. Rae, show running the series she stars in, has gotten her fair share of awards recognition with two Golden Globe nominations and one Emmy nom for her performance as the relatable Issa Dee.”
According to Blackfilm.com, “Season four follows the main characters in the aftermath of the decisions they made in the last season. Issa pursues a passion project she actually cares about, Molly navigates a real relationship for the first time, Lawrence figures out what leveling-up means for him, and we see the effect of Tiffany’s new baby on the dynamic of the friend group. Along the way, we’ll see these characters evaluating relationships, both new and old, in an effort to figure out who and what comes with them in this next phase of their lives.”
INSECURE stars Issa Rae. Other series regulars include Yvonne Orji, Jay Ellis, Natasha Rothwell, Amanda Seales, Kendrick Sampson and Alexander Hodge. Recurring this season are Christina Elmore and Jéan Elie.
Created by Issa Rae & Larry Wilmore; executive produced by Issa Rae, Prentice Penny, Melina Matsoukas, Michael Rotenberg, Dave Becky, Jonathan Berry, Amy Aniobi and Jim Kleverweis; co-executive producers, Laura Kittrell and Phil Augusta Jackson.
The Season 3 finale aired in September of 2018 and fans weren’t feeling the idea of waiting for a 2020 return.

In addition to Insecure, Rae has also blown up in movies, so juggling her expanding schedule has been difficult. As if she hasn’t already been blessed plenty, the show returns at a time when most people are stuck at home under coronavirus quarantine until at least April 30, so those first two episodes should be a ratings bonanza for the show considering how long fans have had to wait.
It’s almost a perfect storm.
