Here's What Issa Rae Has To Say About What To Expect On Season 2 Of “Insecure”

1. Issa Rae shared a bit about what fans can expect on Season 2 of HBO’s “Insecure” while speaking on a panel opening Deadline’s second annual Contenders Emmys on Sunday.

2. In case you forgot (but like, how could you?) Season 1 ended with Lawrence moving out of his and Issa’s apartment (and *ahem* stopping by Tasha’s) after he left Issa for cheating on him.

So now both Issa and Molly have no one but each other and their respective issues to keep them company.

3. And according to Rae, season two will pick up right where Season 1 left off.

“I think with Season 2, we’re picking up where we left off, and we’re exploring just what it looks like when everyone’s doing what they’re supposed to be doing” she told Deadline. “When you’re single, what are you supposed to be doing? When someone tells you you need therapy, what are you supposed to be doing? Without giving too much away, I always tell people to imagine, if your friends had been in the scenarios at the end of Season 1, what would they do, or what would you do? That’s probably how Season 2 will play out.”

4. Rae also talked about her goals as the show’s creator, including honestly depicting black female friendships, which are rarely highlighted accurately on television.

“I think for such a long time, I just was not seeing great black female friendships on television,” she told Deadline. “It was constantly about tearing one another down or throwing shade. There are elements of that, but for the most part, black women are essential to my life.”

5. Season 2 of Insecure is due to air on HBO in July.
