Happy AF: Insecure Renewed For Second Season On HBO
Atlanta is getting a second season, Master of None is returning for Season 2, and HBO just gave Issa Rae’s Insecure a second season. It’s like a dream come true for lovers of thought-provoking and yet hilarious comedy with just a side of ratchetivity going on.
After just having eight episodes for the premiere season, HBO has given Insecure (along with fellow freshman shows Westworld and Divorce) the green light to get working on 10 episodes for Season 2. According to Deadline, it’s unclear if Larry Wilmore will have more involvement with the show in its second season. He took part in the developmental stage of creating the series, but left to focus on his late-night Comedy Central series, The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore. That series was cancelled in August, so who knows? He could be back. But Prentice Penny will continue to lead the Insecure ship as showrunner.
Rae celebrated the news with her team of writers on Instagram:
And HBO’s marketing team is just as excited as the rest of us:
More Issa! More Molly! And we’re hoping for a lot more of super fine Lawrence and Daniel. Now if we could just move that 30 minutes to an hour-long series, that would make this rainbow of good news even brighter, but we won’t push our luck…
