Fans of Insecure, rejoice! The beloved show has been renewed for a fourth season just as the third season has started on HBO.
Issa Rae, who co-created the show with Larry Wilmore, announced the good news on Twitter Thursday morning.
Rae wrote “#InsecureHBO has been renewed for Season 4! Thank you to everyone who has been watching and supporting!” and included a promotional video celebrating the news.
The show is a fan favorite. Its unapologetic blackness, uninhibited expression of the foibles of “adulting,” amazing soundtrack and hilarious characters have all resonated with audiences—black and otherwise.

Rae said in a recent interview that the success of the show is anchored in its predominantly minority crew and the fact that it doesn’t spend time trying to explain blackness to nonblack people.
Insecure’s viewing audience is 62 percent nonblack, but Rae said she still sees the benefit in “surrounding myself with people of color. I could never do this show and have a predominantly white staff.”
Call it a love letter to South Los Angeles, an ode to sisterhood and friendship among black women, or a guide to navigating relationships and dating in the age of Tinder and social media—but whatever you call it, just remember that we get another full season of it.
We are rooting for everybody black.
