Issa Rae is back and as Insecure as ever.
Everyone’s favorite Awkward Black Girl is returning to HBO this July for the second season of her critically acclaimed show Insecure. It’s been almost eight months since the show ended its phenomenal first season, and fans have been eagerly anticipating the show’s return after HBO announced it would be renewing the series.
Yesterday, writer and creator Issa Rae dropped a new trailer, and it’s got the internet lit. As Calvin Harris’ Slide ft Frank Ocean plays in the background Issa gets caught up in a daydream of a teaser trailer, hinting at things to come. Her situation with her maybe boyfriend Lawrence is still “hella confusing”. Her wandering eye to her maybe more than a side piece Daniel is still hella tempted.
The 50-second trailer doesn’t offer much more than that, but there are a few things that stayed tried and true, despite Issa’s cliffhanger growing pains. Her group of friends (or frenemies?) is still by her side, and her style, if anything, has stayed consistent it not taken up a notch.
The trailer ends….well awkwardly, setting the tone for the next season. The star of the series got caught slippin at a red light, a cardinal sin in the world of Los Angeles.
Fans can look forward to the premiere of HBO’s Insecure on July 23 at 10:30 pm.
