NYFA Alumna Issa Rae Announces Season Two of HBO's "Insecure"

March 17, 2017 After a successful first season of the HBO comedy "Insecure," New York Film Academy alumna Issa Rae has announced the release date for the second season of the series, which she writes, produces, and stars in.

"It’s about to get hot this summer ... hot," said Issa Rae. "July 23 tell your friends, tell your family, tell your enemies to watch 'Insecure' on HBO. We’re coming back happier, stronger, better than ever."

"Insecure" Season 2 will air July 23, 2017. To kick it off, Issa Rae is the cover star of July's Complex magazine.

In her cover story, she tells Complex that Season 2 will see the storyline deepen around Issa and Molly's friendship, and says she drew inspiration from her own life: "They love each other genuinely. It's like a friendship — I mean it's a sisterhood, if anything. Yeah, that definitely reflects my own personal friendships. My friends are like some of my sisters. We know each other in and out and we also know each other's flaws and we'll call them out or work around them, but you know, we love each other flaws and all."

Rae was nominated for a Golden Globe for Best Actress in a TV Comedy or Musical for her performance in season one of the series.

She recently took to Instagram to make an official announcement of the second season premiere.

The popular series left fans with many questions after taking a hiatus in November 2016. Perhaps fans will get the answers they seek in the much-anticipated season two, which will air on HBO June 23, 2017.

Update (July 18, 2018): New York Film Academy congratulates alum Issa Rae for her Emmy Award nomination! Rae is nominated for Best Actress in a Comedy Series for her performance in Season 3 of HBO's Insecure, which she also created and produced.
