Plot Synopsis

Created by executive producer Issa Rae and consultant Larry Wilmore, INSECURE is a half-hour comedy series that looks at the friendship, experiences and tribulations of two black women, Issa and Molly, living in Los Angeles. These best friends must deal with their own real-life flaws as they attempt to navigate different worlds and cope with an endless series of uncomfortable everyday experiences. The series opens with Issa Dee, in the wake of her 29th birthday, reconsidering her dead-end relationship with Lawrence, her live-in boyfriend. Meanwhile, Issa's best friend, Molly, mourns her singledom and the state of her lady parts. Later, Issa uses an open-mic night as an excuse to reconnect with her ex. Over the course of the rest of the season, Issa attempts to figure out what she wants out of life and how to take control of it, while fumbling her way through this journey. Molly, a corporate attorney who appears to have everything together professionally, struggles inside as she looks for external ways to fix her life. Meanwhile, Issa's boyfriend, Lawrence, who has fallen victim to complacency, works to get his own act together. Frieda, Issa's overeager white co-worker, whose enthusiasm is both annoying and endearing, is at the crux of Issa's racial frustrations at work. Shot in and around South Los Angeles, INSECURE incorporates the music of both indie and established artists of color, and touches on a variety of social and racial issues that relate to the contemporary black experience, while featuring themes that Rae tackled in her book, "The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl," and web series, AWKWARD BLACK GIRL. The eight-episode second season of INSECURE premiered on Sunday, July 23, 2017 at 10:30pm ET/PT on HBO. In the aftermath of her breakup, Issa embraces the chance to explore the single-girl life, just as a challenging new work assignment puts her burgeoning friendship with well-meaning colleague Frieda to the test. Meanwhile, Molly's commitment to self-improvement forces her to confront her worth and future at the law firm, while facing the complex realities of relationships. And Lawrence makes a fresh start at both dating and his new job, but soon discovers that starting over may not be as easy as he thought.
On Sunday, September 10, 2017 at 11pm ET/PT, HBO premiered the "Hella Perspective," the Season 2 finale of INSECURE. Over the course of one pivotal month, Issa, Molly, and Lawrence face choices affecting their work and personal lives, with each considering whether to embrace a new future or look back to the past. One month earlier -- on Tuesday, August 8 -- HBO renewed INSECURE for a third season.
