"Insecure"
Season Premiere Sunday, August 12 at 10:30 PM ET/PT on HBO 

 
         In the third season, Issa attempts to navigate her complicated relationship with Daniel, a childhood friend and on-and-off-again fling who’s looking to take his music career to the next level. On the work front, she begins to question her role at the nonprofit “We Got Y’all” and Molly sets boundaries in order to concentrate on her dream job at a black-owned law firm, which she risks sabotaging via her insecurities and hang-ups. Punctuated by Rae’s pointed rap monologues and fantasies, INSECURE is an authentic and insightful exploration of the experiences of contemporary black women.  
 

        After her break-up with Lawrence, Issa tries to get her life back together, working hard to save and earn extra cash while crashing on Daniel’s couch – an arrangement that proves challenging, given their history. Meanwhile, Molly starts a new job at a blackowned law firm, but finds her confidence put to the test when she’s not automatically recognized as “the star.”

          Starring Emmy® and Golden Globe nominee Issa Rae as Issa, Yvonne Orji as Molly, Lisa Joyce as Frieda, Natasha Rothwell as Kelli, Amanda Seales as Tiffany and Y’lan Noel as Daniel, the series follows the friendship of two black women as they deal with their own real-life flaws while attempting to navigate different worlds and cope with an endless series of uncomfortable everyday experiences.
