On the show Rae plays Issa Dee, who together with her best friend Molly (Yvonne Orji), navigates the single experience in Los Angeles; their peers sometimes feel intimidated by their success. For Season 4, Rae said that all the characters are leveling up and entering the next phase in life. Issa has quit her job and is on a new venture with her passion project of a block party while Molly is in her first relationship in a long time with “Asian BAE” Andrew (Alexander Hodge) and balancing her personal and work life. Lawrence (Jay Ellis) is thriving to level up on his own.
Series regulars also include Yvonne Orji, Ellis, Natasha Rothwell and Amanda Seales.
Insecure was created by Rae & Larry Wilmore; executive produced by Issa Rae, Prentice Penny, Melina Matsoukas, Michael Rotenberg, Dave Becky, Jonathan Berry, Amy Aniobi and Jim Kleverweis.
“We’re thrilled that Issa, Prentice and the whole Insecure team will be getting back together for a fifth season,” said Amy Gravitt, EVP Programming at HBO. “As we laugh and cringe with recognition, their stories make us all feel a little less alone in the world.”
