HBO’s Insecure will kick off its fourth season starring Issa Rae on Sunday, April 12, 2020 at 10pm ET/PT. The new season of the popular series created by Rae and Larry Wilmore will consist of 10 half-hour episodes, and HBO just released details on what fans can expect of the first five episodes.

The season four cast includes Yvonne Orji, Jay Ellis, Natasha Rothwell, Amanda Seales, Kendrick Sampson, and Alexander Hodge. Rae executive produces with Prentice Penny, Melina Matsoukas, Michael Rotenberg, Dave Becky, Jonathan Berry, Amy Aniobi and Jim Kleverweis.

The Plot: “Season four follows the main characters in the aftermath of the decisions they made in the last season. Issa pursues a passion project she actually cares about, Molly navigates a real relationship for the first time, Lawrence figures out what leveling-up means for him, and we see the effect of Tiffany’s new baby on the dynamic of the friend group. Along the way, we’ll see these characters evaluating relationships, both new and old, in an effort to figure out who and what comes with them in this next phase of their lives.”
