HBO recently dropped the full trailer to its hit comedy Insecure, created by and starring Issa Rae!

We’re back at it as we catch up with our faves Issa (Rae), Molly (Yvonne Orji) and Lawrence (Jay Ellis). What has Issa been up to since the big “Best Buy breakup?!”

From the trailer, it looks like she’s been hilariously sending sexts to Lawrence, trying to dive into a “ho phase” and facing the inevitable reconnection with Daniel (Y’lan Noel). Throughout it all, she realizes that she needs to give Lawrence space to forgive her. She’s growing! Meanwhile, Lawrence turns to his pals in order to reconcile with the possibility of Issa “playing” him. As for Molly, she inadvertently realizes that she’s being paid less than her White male counterpart, an all too real and familiar concept for black women professionals.

There’s even a peek on the insight being the challenges of being a black women overall, from juggling the “perfect” career, relationship and social life all while fighting against the “cards” stacked against them.

Other familiar faces are back such as Tiffany (Amanda Seales) and her hubby Derek (Wade Allain-Marcus) as well as the hilarious Kelli (Natasha Rothwell). This next season has been much-anticipated by myself as well as a bunch of other folks and time is coming soon!

Season 2 of Insecure premieres on July 23 at 10:30pm.
