After getting just three episodes into Insecure's season 2, HBO has announced that they will be renewing the Issa Rae hit for a third season, according to Deadline. HBO has also renewed Ballers for season 4.
"We’re thrilled that the summer lineup of Ballers and Insecure connected with our viewers out of the gate," said executive vice president of HBO Programming, Amy Gravitt, in a press release. "We’re so proud to work with Dwayne [Johnson], Issa and all of the amazing talent in both shows."

"Me, all day at work after hearing this news."
"Now that's what I call growth! Such great news, major congratulations to you all!"

While the show has been heralded as an example of Black creativity, and Rae herself as a savior for Black women, the actress told Refinery29 last year that she wants the show to be for everyone.
"All the elements we’ve had in the show are elements that anybody has gone through," she explained. "Anyone can be like, ‘Oh my gosh, I know that person, I am that person, I want to be that person, or I don’t want to be that person.’ And yes, it's relatable in a way that we haven’t really gotten to see Black people be before. But at the end of the day? You should watch my show because it's funny!”
You don't need to tell us twice.
