Rae joined her co-stars Yvonne Orji and Jay Ellis and writer/director/EP Prentice Penny at the Television Critics Association press tour in Pasadena, California, where they debuted the new trailer and discussed the new season. “This season is about our characters leveling up, entering that next stage of their life,” Rae said. Prentice added that the characters will be asking themselves if their relationships are in their lives for “a reason or a season”.
Rae also addressed her sly Oscar commentary during the nominations. “John Cho and I were told to banter for five seconds so that was my banter,” Rae said. “I didn’t lie. I said congratulations and there were men there.”
Asked to further expand on her thoughts regarding the Academy’s lack of recognition for female directors, Rae succinctly added, “The Academy needs to do better… I just don’t want to get too worked up about it. It is what it is at this point. It’s annoying.”
Here’s the official Insecure Season 4 synopsis from HBO:
“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.”
Insecure Season 4 returns to HBO on Sunday, April 12, at 10/9c. Watch the trailer below:
