Issa Rae’s ‘Insecure’ season 4 is almost here

The popular HBO comedy is currently filming for a 2020 premiere

Fans of Issa Rae's "Insecure" were disappointed this April when HBO announced the hit series would not be returning until 2020. Now, the wait is almost over.

Rae recently announced that season four of the show had begun filming, and fans could look forward to a winter premiere at the beginning of 2020.

Over the past three seasons, the show has remained popular among both viewers and critics because of the accurate portrayal of the black millennial woman experience.

The timing of the fourth season was pushed back after Rae was pulled into several other projects, including the film “Little,” which premiered in April, and “The Black Lady Sketch Show,” where she serves as executive producer.

There's also been talk recently of Rae tackling a reboot of the popular '90s film "Set It Off."

“Issa became a big movie star,” Casey Bloys, HBO programming chief, told Vulture. “We’re not the first place to deal with this, but when you’re in business with very creative and talented people, there’s a lot more opportunities to do things.”

With the announcement, Rae also hinted there would be more episodes for the upcoming season. While the first three seasons featured only eight episodes, fans can expect 10 for season four. They can also give themselves a pat on the back, because the increase in the amount of episodes is mostly due to their demand.
