HBO’s Insecure season 2 premiere live stream: Watch episode 1 online


Insecure’s Issa and Molly are back tonight for the show’s season 2 premiere on HBO.

It’s been less than a year since the debut of HBO’s critically acclaimed half-hour series Insecure, which follows and trials and tribulations of Issa and Molly, two black friends in their early 30s living in Los Angeles who struggle to balance their personal and professional lives.

The comedy, inspired by creator and star Issa Rae’s popular web series Awkward Black Girl, got such a positive reception (including a Golden Globe nomination for Rae) that the cable network decided to pair it with Dwayne Johnson’s Ballers on a night headlined by Game of Thrones, which continues to break ratings records.

The first season of Insecure saw the dissolution of the relationship between Issa and Lawrence after she admitted to cheating on him with her former flame, Daniel, while Lawrence was seen moving on with a bank teller in the finale. While the show was never a strong ratings performer, its numbers did improve throughout the season, earning its highest ratings for the season finale in November with 565,000 viewers for its initial airing compared to the 371,000 viewers who tuned in for the series premiere a month earlier.

A teaser trailer for the new season showcased the return of both Lawrence and Daniel for season 2, along with Issa and Molly’s friends Kelli (Natasha Rothwell) and Tiffany (Amanda Seales), who have both been promoted to series regulars after recurring in season 1.

Additionally, the second season’s official trailer finds Issa going on a series of dates, before attempting to win Lawrence back and later embracing her “hoe phase,” while Molly struggles to receive equal pay at work as an attorney.

The official synopsis for season 2, episode 1, “Hella Great,” reads:

"“Issa struggles in the aftermath of her breakup with Lawrence, while facing challenges at a new work assignment. Molly questions her worth at work, while Lawrence adjusts to his new living arrangement.”"

Several critics have already chimed in with praise for the show’s sophomore effort, with both Yahoo TV and EW noting that it feels “more assured” than the first season, while The Hollywood Reporter and Newsday credit the work of Insecure’s growing ensemble cast for its continued improvement.
