The announcement of the imminent premiere of Season 4 came in the form of a clip of Issa standing in front of a mirror rapping:

“It’s time to level up hoe, call me elevator. Not worried about no (expletive), not worried about no hater. I’m on my hustle (expletive), like I run the neighborhood. Bigging up my block, ain’t no (expletive) I would”

She is joined by two more "Issas" in different outfits in the three-part mirror, who exchange quips until the middle Issa bends over and rips her skirt down the back, at which she comments that her (expletive) is getting too fat.

The teaser is accompanied by a caption in which the actress and creator of "Insecure" announced the return of Season 4, scheduled to begin on April 12, 2020.


"Insecure" is based on her Issa's hit web series, "Awkward Black Girl," and written by the actress and Larry Wilmore.

"Insecure" premiered online in September 2016, on HBO Now, where it was an instant hit.

The American Film Institute selected "Insecure" as one of the top 10 Television Programs of the Year in 2017, and Issa has been nominated for two Golden Globe Awards nominations for Best Actress.

She also landed a nomination for a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series.

Four years ago, when all I had was a web series and a book, @Essence put me on my first cover with four incredible women I look up to: Ava, Mara, Shonda and Ms. Debbie. It was their "Game Changers" issue and I kept thinking, "I can't believe they chose me." That cover meant so much to me because it validated my work on a platform I respected AND it was a nurturing recognition of promise, a promise that I didn't necessarily see in myself at the time. Four years later -- entering the fourth season of my TV show, and shooting my fourth movie in New York -- they honored me with this solo cover. Thank you, Essence, for helping me to deliver on that promise you saw years ago, and changing the game for me. 📸: @itayshaphoto Hair: @lovingyourhair Face: @joannasimkin Fits: @jasonrembert
