When Issa Rae’s acclaimed HBO series returns, her newly single character is struggling with the painfully awkward world of dating — and still thinking about ex-boyfriend Lawrence (Jay Ellis). “I betrayed his trust, and i have to give him space to forgive me,” she tells her friends. (And yes, her old flame Daniel makes an appearance.)
Meanwhile, her best friend Molly (Yvonne Orji) is facing some harsh realities of being a woman in the workplace — when she realizes she gets paid less than a white male colleague.
At a recent appearance at the BET Awards, Rae told Entertainment Tonight that next season will pick up where last season left off.
“We’re leaving no stone unturned,” said Rae. “If you have questions, they are gonna be answered [in the] first episode…. I think there are things that haven’t been explored that will be explored around season two. The truth will be revealed.”
