Issa Rae’s new HBO show Insecure has been a labor of love for the actress and writer, and its Oct. 9 premiere is eagerly awaited. Turns out, the wait doesn’t have to be quite so long. You can now watch the pilot of Insecure, aptly titled “Insecure as F**k,” online ahead of the show’s premiere.
The show is now available on all of HBO’s streaming platforms including HBO Now, HBO Go and HBO On Demand. That means you can watch it any time before the Oct. 9 premiere on HBO, and feel cooler than your friends because you have.
Insecure was created by Rae, who also stars. The show will follow the relationship between two black women who are also best friends, and it marks Rae’s first foray into television. Check out a special message from Rae below, in which she adorably announces that the show is available on all the HBO platforms.
