If we've learned anything from Issa Rae's Insecure and now Rap Sh*t, it's that we are always left for wanting more, and now we're getting it. HBO Max has officially signed on for a season two of Issa Rae's Rap Sh*t, and we can't wait. As the show's first season came to a close on September 1, fans were left with many questions and not enough answers. So, we are here are to formally announce we will be getting a second season, and we are sure it's going to be even better than the first.

During the show's first eight-episode season, we saw two estranged high school friends from Miami, Mia (KaMillion) and Shawna (Aida Osman), who rekindle their friendship to form a rap group while still facing the challenges of young Black adulthood. We don't want to give too much away on how season one ended, so make sure to check it out before we are gifted with season two.

"We're so happy to play in the world of 'Rap Sh!t' for another season with this incredibly talented team," executive producer and series creator Issa Rae said in a recent statement. In addition to Rae as executive producer, the comedic genius was joined by showrunner and executive producer Syreeta Singelton, who also worked on Insecure with Rae. "This show and cast are one of a kind, and I'm thrilled to get to do this again with them," Singleton said. "We're going bigger and harder!" That is what we love to hear! This team can truly do no wrong in our eyes.

In addition to the success of Rap Sh*t, Rae was recently nominated for an Emmy in the Outstanding Actress in a Comedy Series category for her last season of Insecure. Although she lost to Jean Smart for Hacks, the actress hopes Insecure is remembered as people's "favorite show" for those who watched. "I hope that people witness the doors that this show has opened, and for me, it has such a fond place in my heart, and I hope it does for everybody else too," Issa told Laverne Cox on the red carpet. Well, girl, it is definitely one of our favorite shows!
