We’re not squealing; you’re squealing.

Though it may only be halfway through its much-anticipated second season, Issa Rae’s Insecure has already been renewed by HBO for an upcoming third.

The hit summer comedy, created by Rae and Larry Wilmore, was criminally passed over for an Emmy nod this year. Following the friendship of two young black women, season 2 picked up with Issa yearning for love after we witnessed her breakup with boyfriend Lawrence (Jay Ellis), who has already begun to move on. So far, season 2 has delivered some of the show’s most hilarious, self-aware, and raw scenes — with a stellar soundtrack to boot.

Earlier Tuesday, Rae also announced the news on Twitter:

Along with the Insecure news, HBO revealed that Dwayne Johnson’s Ballers is getting a fourth season. “We’re thrilled that the summer lineup of Ballers and Insecure connected with our viewers out of the gate,” Amy Gravitt, executive vice president of HBO programming, said in a statement. “We’re so proud to work with Dwayne, Issa and all of the amazing talent in both shows.”

Insecure airs Sundays at 10 p.m. ET on HBO.
