Issa Rae's HBO comedy, Insecure, returns for its second season next month, and the actress and producer is dishing on what fans can expect from the new episodes.

"I'm excited to be able to see it," Rae told ET's Kevin Frazier on the silver carpet at this year's BET Awards on Sunday. "We're picking up where we left off. We're leaving no stone unturned. 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," she added. "The truth will be revealed."

Since Rae's series debuted last year, the 32-year-old actress has been catapulted into the spotlight, and she opened up about her stunning red carpet look and her decision to spend her summer enjoying some of the newfound benefits of her success.

"It's summer. I gave a resolution that I was gonna do yacht stuff this summer, and so you gotta look good on a yacht, and to be in a bathing suit," she explained. "So I've just been stressing and working to get to my vacation."

However, she says life hasn't changed much since getting famous. "I don't really go out, so on the occasion I do go out, it just feels like I'm so popular in high school," she joked. "But for the most part, I'm just still regular me."

During the awards show, Rae introduced SZA's musical performance, and fell victim to one of the evening's baffling technical errors. When the actress took the stage, the announcer accidentally introduced her as Yara Shahidi, star of Black-ish, who was presenting later in the show.

Rae laughed off the mix-up, retweeting a comment from a Twitter user who referenced the star's popular YouTube series, Awkward Black Girl: "Wouldn't be @IssaRae if something awkward didn't happen lol."

Rae spoke with ET back in May where she opened up about the second season of her hit show and shared, "I love the stories we're telling."

"Our actors are killing it. Jay [Ellis], Yvonne [Oriji], they're killing it," the director said. "Me and the writers put in work this season. We feel like we're really staying true to life." Check out the video below to hear more.
