The Internet Is Shook After Issa Rae Drops A Stunner About Lawrence's Future On 'Insecure'
Say what now? 

The season three premiere of Issa Rae's hit HBO series, Insecure, arrives on Sunday, August 12th. 

Sneak previews that we’ve seen so far show Issa’s character embarking on a serious apartment hunt, and now we've found out that one of the main characters will probably not be very present in the new season.

Vulture reports during the third annual Insecure Fest in Los Angeles this past weekend, Issa Rae and Prentice Penny revealed that season three of the show will take a break from Jay Ellis' character, Lawrence.

Viewers watched Issa and Lawrence's emotional farewell during the season two finale, which left Lawrence's progression in the story pretty definite.

"No, I don't care!" Issa said of the decision and the potential backlash. "We want to stay as true to life as possible. They had a great conversation at the end of season two and it was just about like, hey, she's moving on Daniel, sometimes we have those conversations. You never see the exes again. And it's OK! You gotta explore life without Lawrence."


Prentice then stressed that Lawrence leaving the picture makes for a more realistic progression.

"At the end of the day, we're always trying to tell stories that are true and authentic," he explained. "We were in the writers room and we were initially talking about, 'OK, well what is he doing?' Well, he's not in her life right now. It was hard to make stories around that... We just said, 'Well, if he's not around, he's not around.' Let's just deal with the reality of what her life is now. Let's be true to that. When you breakup and you have closure."

Jay already hinted that his character was out during an interview with Angie Martinez months ago.

"I'm a little bit out of it," he had shared. "I'm not really... They've been filming for the last six or seven weeks or something like that."

"I don't know if there is a relationship," he noted, of his character and Issa's. "There was closure at the end. There was like, full closure."

"I don't know. I honestly, truly don't know," he also explained. "I might get a call tomorrow and they gonna be like, 'Ay, can you come do this?' And I'll be like, 'Yeah, I'll be there.'"

Nope.

They shootin'. Season 3. #InsecureHBO

Fans have been sharing some mixed reactions to the official confirmation that Lawrence will not be returning (at least for the time being).


Anyone else counting down the seconds until the series comes back?
