Welp! “Insecure” fans, we’ll be waiting until 2020 to get new episodes of the hit HBO series.
Let’s just say we’re hella sad. During an interview with Vulture’s Josef Adalian, HBO programming chief Casey Bloys revealed that “Insecure” won’t be airing the fourth season until 2020. Why? Because Issa Rae, the show’s creator, has been jam-packed with other projects.
“Well, Issa became a big movie star!” Bloys said of the actress, who’s currently starring in Little alongside Regina Hall and Marsai Martin. “We’re not the first place to deal with this, but when you’re in business with very creative and talented people, there’s a lot more opportunities for people to do things. Issa, I think, partly wanted a break to come back to it fresh.”
However, Bloys says HBO won’t be dropping the comedy series, instead the network is looking forward to it coming back better than ever. “It wasn’t exactly random that we ended up [scheduling the show] in the spring, right before Emmys,” Bloys promised, “so that the show should get the Emmy love that it has deserved.”
