With the Insecure Season 3 premiere right around the corner (August 12), fans of the show have a lot to celebrate — unless they’re part of the Lawrence Hive.
“We want to stay as true to life as possible,” she said to Vulture. “They had a great conversation at the end of season two and it was just about like, hey, she’s moving on Daniel [sic], sometimes we have those conversations. You never see the exes again. And it’s okay! You gotta explore life without Lawrence.”
But it’s not okay for fans who love Lawrence. A few even got up the gumption to create a petition to get the show to include Lawrence in the new season. When Issa caught wind of it, we couldn’t tell if she was impressed or annoyed by the effort. Either way, it received her attention.
So far, the petition has more than 9,000 signatures. But it’s not just a petition on, say, Change.org to share dismay. There’s actually a whole website called WheresLawrence.com. On it, the creators share their disappointment over the news that Lawrence may be seen a lot less, if at all.
“Jay Ellis’ Lawrence might not come back for another season of Insecure. Not cool!” reads the site’s “Looking For Answers” page. “Not only because Jay Ellis has a huge and devoted fan base — but because Lawrence is an awesome complex character that we want to see more of. It’s time to get LOUD to bring him back! Sign and SHARE this petition to tell HBO to bring Lawrence back to Insecure!“
