Sad AF: ‘Insecure’ Will Not Return To HBO Until 2020
Millenial Black people, we are sorry to inform you that you won’t be getting your spring/summer dose of ‘Insecure’ this year. Sadly, the show has been delayed for a year–but happily, it’s for a good reason! Our girl Issa is working! The ingenue is so booked, blessed and busy, that HBO had to adjust their programming schedule to accommodate her moves, Vulture reports.
HBO programming chief Casey Bloys said of the season delay, “Well, Issa became a big movie star!
“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,” Bloys added.
But the HBO exec isn’t worried about the timing, he believes the show’s launch in 20/20 will perfectly position the hit series for some serious award recognition.
“It wasn’t exactly random that we ended up [scheduling the show] in the spring, right before Emmys,” Bloys explained, “so that the show should get the Emmy love that it has deserved.”
And we want Issa Rae’s TV baby to get all the praise and adoration it needs to keep growing. HBO heads aren’t giving any details on the season ahead quite yet, but we can expect to see Issa, Molly, and the rest of the gang living out their confusing and relatable af lives soon enough.
Off the little screen, Issa is making serious moves in Hollywood, starring in “Little” with Regina Hall and Marsai Martin, the youngest executive Hollywood producer in history.
The film debuted its opening weekend #2 in the box office, garnering almost $15 million in ticket sales.
