THE WORD | Insecure will not make a return until 2020.

Issa Rae’s hit series Insecure will not make a return until 2020.

Vulture reports Insecure will not be returning until 2020 because Issa Rae has become very busy and is in high demand. HBO programming chief Casey Bloys revealed the details, stating: “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.

Issa Rae is currently starring alongside Regina Hall and Marsai Martin in Little, which just made it to theaters.
