Issa Rae’s ‘Insecure’ Season Four Wont Be Back Until 2020

‘Insecure’ is taking a what feels like a very long hiatus.

In an interview with Vulture’s, HBO programming chief Casey Bloys confirmed that Insecure won’t be back for its fourth season until 2020 — because Issa Rae is booked and getting paid.

via Vulture:

“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.”

The network isn’t burning off Insecure, to be clear: It’s betting it’ll be just as strong, and potentially awards-worthy, when it returns to TV. “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.”

Dang ,ive been waiting for the new season. Such a Bummer

Issa Rae Engaged To Longtime Boyfriend

Issa Rae is engaged!

The actress will marry longtime boyfriend Louis Diame.

via People:

Rae’s Insecure costars Jay Ellis and Yvonne Orji confirmed the news while walking the red carpet at the 2019 NAACP Image Awards over the weekend.

“We’re very excited for her,” Orji told Entertainment Tonight ,with Ellis adding, “We all found out in different ways because we’re all on different text chains. We talk at different times, so we all found out at different times in different ways.”

Orji said she couldn’t be more excited for her on-screen best friend.

“The reaction was all the same, like, ‘You out here in these streets getting married, boo!?’ That was the reaction,”
she said.

Rae also attended the NAACP Image Awards, but she did not comment on her current relationship status. Her rep is not commenting.

And during her appearance on The View on Monday, she played coy when asked about her ring, saying, “I have a lot of rings on my fingers.”

Rumors of her engagement first began to swirl after she was spotted wearing a diamond ring on her recent Essence magazine cover.

Rae and Diame have largely kept their relationship out of the spotlight, though the businessman has accompanied the actress on several red carpets over the years.

Rae has said that she prefers to keep her personal life private.

“I get so much feedback about everything,” she told Marie Claire last year. “The one thing I don’t need feedback on is who I’m sleeping with.”

While speaking with Vogue, Rae expressed a similar sentiment, saying she isn’t interested in hearing fans “input” about her love life.

“I don’t want any input,” she said. “As a writer, you put everything on the table. I’ll take input on kids if I’m going to have kids. How do I not kill the kids? Work? Give me the input. Any other aspect of my life? Give me the input. But who I’m f*cking? No, I don’t need input. I’m good.”

Congrats Sis Issa!

Serving us 90’s Iconic Sitcom Vibes, Issa Rae Tells Us Why She’s ‘Fearful’ Of Failure

For her GQ cover story, the Insecure creator impersonated a few of our black TV faves, and she absolutely nailed it.

Issa Rae is out here living her best life, but she’s also realistic and scared of failure. 

During the interview, she discussed her career and when failure came up, she revealed she was still deathly afraid of it despite her successes. The 33-year-old asserted that failure is different for the face of a show than it would be for that of a writer or director

“The failure is yours,” Rae said. “It is yoursss-uh.”

When the interviewer asked her if she was still scared of failure since she’s successful, Rae seemed surprised that someone considered Insecure successful.

“That could go to s**t,” Rae said. “This could be the worst season we’ve ever had. And then what? Then people are all of a sudden like, ‘Oh, okay.’ Then the calls stop. It’s like stand-up comedy: In order to eventually succeed, you have to bomb. That’s what every comedian says—that’s when the fear goes away. And I feel like I’m still fearful because I haven’t publicly bombed yet, in terms of my career. Yeah, Insecure is successful now, but where’s my bomb coming? Where are my Will Smith bombs coming? Where, where is that happening?”

The writer tried to comfort her, but Issa responded with a quote that could have been in one of her scripts.

“He went through a period when he was depressed, when three or four of his movies in a row weren’t number one at the box office. So for him that was terrible,” she countered. “And now he’s talking about, ‘You gotta fail, you gotta fail.’ And I don’t want to make Instagram speeches about failing. I don’t.”
