Where’s Lawrence? This Is Why Jay Ellis Will NOT Be Returning to Insecure

Good news: Insecure Season 3 debuts in a few weeks! Bad news (for #TeamLawrence): Lawrence, played by actor Jay Ellis, will not be a part of the show’s third season.

Fans of the hit HBO series were thrilled when the Season 3 trailer was released online a few weeks ago, but when it got to the end, one question was on the minds of many: Where the heck is Lawrence?

Well, according to Insecure showrunner Prentice Penny and lead actress Issa Rae herself, Jay Ellis’ character was completely written out of the show so that they could “stay as true to life as possible.”

Issa explained during the third annual Insecure Fest in L.A. last weekend:

“We want to stay as true to life as possible. They had a great conversation at the end of season two and it was just about like, hey, she’s moving on with Daniel [Y’Lan Noel], sometimes we have those conversations. You never see the exes again. And it’s okay! You gotta explore life without Lawrence.”

Penny added:

“At the end of the day, we’re always trying to tell stories that are true and authentic. We were in the writers’ room and we were initially talking about, Okay, well what is he doing?… Well, he’s not in her life right now. It was hard to make stories around that.

“We just said, well, if he’s not around, he’s not around. Let’s just deal with the reality of what her life is now. Let’s be true to that, when you breakup and you have closure.”

More via Vulture:

Like it or not, it seems Lawrence’s exit will make way for new potential suitors in Issa’s life. “It was also like, well where is Issa in her life right now? What would challenge that? And you’ll see lots of people who are her love interest kind of come in and out,” Penny teases.

And there won’t just be one new guy, but a few. “Or guys?… Guys! Maybe. I think people will be rooting for her like they kind of always do, to make the right choice.”

So, there you have it, folks. Lawrence will NOT be a part of Insecure Season 3, but that doesn’t mean that he won’t be written back into the show in future seasons. #LawrenceHive, keep hope alive!

Insecure Season 3 will premiere on HBO on Sunday, August 12th at 10:30 p.m. EST. Watch the trailer below:

Wayment. Did “Dro” and “Tasha” From “Insecure” Just Have a Baby Together?!

Earlier this week, the internet whipped out their Sherlock Holmes magnifying glasses to try and figure out the answer to one burning question: Did “Dro” and “Tasha” from Insecure Just have a baby together?!

Facts: Dominique Perry, who plays Tasha on the hit HBO series Insecure, just gave birth to a healthy, beautiful baby girl. She posted a photo of her daughter, Zen, on Instagram.

Also facts: Fellow Insecure actor Sarunas J. Jackson, who plays Dro on the series, posted another black-and-white photo of a healthy, beautiful baby girl on Instagram Tuesday morning with the caption “NWTS,” referencing Drake’s 2013 album Nothing Was the Same. Social media sleuths immediately noticed the similarities of the photos, despite them being from different angles.

Even more facts: Dominique deleted her photo, essentially confirming that, yup, that’s Sarunas’ baby.

So now that those facts are out of the way, let’s get into the drama.

While fans of the show sent their congratulations to Perry and Jackson on social media, Jackson’s girlfriend, Kaylen Zahara, wrote on social media that she found out about her boyfriend’s new baby online with the rest of world. She posted a video on Instagram talking about how she’s “dodging f**kboy after f**kboy” and even made an “insecure” reference (LOL).

“Ladies, listen to your intuition! These dudes will be in your crib, eating your food & laying up with you, taking you on dates, etc but got kids on the way without you knowing,” she wrote. “These insecure men can never keep it 100. Congrats tho.”

A few hours later, Zahara followed that posts up by saying that she and Jackson were “great friends” and had “cleared the air.”

“I found out with the rest of the world so I ran with my feelings,” she wrote in a response to a commenter. “Sarunas and I are great friends and we’ve cleared the air! No foul play or games were played. He’s going to be an amazing father & we are going to continue to be close friends!”

So, despite their lack of confirmation, it looks like Dominique Perry (“Tasha”) and Sarunas J. Jackson (“Dro”) definitely had a baby together. Meanwhile, The Shade Room says they’ve confirmed “from a reliable source” that Jackson is the father of Perry’s daughter Zen.

So, there you have it, folks! Insecure’s TV drama done spilled on over into real life.
