Sorry, Lawrence Hive! Creator and star in HBO’s hit series, Insecure, Issa Rae confirms Lawrence (Jay Ellis) won’t be returning for season 3.

Rae stood by her decision to cut her fictional ex out of the picture at Insecure Fest saying, ““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 Daniel, sometimes we have those conversations,” Rae says. “You never see the exes again. And it’s okay! You gotta explore life without Lawrence.”

It’s been a long time. #InsecureHBO returns for Season 3 August 12 on @HBO.

Fans watched as Issa and Lawrence said their goodbyes to each other in the season 2 finale as Issa began moving on with her new love interest, Daniel, and from the looks of the trailer, it seems Lawrence was gone for good from Issa’s story.

Why the absence? Show-runner Prentice Penny told fans at the festival, “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,” Penny said. Do you see? He’s not in her life right now. RIGHT NOW. Now. Now? Maybe later? “We just said, well, if he’s not around, he’s not around,” Penny said. “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.”

So, Lawrence Hive there may be a chance for his reappearance in the future; but, for now we’ll just have to be okay with watching Issa’s Lawrence-less love life.
