In an interview with Vulture’s Josef Adalian, HBO programming chief Casey Bloys confirmed that Insecure won’t be back for its fourth season until 2020, mostly because its star and creator Issa Rae has been booked and busy.
“Well, Issa became a big movie star!” Bloys said of the actress, who’s currently starring in Littlealongside 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 are a lot more opportunities for people to do things. Issa, I think, partly wanted a break to come back to it fresh.”
Bloys assured viewers Rae's busy schedule has not led HBO to shelve Insecurepermanently, but they know that Rae will need a break before committing herself to the series. Bloys thinks this brief departure will allow award shows to give Insecure the recognition it deserves.
"It wasn’t exactly random that we ended up [scheduling the show] in the spring, right before Emmys," Bloys said. "So that the show should get the Emmy love that it has deserved."
