Damn, guess it really is over for Lawrence and Issa.

Issa Rae and Insecure showrunner Prentice Penny confirmed the news at this week’s Insecure Fest in Los Angeles that Jay Ellis‘ Lawrence character won’t be involved in season 3 of the hit show.

“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. You never see the exes again. And it’s okay! You gotta explore life without Lawrence,” Issa said.

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.” It seems closure is closure for these two … at least for now. 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.”

Season 3 of Insecure airs August 12th.
