It was a sad day for Insecure fans when the show ended in 2021, but Jay Ellis, who starred as Lawrence in the series, isn’t shutting the door on a reboot.

While speaking with E! News, the Top Gun: Maverick actor shared that he would “one hundred percent” return to the role.

“When the time is right, if I’m asked back,” Ellis said. 

“One hundred percent. I think with a little bit of time,” he added. “These characters, we saw a lot of life. We saw a lot of growth. I think they need to live a little bit.”

Although Ellis is on board, a big part of whether or not the comedy-drama will actually make a return lies in the hands of creator and series star Issa Rae

“You gotta ask Issa, man. She can give you that answer,” he explains. “If I tell you yes, then she’s going to call me tomorrow and I’m going to be in a lot of trouble.”

Insecure ran for five season on HBO from 2016 until 2021.
