With a baby in the mix, it’s clear that nothing can go back to how it was before. anytime soon. But, Ellis said, the upcoming season will tackle where Issa and Lawrence go next in their strained relationship, including Lawrence’s growing pains into fatherhood.
“It’s a journey,” said Ellis on the Bevy Smith’s Bevelations podcast. “You know, it’s a shocker because we just fell back in love, and we saw why, and we saw magic, and we saw that they’re soulmates. So you know, it’s a journey and we get to roll that out. That’s a real story that has happened to people that we know. So we get to roll that out and play with what that means. Like, is Issa gonna be a stepmom? Is she not down with it? Is Lawrence gonna be involved? Is he not gonna be involved? What does involvement look like?”
Ellis said that at the end of the last season, Issa said she would go with Lawrence to San Francisco, where Ellis is considering restarting his life.
“So it’s just one of those things where it’s like, where do you go from here?” he continued. “And how do you really put all those pieces back together after the mirror gets shattered?”
