Viewers will be getting more Lawrence when Insecure returns.

Jay Ellis revealed he’ll reprise his role as Lawrence on the fourth season of the HBO series, and he’s set to direct an episode.

Ellis posted a card from a table read listing him as “Lawrence” and a picture of the script saying he’s the director of episode 7. He added a playful caption suggesting he’s a pain to work with as an actor.

“Me: Action! Me: …I forgot my line. Me: CUT!… F–king actors!!!” he captioned the photo.

Ellis didn’t share any other information about his role, and he crossed out a key detail on the script.

After Lawrence and Issa broke up, the actor was absent for most of season 3. But the #LawrenceHive can rest assured, he’ll be back for at least one episode of the new season.

Star and producer Issa Rae announced last month that filming had started on season 4. So far, there’s no word on a premiere date.
