The postponment was a result of the various projects that took both Issa Rae and Natasha Rothwell away from the writer’s room.

Since the last season, Rothwell has been attached to several projects including “Star vs. The Forces of Evil,” “DuckTales,” Limited Partners, Sonic the Hedgehog, Wonder Woman 1984, and Wyrm.
