Because life isn't fair and Issa Rae is busy

HBO heads just announced the return of several of its biggest hits, but they're making us wait for some of them, as reported by Deadline. The good news is that Curb Your Enthusiasm, Westworld, and Insecure are all returning for their tenth, third, and fourth seasons, respectively. The bad news is that we won't get to see any of these premieres until 2020.

In an interview with Vulture, HBO's president of programming officer Casey Bloys said the reason for Insecure's delay is that the creator, star, and producer Issa Rae is booked and busy. "Issa became a big movie star!" he said, adding that often these things happen. "When you're in business with very creative and talented people, there's a lot more opportunities for people to do things," Bloys said. We already know that, in addition to Little, Rae is starring in two upcoming romance flicks. However, Bloys also implied that, in Rae's case, there's a chance that she wanted to take a break to come back to Insecure "fresh."

Following in the footsteps of shows like Game of Thrones, Netflix's The OA, and more recently FX's Atlanta, picking up where we left off has become something of a waiting game. So long are the days of consistent yearly programming series'. On the bright side, if they keep their word on this timeline, we'll have a nice distraction from what might be another disastrous presidential election.

Lights off

Neutrogena's Light Therapy Acne Mask and Activator—the one that's inspired many-a-selfie across the interwebs—is being recalled for potential eye damage. "Our decision to recall this product is being made out of an abundance of caution," Neutrogena shared in a recall statement on its website, adding that the product is still safe when used once a day, as directed. While the brand does acknowledge the potential damage to the eyes, Neutrogena insists that this is "rare, generally mild, and transient."

Because Pennywise, of course

Warner Bros. Pictures just dropped the final trailer for It Chapter Two, and it's very bloody. Though it takes place decades after the events of the 2017 film, that doesn't mean that the "Losers" are free of Pennywise's horrors.

Was it worth it to see how you'd age?

If you've been on social media lately, you'll know that the latest craze is using an app called FaceApp to see what you'd look like as an old person. And, while the photos are pretty funny, they do come with the cost of your own privacy. FaceApp now has the access to names and photos of over 150 million people, according to Forbes, and it can pretty much do anything with this information.
