I really loved the show and have been waiting for the next season. Inspirational show and pretty clean for a change, just think the timing was wrong. Please keep this one.
This show was so inspiring for love, black love, writers, creativity, and just being able to love in your way. I wish it wasn’t cancelled following allegations of abuse from one of the producers. The cast was amazing! Hopefully we can get something like this back!
I love this show Love Is….. please, please please bring the show back in 2019.
I just read about the renewal of Love Is ____! I am beyond excited and happy all riled up into one! This is such a great, inspiring, thought provoking, “take a look at myself” series! Thank you!
