While talking about her role in season 3 of Titans with TV Insider in 2021, she said, "I must say the writers this season did me good. You're going to be able to watch Blackfire really get the opportunity to play. Each episode has a different part of her as well, which is a privilege as an actor."

In October 2021, HBO Max renewed the Titans for the fourth season, which is expected to release in 2022. While the show's season finale made it look like she would leave, it is still unsure if she would return as Blackfire/Komand'r.

"I've never dated Prince. I was just his dancer and his muse, and he was one of my best friends." She said. "I really hope that people don't listen to all the crazy stuff that's going on. Really, truly understand that this man was private. Respect his privacy."
