Happy Friday! Atlanta is coming back!
FX announced today on the TCA press tour that Atlanta is coming back on March 1st! Donald Glover’s examination of life and hustle in the Georgia capitol—now dubbed Atlanta Robbin’ Season for its second outing is just around the corner.
Donald Glover put Atlanta on hold in 2017 so he could go to a galaxy far, far away to play Lando Calrissian in Solo: A Star Wars Story. Before leaving to shoot the most mysterious Star Wars film, Glover assembled his writer’s room and got the scripts for Atlanta Season 2 ready to go, so when he wrapped Solo last fall, he could move right into production.
The first season of Atlanta was thrilling, surprising and unlike anything else on TV. Episode 7, “B.A.N.” was one of the best episodes of 2016 and one I’ve gone back to watch multiple times. Atlanta also won Best Directing and Best Actor in a Comedy series for Glover.
I can’t wait to see what he has up his sleeves for Atlanta Robbin’ Season.
