Robbin’ Season may be over, but Atlanta isn’t.
FX has renewed Donald Glover’s surreal, Emmy-winning comedy for a third season, the network announced Thursday afternoon.
In season 2, which was subtitled “Robbin’ Season,” rapper Paper Boi (Brian Tyree Henry), his manager-cousin Earn (Glover), and their friend Darius (Lakeith Stanfield) continued climbing the city’s rap scene and dealing with the consequences of Paper Boi’s newfound fame. The season was met with critical acclaim and featured several standout episodes, including the unsettling hour “Teddy Perkins.”
“Atlanta is phenomenal, achieving and exceeding what few television series have done,” said FX president of original programming Nick Grad in a statement. “With Atlanta Robbin’ Season, Donald and his collaborators elevated the series to even greater heights, building on the enormous success of their award-winning first season. We’re grateful to the producers and our extraordinary cast and crew for achieving this level of excellence, and we share the excitement with our audience about the third season knowing they will continue to take us to unexpected and thrilling places.”
Atlanta, which also stars Zazie Beetz, is expected to return in 2018. Read our review of the excellent season finale.
