Start getting ready to head back to Atlanta.
The FX comedy series appears to finally be starting up production on its long-delayed third season, as creator and star Donald Glover revealed in a photo posted to Instagram on Friday. "'Day 0' S3 ATL," the former Community star wrote, alongside a photo taken with his costars Brian Tyree Henry, LaKeith Stanfield, and Zazie Beetz.
Season 3 of Atlanta has been a long time coming (the season 2 finale aired almost three years ago, in May 2018), held up first by Glover's busy schedule and then by the COVID-19 pandemic, which forced FX to push back a planned January 2021 premiere date.
Despite the delays, reports that the new season will film in Europe indicate it will pick up right where season 2 left off, with Earn (Glover), Alfred (Henry), and Darius (Stanfield) bound for a European tour with with rising rapper Clark County.
Additionally, fans have a lot of Atlanta to look forward to: FX has already greenlit a fourth season, which is planned to be shot concurrently with the third.
No new premiere date for season 3 has been set.
