Since season one of the break out series’ Atlanta hit in 2016, fans have been begging for a season two. Atlanta tells the story of Earn, played by Donald Glover who also serves as the showrunner and director, who has joined up with his rapper cousin to manage and produce him. The series was a break out hit, funny, inventive, and new. However a season two was up in the air due to the cast growing popularity.
Glover was tasked to star as Lando Calrissian in Solo: A Star Wars Story, making it difficult for himself to write the script. Brian Tyree Henry, who plays Paper Boy, Earn’s rapper Cousin, had a role in Sony’s Spider-Man: Into the Spider-verse. Then of course there is Zazie Beetz, who plays Earn’s girlfriend, was busy filming a little film called Deadpool 2. So obviously it was difficult to get the series’ sophomore season up and running. However, it looks like we are a go.
Atlanta Season 2 will hit FX on Thursday, March 1st at 10pm ET/PT. Which is not far away. Looks like Glover got right to work as soon as he wrapped on Solo. However we also learned that there will be a title change. It won’t just be Season 2 of Atlanta, it will be known as, Atlanta Robbin’ Season.
