FX announced that it will renew Donald Glover’s critically acclaimed TV show, Atlanta, for a fourth season—effectively giving fans two more seasons to see if Earn, Paper Boi, Darius and Van will get their shit together...or not (my money is on “not!”).


According to Deadline, FX confirmed the renewal during its presentation at the Television Critics Association (TCA) summer press tour. In his announcement, President of FX Entertainment Eric Schrier called Atlanta “clearly one of the best shows on television.”

“This group of collaborators and cast have created one of the most original, innovative stories of this generation and we are proud to be their partners,” Schrier said. The show has won five Emmys in two seasons, as well as two Golden Globes, and NAACP and Critics’ Choice awards.

Production for the third and fourth seasons will begin in Spring 2020, meaning we’re still a ways out from picking up where we left off at the end of “Robbin’ Season,” with cousins Earn Marks (Glover) and Alfred “Paper Boi” Miles (Brian Tyree Henry) uncertain of what their professional (and personal) relationship may become. The third and fourth seasons are expected to span eight episodes each, meaning we have many more hours of Glover’s dad bod; Henry’s beautiful, expressive face; Lakeith Stanfield’s enigmatic goofiness; and Zazie Beetz’s...Zazie Beetziness to revel in yet.

I don’t know if it’s because of this show, but I certainly see almost all of the casts working consistently. Lots of gigs in prime time movies. Dopeness.
