Damn, Earn. Atlanta’s 2nd Season Won’t Air Until 2018

So apparently this little Star Wars movie that Donald Glover is set to appear in is more important than FX’s Atlanta—because we’re not getting a second season until 2018. Sure, it may be a big deal that Glover is reprising the role that ol’ Colt 45-drinking-ass Billy D. Williams made famous, but why must fans of Atlanta suffer?


According to Deadline, because of Glover’s role as Lando Calrissian in the new Han Solo movie, he’s just too busy for Atlanta. But don’t fret, once he’s back to work, he’s going to be cooking up more Gloverisms for everyone. Glover inked an overall production deal with FX, and he’s going to develop a new series as well.

At last week’s Golden Globe Awards, Atlanta nabbed the award for Best Television Series—Musical or Comedy, and Glover won Best Actor—Television Series Musical or Comedy. But what’s even more important than that was the fact that he introduced a whole bunch of people to Migos.


Rain drop.

Drop top.

Bye, Kinja! It's been fun (occasionally).

As a black Star Wars fan who idolized Lando, this is okay with me. At least we’ll have Insecure’s second season in 2017.
