Watch: Atlanta’s 2nd-Season Trailer Is Finally Here

Save for Oprah’s show-stealing speech, the Golden Globes were, for the most part, awash in white people in black dresses.

Which is why we’re extra grateful that, toward the end of Hollywood’s first major award show of the season, we were blessed with a teaser from season 2 of FX’s Atlanta.


It’s a whole entire (dark-ass) mood.

The second season, which was announced by FX on Friday, has been titled “Robbin’ Season.” The teaser features a string of scenes featuring the cast—edited together so it seems as though the camera panned through one continuous shot.

The first scene is hard to detect, but you can see a gun being brandished in the right corner of the screen. Next, you see the Atlanta crew—Earn (Donald Glover), Van (Zazie Beetz), Darius (Lakeith Stanfield) and Paper Boi (Brian Tyree Henry)—gathered around a diner table. That’s followed by a scene at a strip club with the squad sitting in front of a table papered in bills. The final image shows Earn and Paper Boi on the top of a parked car with Darius inexplicably pushing a lawn mower as a gator inches its way toward them.


The teaser is moody and mysterious, revealing little about the plot points or arc of the season. It’s safe to say there will be a robbery, and the squad could find themselves flush with cash. Also, let’s hope Zazie didn’t turn into a gator.

As Complex reports, the new Atlanta season premieres March 1. Prayers up that a certain asshat in the White House can stop tweeting about his button until then.
