Donald Glover's 'Atlanta' Receives Early Season 4 Renewal at FX
During today’s TCA panel, FX revealed its acclaimed series Atlanta had received an early season 4 renewal. The series had previously been renewed for a third season last summer but was delayed due to creator and star Donald Glover’s increasingly busy schedule.
“What more can be said about ‘Atlanta’ than the critical acclaim and accolades that Donald, Paul, Dianne, Stephen and Hiro have earned for two exceptional seasons of what is clearly one of the best shows on television,” said by Eric Schrier, President, FX Entertainment. “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.”
FX also confirmed that the third and fourth seasons will shoot back to back. Both seasons will run for eight episodes each.
Atlanta tells the story of cousins Earnest “Earn” Marks (Glover) and Alfred "Paper Boi" Miles (Brian Tyree Henry) as they try to navigate the Atlanta rap scene in hopes of bettering their lives and the lives of their families.
Glover created and stars in the series alongside Henry, Zazie Beetz, and Lakeith Stanfield. Glover and his brother, Stephen, executive produce with Paul Simms, Dianne McGunigle, and Hiro Murai. FX Productions produces.
Atlanta has won 5 Emmys out of 22 nominations over two seasons thus far.
