FX’s hit comedy series was produced in the capital of Georgia by actor and comedian Donald Glover to investigate the ups and downs of two cousins. Only in Atlanta, Glover plays Earn, a talented Princeton dropout while Alfred, Brian Tyree Henry, is playing his cousin-a rising hip-hop star, known as Paper Boi. Each struggle with banking, corporate defeats, and bigotry.
The “Robbin Season” slogan ends with a stunning climax in the Atlanta 2 final. Earn forgets to remove a pistol from his backpack before he leaves the US for a European tour. He’s afraid to lose his management work, so he’s making a calculated pass. He drops the weapon into a bag belonging to rapper Clark County. When on the flight, Earn discovers that the pistol was inserted into Clark’s boss Luke’s bag. Paper Boi tells Earn he knows what, and why, he did.
FX renewed Atlanta in June 2018 for Season 3, one month after Atlanta Season 2, a standard time-frame for returning TV shows. For Atlanta, FX grants Glover and the artistic business control, making production more exclusive than other TV shows. To make the ball happen in upcoming seasons, however, in August 2019, FX also agreed to commission Atlanta season 4.
In January, Landgraf said season 3 was tentatively scheduled to open in January 2021, with season 4 potentially hitting the shortest season gap to date before the end of the same year. The ongoing Coronavirus pandemic can, however, prevent this as expected.
The cast of season 4 will include:
- Donald Glover as Earnest “Earn” Marks
- Brian Tyree Henry as Alfred “Paper Boi” Miles
- Lakeith Stanfield as Darius Epps
- Zazie Beetz as Vanessa “Van” Keefer
At this point, Atlanta fans should expect the 3-story of the season to take place during the European tour of Earn and Paper Boi. Based on the final of Atlanta season 2, Earn is becoming more decisive in his personal and professional life, while fear lies inside his mind.
The airport debacle in Season 2 highlights the fact that Earn must simply “play the game,” but the random choices of the character can be of negative long-term consequences. Earn’s mother, Van, and her daughter Lottie tell his realistic decisions but still have to choose what sort of person he wants to be-first a father or cynical corporate insider who manipulates the system to his advance
