Atlanta Season 3 Confirmed by FX

Earn and Paper Boi's tour is adding a few more stops: FX has renewed the Donald Glover comedy Atlanta for a third season, debuting in 2019, TVLine has learned. When the announcement was made official, FX Networks and FX Productions programming president Nick Grad released the following statement, praising the show's second season and expressing his excitement for what's to come for the third installment of the critically-acclaimed series.

Having debuted in September 2016 with its often off-kilter but poignant tales of cousins played by Henry and Glover and their experiences in the Georgia metropolis and its hip hop scene, Atlanta's first cycle won two Primetime Emmy Awards for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series and Outstanding Directing for a Comedy Series - both for Glover. Season 2, which was titled "Atlanta: Robbin' Season", now holds a 99% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes. He's joined in the series by Brian Tyree Henry, Lakeith Stanfield, and Zazie Beetz. The series is executive produced by Glover and his brother, Stephen, along with Paul Simms, Dianne McGunigle, and Hiro Murai.

Here's the even better news: Since Glover, the creative power behind the series, doesn't now have a Star Wars movie shoot on the books, Season 3 is expected to drop in 2019. As another non-surprise, the excellent Season 2 is well expected to be a strong contender this year in the TV Academy contest.

In addition to his music career, under which he performs as Childish Gambino, he also recently starred as Lando Calrissian in the latest Star Wars film Solo, and will be voicing Simba in the live-action remake of The Lion King.

The other stars of the show are also becoming mainstays in major film projects.
