“Atlanta seasons 3 and 4 are going to be some of the best television ever made. Only The Sopranos could be compared”, declared Donald Glover at the end of 2020. The creator and protagonist of the prestigious FX series tried to show off his energies at a particularly precarious moment for production.
Released in 2016, the good reviews of its second season had led to the announcement of a third and fourth in June 2018, but two years later it still seemed a long way to go before we had new episodes. The reason was that Glover had planned to shoot his series in 2020 so that it would see the light in January 2021 and then the coronavirus pandemic occurred.
Atlanta has not been able to return to filming until recently, taking place in various European locations such as London, Amsterdam, or Paris. Starring Glover himself in the company of Brian Tyree Henry, Zazie Beetz, and Lakeith Stanfield.
The FX fiction seeks to give continuity to the misadventures of Earn and Alfred (played by the artist also known as Childish Gambino and Tyree Henry), and recently was able to show a picture of the team’s return to set. However, no matter how much of a hurry Glover and his people are taking, it seems unlikely that Atlanta will be able to return until next year.
The same interpreter has pointed this out in audio collected by Twitter. Everything indicates that Atlanta will not broadcast its third season until early 2022. Not much is known about the fourth season, although Glover has claimed to be working on a “trilogy of films” about which he has not given more details. The Atlanta protagonist, who has forged a prolific career in audiovisuals with titles such as Community, Guava Island, or Han Solo: A Star Wars Story (which would lead to a series about Lando Calrissian starring himself) also has to intervene in an upcoming series of Mr. and Mrs. Smith alongside Phoebe Waller-Bridge.
