FX renewed the hit series Atlanta for a third season on Thursday (June 7), according to The Hollywood Reporter.
“Atlanta is phenomenal, achieving and exceeding what few television series have done,” FX Networks and FX Productions programming president Nick Grad said while making the announcement. “With Atlanta Robbin’ Season, Donald and his collaborators elevated the series to even greater heights, building on the enormous success of their award-winning first season.
“We’re grateful to the producers and our extraordinary cast and crew for achieving this level of excellence, and we share the excitement with our audience about the third season knowing they will continue to take us to unexpected and thrilling places.”
Created by Donald Glover — also known as Childish Gambino — the dramedy revolves around rapper Paper Boi and his manager cousin Earnest “Earn” Marks (played by Glover), and has already earned the network two Emmy Awards, two Golden Globes and a Peabody Award.
The inaugural season premiered in September 2016 and its follow-up, Atlanta: Robbin’ Season, debuted earlier this year and wrapped up last month.
Season 3 is expected to arrive in 2019.
