‘Atlanta’ Renewed for Season 4 at FX

Atlanta” has been renewed for a fourth season at FX before production has begun on the previously announced Season 3.

FX made the announcement Tuesday at the Television Critics Association summer press  tour. Production on Seasons 3 and 4 is slated to begin in the spring. Both seasons will consist of eight episodes.

Donald Glover created the series and stars along with Brian Tyree Henry, Zazie Beetz, and Lakeith Stanfield. The series is executive produced by Glover and his brother, Stephen, along with Paul Simms, Dianne McGunigle, and Hiro Murai. FX Productions produces.

“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 Eric Schrier, president of 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.”

Given the production start date, Season 3 will likely bow in late 2019 or early 2020, in keeping with the gap between the first two seasons. The first season debuted in September 2016 while the second season did not debut until March 2018.

Glover has found himself increasingly in demand on various projects in the past few years, including his role in the recent “Lion King” remake. He also has his music career under the alias Childish Gambino. Beetz, Henry, and Stanfield have also been increasingly active with movie roles since the show launched.

Season 1 of “Atlanta” was nominated for six Emmy Awards, winning two: outstanding lead actor in a comedy series and outstanding directing for a comedy series, with both awards going to Glover. The series has won five Emmys out of 22 nominations over two seasons thus far.
