Since season two came to an end in mid-2018, fans have waited patiently for more of FX’s hit show ‘Atlanta’ starring Donald Glover.
During the winter TCA press tour, FX Networks Chairman John Landgraf spoke about the series and revealed that he wasn’t certain when the show would start up production for its upcoming season due to the busy schedules of its cast, Deadline reports.
Season three and Season 4 both were initially supposed to begin production in Spring of this year. However, the series is being delayed for an indefinite time period.
The good news for fans is, according to Deadline, Landgraf did share that “things went well in the writers’ room.” Apparently, things went so well, that Glover requested an additional two episodes for season three, bringing the season to a total of 10 episodes to which the network “gladly” agreed to.
However, at this time, season four will still consist of the regular eight-episode order the series produces each season.
“We’ll shoot them all in sequence,” Landgraf said.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
As of right now, the plan is for the show’s third season to premiere in Jan. 2021, with season four to follow later that year in the fall, Deadline reveals.
“I can’t tell you how excited I am to do two more (seasons),” said Landgraf.
Furthermore, Landgraf was also asked if ‘Atlanta’ would continue after season four concluded to which he responded, “As long as (Glover) wants to do more ‘Atlanta,’ we will do more ‘Atlanta.’”
