The critically acclaimed FX comedy-drama series Atlanta will return for Season 3 in the spring of 2022. It’s been three years since Season 2 ended, and there were further delays because of the Covid-19 pandemic. Donald Glover released a mystifying Season 3 trailer last Halloween showing Paper Boi (played by Brian Tyree Henry) wearing a shirt with “FAKE” on it. The series stars Donald Glover, LaKeith Stanfield, and Brian Tyree Henry. Glover plays Earn and Stanfield plays Darius. The third and fourth seasons were written and filmed together. Donald Glover created the series and is an executive producer of the FX comedy-drama series. Stephen Glover, Hiro Murai, Stefani Robinson, Paul Simms, and Dianne McGunigle are also executive producers. Fans will look forward to what other shenanigans LaKeith Stanfield and Donald Glover’s characters will get into for these upcoming seasons.
Donald Glover and LaKeith Stanfield Back Together Again for Season 3 of Atlanta
This award-winning FX comedy-drama series gained attention right away. The series has been one of many projects from Stanfield that have catapulted his career. Donald Glover, who previously went by the moniker Childish Gambino, already had a successful acting career (Community), writer (30 Rock), and musician. Atlanta has only added to his accolades. LaKeith Stanfield and Donald Glover make an odd, but entertaining pair in Atlanta, and Season 3 should be no exception. What is Paper Boi up to and will it be dangerous? Will Earn make safe choices so he can still be there for his daughter? The long-awaited Season 3 of Atlanta will surely surprise and captivate audiences as it’s done the past two seasons.
Eric Schrier, President of FX Entertainment commented on the upcoming seasons of Atlanta saying, “Once again, Donald Glover, the producers and stellar cast have delivered another signature season synonymous with the excellence that makes Atlanta so great.”
Season 3 of Atlanta premieres on Thursday, March 24 at 10 PM ET on FX, and for the first time, in-season streaming will be available on Hulu.
