Season 3 of Donald Glover's 'Atlanta' Has Been Announced

By Kiani Shabazz

The wait is finally over. After a three-year hiatus, Donald Glover’s award-winning dark-comedy series Atlanta will return for its third season on March 24 on FX with a two-episode premiere and will stream the next day on Hulu. The new season will be teased with a new trailer during ESPN and ABC’s NBA games on Christmas Day. 

The third season will feature 10 episodes and marks the first time Atlanta will be available weekly for in-season streaming on Hulu. 

“We are thrilled to have Atlanta back with a new season on March 24th,” said Eric Schrier, President, FX Entertainment. “Once again, Donald Glover, the producers, and stellar cast have delivered another signature season synonymous with the excellence that makes Atlanta so great.”

This season is a bit of a curveball as it takes place entirely in Europe, finding Earn (Donald Glover), Alfred  Paper Boi (Bryan Tyree Henry), Darius ( LaKieth Stanfield), and Van  (Zazie Beetz) in the middle of a successful international tour, as the group navigates their newfound fame. 

Atlanta, produced by FX Productions, is executive produced by Donald Glover, Stephen Glover, Hiro Murai, Stefani Robinson, Paul Simms, and Dianne McGunigle.
