FX announced during the Television Critics Association press tour that Atlanta’s new season is set to return to FX in 2021. Fans will not get just one season but two seasons. FX chairman, John Langraf, says season 3 and 4 will consist of 18 episodes. Most of the season will be filmed in Atlanta and the other scenes will take place outside of the U.S.
The series’ delay is due to Donald Glover’s busy schedule. Aside from Atlanta, Glover was the voice of Simba in the Lion King remake, headlined Coachella, and made music last year.
