FX’s “Atlanta” is still set to return early 2022, but a release date is still not confirmed.
‘Atlanta’: FX Shares Update On Season 3 & 4—TCA https://t.co/zX6jVmXGFA
— Deadline Hollywood (@DEADLINE) August 13, 2021
According to Deadline, FX chairman John Landgraf says they “haven’t locked down the scheduling for Season 3 yet” because it just finished shooting in Europe. “It’s in post-production and it’s a lengthy post-production process, and part of that is because they’re currently in production of Season 4 in Atlanta,” he explained. “All the scripts for that season have been written, and I absolutely adore the scripts for both seasons.”
Landgraf continued, “The reason I can’t lock down a date right now is that it’s being driven by Donald Glover and Hiro Morai’s schedule and availability and the length of the post, both for Season 3 while in the process of producing Season 4. I did list it as one of the things coming back in the first half of 2022, that is our anticipation. I think we’ll be able to lock down an actual date for 3 and maybe for both cycles within the next couple of months.”
Atlanta first aired in 2016 with Glover, LaKeith Stanfield, Zazie Beetz, and Brian Tyree Henry. This show has earned several awards, including Emmys for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for Beetz, Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series, and Outstanding Directing for a Comedy Series for Glover, and nominations for Outstanding Comedy Series.
