Donald Glover Gives Brief Update About Atlanta Seasons 3 And 4

Seasons 3 and 4 are apparently going to be very good. But will they be "Teddy Perkins" good?


It's been a while since we've had new episodes of FX's Atlanta, with Season 2 coming to an end in May 2018. However, series creator and star Donald Glover has a little bit of news about the upcoming Season 3 and 4.

Over on Twitter, Glover announced announced that the upcoming seasons will be great. How great? Well, here's what Glover said.

While that may seem like an outlandish statement, Atlanta's Season 2 episode "Teddy Perkins" is easily the best single episode of any TV series from that year, so hitting the "Sopranos mark" doesn't seem like a far-fetched idea by any means. GameSpot named that episode the #1 Best TV Episode of 2018 and the series as a whole one of the Best TV Shows of 2018.

The release date for Season 3 is still unknown. Originally, it was going to release January 2021, but considering the global pandemic in 2020, the show has been pushed back. Back in September, FX President John Landgraf spoke about the upcoming seasons: "One of the things that's been kind of an unexpected boon from COVID-19 was that writers have had a lot of time to write," Landgraf said (via TV Guide). "Donald Glover and his intrepid team of partners have written everything for Season 3 and 4."

As it stands, Atlanta Season 3 will arrive on FX the first half of 2021.
