Atlanta season 3 will premiere soon after Robbin’ season ends. When do you think it’ll be time? Actually, we just discovered it! Also, FX’s president talks about the upcoming season (and the one after that) as if they’re already established items he enjoys.
Atlanta, Donald Glover’s much-loved and highly acclaimed show, is returning. They’re also no longer in Atlanta, as you might have guessed. To begin Oh, and Glover is ecstatic about his next season, tweeting (since deleted):
“While I’m here: ‘Atlanta’ s3+s4 are going to be some of the finest television ever created… Sopranos are the only ones who can touch us.”
Release Date for Atlanta Season 3
Atlanta season 3 is set to premiere on March 24th, according to Deadline. The show’s first two episodes will premiere that evening and will be available on Hulu the next day.
Atlanta Season 3 is “listed as one of the things that will be returning in the first half of 2022 so that, that is our anticipation and I think we’ll be able to nail down an actual date, certainly for three, maybe for both cycles rather soon,” FX president John Landgraf told Collider.
The executive praised the screenplays for Atlanta seasons 3 and 4 (particularly, “I truly like those writings,”) and stated that the delay of a season 3 release date is due to work on season 4’s development, which is presently underway.
Teaser Trailers for Atlanta Season 3
The next Atlanta season 3 teaser trailer will premiere on December 25, during the NBA’s Christmas Day games. The song “It’s After The End Of The World” by Sun Ra plays over this Atlanta season 3 teaser with no dialogue.
We don’t see Earn in the teaser, but we do see Al/Paper Boi, who is clad in a neon yellow sweatshirt with the word “FAKE” on it. He’s seated at a table, appearing completely befuddled. Others in the room have their gazes fixed on the walls.
Atlanta Season 3 Cast
Zazie Beetz (as Vanessa Keefer), got confirmation of the obvious in an Instagram post of the four (or at least four pixelated people who look a lot like them) on set in April 2021, when production began.
Of course, we expect additional names to be disclosed or announced, but nothing has been confirmed yet.
Atlanta Season 3 Is Currently in Production
Atlanta season 3 filming began in April 2021, as previously said. The episode was filmed in Europe, as evidenced by Donald Glover’s Instagram photos, such as the one below, which looks to be taken at Café Brandon in Amsterdam.
Earn, Al, and Darius were last seen on their way to that area of the world since Paper boi was scheduled to perform on Clark County’s European tour, so this change of scenery makes sense.
Season 3 of Atlanta’s Tale
And then there’s this European tour. Season 3 of Atlanta may see a resurgence of tensions, since the main issue was whether Al would fire Earn as his manager, given their tumultuous relationship.
Earn won Al’s respect at the airport TSA check by removing the pistol from his suitcase and placing it in Clark County’s. Later on the plane, Al expressed his thanks and admiration for Earn, emphasizing that he had seen everything and that earn is the perfect sort of manager.
Then they spotted Clark on the plane, who said that the gun was his manager’s fault. “Wish that was mine,” Clark says as he walks away, before screaming, “yoo-hoo!” Earn explains that he, not the manager, placed it in Clark’s bag.
Earn and Van, on the other hand? That’s a new kind of reset. They learned that Lottie, their little daughter, is talented during the parent-teacher conference. Her instructor also wants her to attend a prestigious school.
Earn agrees to pay for this school with his money from working for Al, but despite all of this wonderful news, his relationship with Van is at a crossroads.
She’s considering moving Lottie home with her mother, so the “happy two-parent family” that Lottie’s teacher described may not be available when Earn and the boys return from Europe.
