Find out why the Golden Globe winner, Donald Glover’s Atlanta Season 2 won’t return to FX until 2018…
Donald Glover is one of the stars in the upcoming Han Solo solo film, so he will not have time to shoot Atlanta season 2 until late 2017/early 2018. The Community alum is filling the role of Lando Calrissian in the untitled Young Han Solo movie, directed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller. Filming for YHS doesn’t get underway until next month, it’s expected to last for quite some time.
Meanwhile, Glover has already assembled his writers room to work on story ideas and scripts for the second season. There’s no way he’d be able to squeeze in production of Atlanta Season 2 this summer in time for a fall or winter premiere.
FX announced today that Atlanta Season 2 will premiere sometime in 2018. An exact date is unknown, so it could be spring or as late as fall or winter. We’ll put our money on fall or winter 2018. In addition, FX also announced that it’s entered into an overall deal with the multitalented artist. Glover will develop other TV series for FX Networks and other networks and streaming services. All this will be in addition to his executive producer, writer, director, and star of Atlanta.
In its first season, Glover and his team were unafraid to take risks that most shows wouldn’t attempt until Season 2 or 3. We can expect a great worth while season in 2018.
The cool thing is Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian in the YHS movie
That is what it’s all about though, wearing multiple hats when making movies, series and videos. Entertainment life is hard work, so don’t get it twisted.
