Two cousins, with different views on art versus commerce, on their way up through the Atlanta rap scene; Earnest "Earn" Marks, an ambitious college drop-out and his estranged cousin, who suddenly becomes a star.
FX announced today that Atlanta has been renewed for a second season. The freshman comedy, which premiered earlier this month, has been well-received by both audiences and critics through its first three episodes.
Created by comedian and musician Donald Glover, who also stars in the series, Atlanta follows two cash-strapped cousins trying to better their lives by making a living in the city's hip hop scene. The show's September 6th debut drew basic cable's best ratings among adults 18-49 for a scripted comedy premiere in three years.
FX has ordered 10 new episodes for Season 2 of Atlanta, which matches its first-season count.
