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 fourth season. The pickup is an early one, as the comedy has yet to air its third season. Speaking of Season 3, which was ordered over a year ago, the cable network stated today that production on both upcoming seasons will begin next spring.
The series premiered in 2016 with a 10-episode run that went on to win numerous awards, including two Emmys and two Golden Globes, including one for Best Television Series - Musical or Comedy. Season 2 returned in 2018 with 11 episodes under the title Atlanta: Robbin' Season, with many hailing it as even better than the first.
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.
