FX will bring back its critically-acclaimed comedy series Atlanta back for a third season, the network said Thursday.
The Emmy Award-winning series, created by and starring Donald Glover, will return to the network in 2019. Atlanta is produced by FX Productions and is executive produced by Glover, Paul Simms, Dianne McGuingle, Stephen Glover and Hiro Murai.
“Atlanta is phenomenal, achieving and exceeding what few television series have done,” said FX Networks and FX Productions co-president Nick Grad in a statement. “With Atlanta Robbin’ Season, Donald and his collaborators elevated the series to even greater heights, building on the enormous success of their award-winning first season. We’re grateful to the producers and our extraordinary cast and crew for achieving this level of excellence, and we share the excitement with our audience about the third season knowing they will continue to take us to unexpected and thrilling places.”
