Atlanta Season 2 Delayed

Atlanta Season 2 Delayed Until 2018

Donald Glover‘s return to Atlanta is being postponed.

The second season of FX’s Golden Globe-winning comedy won’t premiere until 2018 “due to [Glover’s] production schedule,” the network announced Thursday at the Television Critics Association winter press tour. (He’s set to appear in the upcoming Star Wars movie about young Han Solo, currently in pre-production.)

In addition to Atlanta winning Best Comedy Series at Sunday’s Globes, Glover was also recognized individually as the Best Actor in a Comedy Series.

“I grew up in a house where magic wasn’t allowed, so everybody in here is magical to me,” Glover told his fellow Globe attendees while accepting his award. Every time I saw a movie … I realized that magic is from people. We’re the ones who kind of, in a weird way, lie to children so they do stuff they never thought was possible. … I want to say thank you to my son and the mother of my son for making me believe in people again.”

Re-watch Glover’s acceptance speech below, then drop a comment: Atlanta fans, how will you cope until 2018?

      Obviously. Stuff like black Justin Bieber, the fake commercials, and the invisible car certainly weren’t done for dramatic effect.

        Just thinking about the invisible car has me laughing. The boy in mime paint was crazy also. The Van episode as a whole was bananas.

  4. Joey Padron says:

    Donald filming the Han Solo movie is a good reason to delay season 2 of Atlanta. Hope season 2 will premiere in early 2018.

  5. Alexa says:

    Not the best news but would happily give Donald and Co. all the time they needed.

  6. Alec says:

    Terrible have to wait so much.

  7. Banks says:

    Who didnt see this coming

  8. Better release that paperboi album in the meanwhile! Donald has obviously a lot on his plate with the film career blowing up, tv and music to boot. Plus he’s recently had a kid. I’m well chuffed for him. Dude creates awesome stuff. Disappointed about the Atlanta delay but totally understandable.

    Hate to wait but the saying is true the best is yet to come…can’t wait because all I could do is laugh when time for the show to come on…we need plenty of laughs these days and that is one show that did that for me!!!
