TVLine Items: Atlanta Final Season Date, Adam Pally's New Gig and More

FX has set a date for its return to Atlanta: Donald Glover’s Emmy-winning comedy will debut its fourth and final season in September, a new teaser reveals. (That’s a quick turnaround: Season 3 just wrapped up in May.)

The teaser — which you can watch above — also includes a number of sly nods to the show’s past, with Earn, Van, Darius and Al walking through a convenience store parking lot littered with notable objects from previous seasons. We spot Teddy Perkins’ piano and ostrich egg, Earn’s uncle’s alligator, the Coconut Crunch-Os cereal, the invisible car, the annoying blogger Zan who bugged Al in Season 1 and the tree Al chopped down last season. (Did we miss anything?)

Plus, Season 4 will find Earn and company “back in their hometown,” per the official description. “But the question is, has Atlanta changed or have they?”
