“Atlanta” has been renewed for a third season at FX, the cable network announced Thursday.
The half-hour series created by Donald Glover has received high aclaim for its first two seasons. Season 1 was nominated for six Emmy Awards, winning two: outstanding lead actor in a comedy series and outstanding directing for a comedy series, with both awards going to Glover.
“’Atlanta’ is phenomenal, achieving and exceeding what few television series have done,” said FX Networks and FX Productions co-president Nick Grad. “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.”
