Atlanta Season 3: Production Details
As per the recent reports, the production work for the third and fourth season will start all together in the Spring of 2020. This means that the filming for both the seasons of Atlanta will happen at once. Also, both the seasons will consist of the eight-episode queue.
Delay Because Of Glover’s Tight Schedule
The second season of Atlanta came in March 2018. And since then, the fans of the series has been kept asking about the next run. However, earlier this year, FX revealed that Atlanta Season is delayed because of the lead Donald Glover’s busy schedule. The actor is caught up between Atlanta, his film career and also his music career, which is making hard to begin the filming work on the third season.
Although, with the renewal for the fourth season, it seems right that the actor will eventually make space for Atlanta and shoot the third and fourth season back to back. Also, the production work on the fourth season would wrap up before the premiere of Season 3. Therefore the audience might need to wait much for the fourth run, after the third season.
Atlanta Season 3: Plot Details
Atlanta is one such series, that takes hard twists and turns out of nowhere. It is a series that consistently breaks all conventional television storytelling rules. One such event was “Teddy Perkins” episode of the second season. So, it is utterly impossible to predict what will happen in the upcoming season of Atlanta.
Though, whatever happens by the end of the second season, the audience will be sure that the show will return to complete that arc in the fourth season.
Atlanta Season 3: Premiere Date
Even the production on Atlanta Season 3 has not started yet. Therefore, the fans have to wait for longer for the third season to arrive. The filming will kick start in spring 2020. Therefore, Season 3 of Atlanta would likely come around late 2020, or in early 2021. However, the network has not given any update on the official premiere date of Atlanta Season 3 yet.
