The highly-anticipated second season of Donald Glover’s comedy series Atlanta won’t air until 2018, FX announced earlier today (January 12).
The series is being put on hold due to Glover’s packed production schedule, which includes his portrayal of Lando Calrissian in the Han Solo Star Wars movie, also slated for a 2018 release.
At this year’s Golden Globe Awards ceremony, Atlanta walked away with two honors for its first season on-air. The show beat out Black-ish and Veep, among others, to win Best Television Series – Musical or Comedy, while Glover took home the award for Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series – Musical or Comedy.
During his acceptance speech at this past Sunday’s awards ceremony, Gambino gave a gracious thank you to Migos for nothing more than giving the world “Bad And Boujee,” which is currently #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
Although the next installment of Atlanta won’t air until 2018, Migos’ Quavo is already eyeing a role in the show’s second season: “I hope [Childish Gambino] hit my phone, I hope we can do season two,” the ATL rapper said during a recent interview with The Progress Report.
