FX’s Atlanta season 4 has been renewed and this would be the series’ last season.
Created by Donald Glover Atlanta is a dramedy TV series that was launched on FX on September 6, 2016. The series has been greenlit for a third and fourth instalment with the third season set to air on March 24, 2022.
The series follows Earnest Marks aka Earn (Donald Glover) a college dropout and music manager and musician Paper Boi (Brian Tyree) as they steer through the Atlanta rap event. It stars Donald Glover, Brian Tyree Henry, Lakeith Stanfield, and Zazie Beetz.
Despite the popularity of the series, it came as a surprise to many fans after learning that the fourth season would be the final season, especially after four years of waiting for the series’ third season which is finally arriving this March.
Here we have compiled all the latest details so read the article till the end to know more about the forthcoming last season.
The Reason Behind Why The Series Is Wrapping With The Fourth Season
In a recent interview, showrunner Donald Glover revealed to Deadline the reason why they decided to end the series with the fourth season. He said: “To be honest I wanted to end it at Season 2. Death is natural…when the conditions are right for something, they happen, and when the conditions aren’t right they don’t happen. Things start to get weird…you can’t do too much. The story was always supposed to be what it was and the story, it really was us. It was great, all of that came out this season and it ends perfectly.”
Glover also told reporters that “When the conditions are right for something to happen, it happens, and when they’re not, it doesn’t, the story was always supposed to be what it was.”
To put it, the third and fourth season was never a part of the plan but they decided to continue the story for the character to have a proper send-off.
Atlanta Season 4 Release Date: When Is It?
It’s been reported that the third and fourth seasons were filmed continuously. This means that season 4 of Atlanta is already done with filming and is scheduled for fall 2023. However, the official release date hasn’t been provided but we’ll update this section as soon as we hear anything about the forthcoming season.
When Atlanta first debuted, it garnered a lot of attention and appreciation from the audience. It is also worth noting that the series has won two Emmy Awards and two Golden Globe Awards.
It’s disappointing that the series is ending however, fans need not panic since Glover himself disclosed that he’d be interested in revisiting the series in the future, “if there’s a reason to do it, but it always depends. I like keeping options open.”
The Cast of Atlanta Season 4: Who’s in it?
We’d expect to see all the major characters return in the fourth season and final season of the series.
Donald Glover plays Earnest “Earn” Marks
Brian Tyree Henry portrays Alfred “Paper Boi” Miles
LaKeith Stanfield characterizes as Darius Epps
Zazie Beetz will play Vanessa “Van” Keefer
There will likely be more characters but as of now, nothing is confirmed.
The Plot for Season 4 of Atlanta: What to Expect?
Landgraf revealed to reporters that “The new season is everything you’ve come to expect from Atlanta.”
Right now, it’s hard to assume what would actually happen in the fourth season as the third season hasn’t even aired yet but the storyline would be greatly affected by how the third season ends.
While you patiently wait for the fourth season, in the meantime you can catch the third season which is scheduled to arrive on March 24, 2022.
