“It’s all about that paper, kid,” raps Paper Boi, a fictitious artist on the FX series Atlanta, which was created by Donald Glover. To see Alfred Miles, nicknamed Paper Boi (Brian Tyree Henry), and his cousin/manager earn a living in the music business, you have to have that song in mind at all times. The show’s network, based on its decision to purchase two more seasons of the critically praised comedy after its first season, Atlanta Season 3, debuted, seems to be in agreement.
Atlanta About What?
As of September 6, 2016, the FX television series Atlanta is a comedic drama starring Donald Glover that airs on FX. Earnest “Earn” Marks (Glover), a college dropout and music manager, and Paper Boi (Brian Tyree Henry), a rapper, are the stars of the series. It also features Zazie Beetz and Lakeith Stanfield.
Two Golden Globe Prizes and two Primetime Emmy Awards for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series for Glover, as well as several other accolades, have made Atlanta one of the most talked-about shows on television, and it’s also been nominated for numerous other awards and accolades. It was the first time an African-American director, writer, and executive producer had won an Emmy nomination for their work on the show.
A third and fourth season of the show has been confirmed. Season 3 premieres on March 24, 2022, and the final season premieres in the autumn of the same year.
Is Atlanta Season 3 What Will Happen?
One can never predict what will happen in Atlanta’s forthcoming seasons since the program, disguised as one about a budding rapper, regularly explores and deviates from its plot, including one of its bests. But one thing is clear: it will continue chronicling Earn and Al’s never-ending fight to make it in the music business, despite their best efforts, despite institutional prejudice, and despite Earn’s own terrible decision-making.
Paper Boi’s debut tour will showcase all of that since Season 2 finished with him and Earn boarding a flight to Europe with Clark County, and Season 3 was recorded in Amsterdam, London, and Paris, respectively. In light of what we know about Earn’s willingness to risk his life to defend himself and Al, Atlanta might grow much darker.
You may remember that in the Season 2 finale, Earn discovered he had his uncle’s revolver in his baggage, and he placed it into Clark County’s (RJ Walker) suitcase before they passed through airport security. For the sake of protecting his client, Clark County’s manager (Matthew Barnes) decided to take the blame for Earn’s actions, even though nothing had really transpired. The moment was powerful, and it’s possible that this topic could resurface as the two continue to navigate the business and find success.
Additionally, the show’s creators said that they want to include more tales about women in the future. Van, played by Zazie Beetz, is a main character in the program, however, thus far just one episode has focused only on her and her pals. The show’s writer/producer, Stephen Glover, said the Atlanta Season 3 will have “some great concepts… that’ll put some more ladies on screen.” The Atlanta woman’s viewpoint would be examined “in Season 3,” he added.
At this point, we don’t know exactly what it implies, but we can at least be excited knowing that it’s expected to go above and beyond what we expected. Taking to Twitter in November 2020, Donald Glover informed his followers that the next chapters will be “some of the finest television ever filmed.” According to him, “Sopranos are the only ones who can touch us.” We don’t have any doubts!
Who Is Returning To The Cast For Atlanta Season 3?
Almost all of the key cast members will return. Among the cast members missing from the show are Donald Glover, who plays Earn, as well as Paper Boi’s LaKeith Stanfield and Zazie Beetz, who plays Van. RJ Walker, who portrays Clark County, the budding rapper Paper Boi was going to join on tour at the close of Season 2, should also be featured more. There is a chance that Matthew Barnes, who portrays Clark County manager Lucas, might return to reprise his role as the guy seeking to sign Paper Boi.

How many episodes of Atlanta Season 3 will there be?
Season 3 and Season 4 were originally promised eight episodes each, but when the writers came back into the writer’s room and started fleshing things out, that amount was increased. Season 3 will include 10 episodes, while Season 4 will have eight, according to Deadline. Season 1 had ten episodes and Season 2 had eleven, so it’s within the normal range for the show. We’ll take anything we can get, as long as it’s something.
Atlanta Season 3 Release Date
According to FX’s Chairman, John Landgraf, the season will be postponed and would thus miss the 71st Primetime Emmy Awards, which will take place in September 2019. According to Landgraf, the season will premiere in January 2021, with the fourth season airing later that year.
Because of COVID-19, Landgraf indicated the season would not be completed in time for its scheduled launch in January 2021, subsequently indicating that the season will air in February of 2022. FX eventually revealed the season launch date in December of 2021: March 24, 2022.
Atlanta Season 3 Filming Start Or Not?
In June of last year, the show was given a Atlanta Season 3 order. “Atlanta is remarkable, accomplishing and beyond what few television shows have done,” FX Networks and FX Productions programming head Nick Grad said. In the second season of Atlanta Robbin’ Season, Donald and his team built on the series’ huge success from the award-winning first season.
Thank you to the producers and our incredible cast and crew for attaining this level of brilliance, and we look forward to the Atlanta Season 3 knowing that they will continue to take us to unexpected and exhilarating places.”
FX announced in August 2019 that the season will be eight episodes long. FX will buy 10 episodes in January 2020.
It was revealed in January 2019 that the season’s production will be postponed because of the cast’s scheduling. Season 5 will begin production in early 2020, after the fourth season, which will be filmed simultaneously. The COVID-19 epidemic, on the other hand, forced a halt to manufacturing.
In April 2021, the series was slated to begin filming in Europe. A new season of Atlanta is set to begin filming on April 2, 2021, according to actor Donald Glover. FX announced the season’s completion in August 2021.
Atlanta Season 2 Recap
Earn, Alfred, and Van (Zazie Beetz) was at a crossroads at the conclusion of the Atlanta Robbin’ Season. Lottie and Van’s daughter, Lottie, are moving to Van’s mother’s home since Van is fed up with Earn’s lack of commitment and overall unstable lifestyle. On the other hand, Alfred felt the same way and had been thinking of leaving Earn behind as his manager.
After signing on to open for a corny but merciless rapper named Alfred, Earn, Alfred, and Darius were getting ready to get to Europe for a tour with Clark County (RJ Walker). To avoid getting in trouble with the TSA, Earn sneaks the Alligator Man’s gold-plated revolver into Clark County’s suitcase before they even arrive at the airport and go through security there.
On the way to their next destination, Alfred informs Earn about the gun transplant and how impressed he was with Earn’s quick thinking. Even though Earn made a mistake, the manner he handled the situation demonstrated a ruthlessness and loyalty that Alfred really admires. Alfred asserts that they are their only hope in a cutthroat business.
Alfred and Earn’s relationship seems to be stable at the conclusion of Season 2. In the same way that most of the time, the rest of his life isn’t.
Rating For Atlanta Season 3
Atlanta has been hailed as a critical and popular success. 74 reviews, an average score of 8.58/10, and a 97 percent acceptance rating can be found on Rotten Tomatoes, a review aggregation website.

IMDb gave Atlanta an 8.6/ten rating.
The show’s second season earned even more praise from critics. Rotten Tomatoes gives it a 91% approval rating, with 63 reviews and an average rating of 9.11/10, based on 63 reviews.

Atlanta Season 3 Teaser Video by Donald Glover Dropped on Halloween
This year, Donald Glover took advantage of the ominous atmosphere created by Halloween by releasing a new trailer for Atlanta Season 3. The teaser shows us glimpses of numerous distinct locations, some of which seem to be in Europe, confirming FX Networks head John Landgraf’s statement that the program was being shot in the region.
Alfred “Paper Boi” Miles is shown seated in front of a coffin with two sinister-looking men facing the wall behind him as the camera cuts away from these foreboding sights.
The conclusion of the trailer for the upcoming season of Atlanta reads “2022,” and neither FX nor Glover has given any more details concerning the premiere date. Following the teaser, Glover expressed his excitement for season 3 and his frustration with comparisons to FX’s other popular comedy Dave, featuring fellow artist/actor Lil Dicky. Glover also said he was wary of the comparisons.
Is Season 4 of Atlanta the last season?
To say farewell to Alfred, Earn, Darius, and Van, it’s now or never. According to The Hollywood Reporter, FX CEO John Landgraf revealed in February 2022 that Season 4 of Atlanta will be the show’s last season. It should come as no surprise that the series is ending after four years of airing and each key cast member’s career has taken off greatly.
For example, LaKeith Stanfield was nominated for an Oscar, Brian Tyree Henry and Zazie Beetz have starred in major films like Joker, and Donald Glover has been linked to projects at Amazon Prime, including a Mr & Mrs. Smith series.
Season 4 has already been shot, as previously stated. It’s expected to be released not long after the conclusion of Season 3. We know how Atlanta normally ends, so we’re expecting a big finale.
The greatest programs are now on TV. Be prepared for a messy plot, and don’t anticipate a straightforward conclusion. However, the emphasis is not on that. Forcing the audience to think critically (or not) about these scenarios is the goal of the presentation.
Because it can be humorous, tragic, or eerie and terrifying, Atlanta stands apart from other television series that stick to one or two trajectories. Try it out and don’t put it in a box, since Atlanta won’t fit in there. Seasons 3 and 4 have been long overdue, and I’m looking forward to them.
