CL Critic Curt Holman Recommends: When is “Atlanta” not “Atlanta?” Donald Glover’s genre-bending comedy series finally returns to television – but not necessarily to the eponymous city. It’s been almost four years since the show finished its second season and it’s long-delayed third season finally premieres on FX on March 24. But reportedly the newest adventures of hip-hop star Paperboi (Bryan Tyree Henry) and his entourage (Glover, Lakeith Stanfield, Zazie Beetz) will take place primarily in Europe, having been shot in such locales as London, Paris and Amsterdam. (The production has already begun on the locally-filmed fourth – and final – season, scheduled to air this fall.) — CH
From the venue:
Taking place almost entirely in Europe, Season 3 of Atlanta finds “Earn” (Donald Glover), “Alfred ‘Paper Boi’ Miles” (Brian Tyree Henry), “Darius” (LaKeith Stanfield) and “Van” (Zazie Beetz) in the midst of a successful European tour, as the group navigates their new surroundings as outsiders, and struggle to adjust to the newfound success they had aspired to.
Donald Glover serves as Executive Producer, along with Stephen Glover, Hiro Murai, Stefani Robinson, Paul Simms and Dianne McGunigle.
Atlanta is produced by FX Productions.
