Ten-Episode Third Season Premieres March 24th
LOS ANGELES, December 22, 2021 – After a three-year hiatus, FX’s award-winning hit comedy series Atlanta returns for its third season on Thursday, March 24th at 10 p.m. ET/PT on FX and will stream the next day on Hulu. The premiere event will feature the first two episodes. FX will run a new teaser trailer in ESPN and ABC’s slate of NBA games on Christmas Day.
The 10-episode third season marks the first time Atlanta will be available for in-season streaming on Hulu. The first two seasons are also available to stream on Hulu.
“We are thrilled to have Atlanta back with a new season on March 24th,” said Eric Schrier, President, FX Entertainment. “Once again, Donald Glover, the producers and stellar cast have delivered another signature season synonymous with the excellence that makes Atlanta so great.”
Taking place almost entirely in Europe, Season 3 finds “Earn” (Donald Glover), “Alfred / ‘Paper Boi'” (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.
Atlanta is executive produced by Donald Glover, Stephen Glover, Hiro Murai, Stefani Robinson, Paul Simms and Dianne McGunigle. Atlanta is produced by FX Productions.
In its most recent season in 2018, the 14 Emmy(R) nominations for Atlanta Robbin Season’ were the most of any comedy series. Through its first two seasons, Atlanta has won five Emmy Awards as well as two Golden Globe(R) Awards, two AFI Awards, Peabody, PGA, WGA, TCA, NAACP and Critics’ Choice Awards.
