Disney’s FX has announced that the third season of the award-winning comedy, “Atlanta”, will be returning for its third season on March 24th on FX, with a two-episode premiere and the following day they will be available on Hulu.
The 10-episode series takes 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.
In a statement, Eric Schrier, President, FX Entertainment said:
“We are thrilled to have Atlanta back with a new season on March 24th. Once again, Donald Glover, the producers and stellar cast have delivered another signature season synonymous with the excellence that makes Atlanta so great.”
This will be the first time “Atlanta” will be available on Hulu while the series is airing, since the show hasn’t aired since Disney purchased 20th Century Fox.
Previous seasons are available to stream on Hulu in the US and are available on Disney+ in some countries including the United Kingdom and Ireland. With the BBC deal with FX now expired, it’s likely the third season will also be available on Disney+ in the UK. However, due to previous contracts with other networks, the series isn’t available in some countries like Australia.
Atlanta, produced by FX Productions, is executive produced by Donald Glover, Stephen Glover, Hiro Murai, Stefani Robinson, Paul Simms and Dianne McGunigle.
The third season of “Atlanta” was originally ordered in 2018, but it was delayed because of Donald Glover’s busy schedule and was later delayed because of the pandemic. The good news is that the team then filmed seasons 3 and 4 back-to-back.
FX also announced that they will run a new teaser trailer for “Atlanta” during ESPN and ABC’s slate of NBA games on Christmas Day.
