Donald Glover’s FX series “Atlanta” has been picked up for a second season.

The renewal news comes after three episodes of the series were aired, according to Billboard. The second installment of the comedy will have 10 episodes. The current run has 9.

The series follows the story of Earn (Glover) and how he tries to win back the trust and affection of his loved ones in Atlanta after dropping out of Princeton. Along with his cousin Alfred “Paper Boi” Miles (Bryan Tyree Henry), Earn will try to make it out as a musician in Atlanta in order to provide for their loved ones.

Another FX series, “Better Things, was also renewed for another season.

Speaking of the decision, Nick Grad and Eric Schier, Presidents of Original Programming for FX Networks and FX Productions said in a statement: “It’s really gratifying to launch two new comedies that have received overwhelming critical acclaim right out of the gate and that are emblematic of FX’s award-winning brand.”

Glover has not released a statement about the renewal yet, although he did tweet out a sunglasses emoticon shortly after the news came out.

Fans have also taken to Twitter to share their joy over the show’s renewal. Below are some of the celebratory tweets.


“Atlanta” became the highest-rating comedy cable show since 2013 when it premiered on Sept. 6, according to The Wrap. The show airs every Tuesday at 10 p.m. on FX.
