Trailer: Atlanta Season 2 gets June UK air date
James R | On 09, May 2018
Atlanta Season 2 will be available to watch online in the UK this June, as Donald Glover’s show makes a welcome return to our screens.
The series, which is created by and written by Glover, stars the Community veteran as Earnest Marks, who drops out of Princeton and returns to his hometown of Atlanta. There, he discovers that his cousin, Alfred, has become the city’s hottest new rap act.
The show follows the two cousins as they work through the Atlanta music scene in order to better their lives and the lives of their families. Co-starring with Glover are Brian Tyree Henry, Lakeith Stanfield, and Zazie Beetz.
Glover also directs, alongside Janicza Bravo (Netflix’s Love) and regular Childish Gambino collaborator Hiro Murai. He exec produces the programme too, along with Paul Simms, Dianne McGunigle and Stephen Glover.
“Atlanta mixes serious focus with random, highly silly and very funny ideas,” we wrote in our review of Season 1. “Gorgeously shot, with great music drops throughout, the show could be Louie-like, or Master Of None-esque, yet feels entirely its own, unique thing, where Glover’s starring role doesn’t mean it’s all about him. That plenty of characters get great laugh lines, nice emotional beats, and an episode to explore their worldview means Atlanta grows as the season chugs along, and has possibility for further expansion over the years.”
Indeed, FX renewed the show for a second season within weeks of Season 1’s premiere. Season 2: Robbin’ Season will premiere at 10pm on Sunday 17th June on FOX UK, which was the exclusive first-run home of the first season. FOX UK is available on Sky, Virgin Media and TalkTalk TV. Don’t have pay-TV? You will also be able to stream it on NOW for £7.99 a month, with no contract and a 7-day free trial – episodes will be removed 30 days after their broadcast.
