Atlanta recently announced that it had been renewed for a third season by FX. In a new interview, creator and star Donald Glover has compared each season to Kanye West records, and specifically the third season being like his Graduation album.
“I align the seasons I think, to me, like Kanye records,” Glover told IndieWire. “I feel like this is our ‘Graduation.’ This is probably our most accessible but also the realest — an honest version of it — and I feel like the most enjoyable, like the third album. We were all on iMessage together and kind of talking about it, and I think people were really hungry to like beat ourselves, which is great.”
The third season is set to premiere in 2019.
