Score one for Donald Glover.
After debuting his comedy-drama, Atlanta on September 6th, the show has received critical acclaim from television critics, averaging 1.3 million viewers per episode. The premiere episode, grabbed 1.8 total million viewers, becoming FX’s biggest premiere for any half-hour show since 2011.
Variety is now reporting that the series has been renewed for a second, ten-episode season, which would make the show return in 2017.
The show has a heavy Southern rap influence (not including the character of Alfred “Paper Boi” Miles, portrayed by Brian Tyree Henry), as its episodes have been peppered with songs like Kodak Black’s “SKRT” and OJ Da Juiceman’s “No Hook.” Episode three even guest-starred the Migos.
Congrats to Donald on the success. Now, what about PHAROS?
