I’ve got bad news y’all!
Four days after scooping the Golden Globe for Best Television Series, FX has announced season 2 of “Atlanta” will be delayed until 2018.
Donald Glover‘s production schedule is to blame.
Glover, of course, has a big movie commitment, playing Lando Calrissian in the Han Solo Star Wars movie, which will film this year for a 2018 release. For Glover, that has been a dream role. “Lando’s a big deal to me,” he said at the Golden Globes on Sunday. “It was literally the first toy I ever got.”
At the Globes, Glover landed two awards as Atlanta won best comedy series and he was named best actor in a comedy series.
During the TCA executive session, FX Networks CEO John Landgraf said the network was “fully supportive” of Glover’s need to pull away from Atlanta to play Lando. “We are thrilled for him,” Landgraf said.
While I’m thrilled to see Donald Glover out here being bad and boujee, the news of this delay has me feeling like…
Welp. At least we know the show will return…someday.
