The Donald Glover comedy will return in 2019.
June 7, 2018
FX announced today that Atlanta has been picked up for a third season. The good news follows a spring sophomore run that saw the comedy continue to garner critical acclaim from both critics and audiences alike.
The series premiered in 2016 with a 10-episode run that went on to win numerous awards, including two Emmys and two Golden Globes, including one for Best Television Series - Musical or Comedy. Season 2 returned this year with 11 episodes under the title Atlanta: Robbin' Season. With many hailing it as even better than Season 1, the show will likely be in the conversation come award time once again.
Created by comedian and musician Donald Glover, who also stars in the series, Atlanta follows two cash-strapped cousins trying to better their lives by making a living in the city's hip hop scene.
Look for Season 3 of Atlanta in late 2019 or early 2020.

@Paleo, No not white, a "minority" so to speak.
Please don't one of those who will brand me racist for not liking something black. I like Donald glover in other roles he plays (e.g. Community and Spiderman) and enjoyed Lakeith Stanfield in Death note but just did not find this show to be very entertaining. I felt more bored than intrigued much like how i felt with Louie (before the scandal) on the other hand i find Curb you're enthusiasms hilarious. Perhaps shows to political for my liking, its what annoyed me about black-ish a sub par comedy trying to tackle serious topics made me cringe more than anything else. I watch TV for entertainment and escapism not to be depressed. Rant over, enjoy the upcoming season(s).

Donald Glover is such a busy guy that I honestly wasn’t sure if he’d be down for more Atlanta or not but this is fantastic news. It’s great seeing more experimental stuff like this on tv. Every episode of season 2 felt so cinematic in its own way, playing with so many different tones and storylines yet still feeling connected. I’m laughing one week, feeling scared the next, and then sad the week after that. I wouldn’t be surprised if season 3 takes awhile but as far as I’m concerned, Donald Glover and co. can spend as much time as they need to make the show the best thing it can be.
I'd be nihilistic if it mattered

It's not bad but the comedy is few and far between... and some of it is a "slow burn" -- that season 2 episode with Paperboy getting the haircut.. freakin' hilarious.. .the rest of season 2.. meh...

This show provides a look into the experience of a poor, black man and how he and his experience discrimination in many forms, some benevolent, some malicious. It isn’t shown in a way that is overly preachy, or the typical “gotcha” flavor that often shows up In mainstream white liberal fare, but turns the mirror on the audience in a thoughtful yet abrasive way. I’m glad they renewed it.

Good news for its fans, happy for them but honestly do not see the appeal of the show. Tried to get into it, watched the first season and did not find it very interesting or engaging. Seems like a very so,so kind of affair. Can the fans say what they like about the show and whether or not improves?
