Season one consisted of 10 episodes, season two was made up of 11, and seasons three and four will have eight episodes each.
Atlanta was created by Donald Glover who also stars and executive produces. Paul Simms, Dianne McGunigle, Stephen Glover, and Hiro Murai also serve as executive producers.

The popular series has earned five Emmy Awards, two AFI Awards, two Golden Globes, two Critics’ Choice Awards, and a PGA Award.
“What more can be said about Atlanta than the critical acclaim and accolades that Donald, Paul, Dianne, Stephen and Hiro have earned for two exceptional seasons of what is clearly one of the best shows on television,” stated Eric Schrier, President, FX Entertainment. “This group of collaborators and cast have created one of the most original, innovative stories of this generation and we are proud to be their partners.”
A Look Back at Season 2:
“The second season, Atlanta Robbin’ Season, was hailed as the best show on television. In Atlanta Robbin’ Season, two cousins work through the Atlanta music scene in order to better their lives and the lives of their families. “Earn Marks” (Glover) is a young manager trying to get his cousin’s career off the ground. “Alfred Miles” (Henry) is a new hot rapper trying to understand the line between real life and street life. “Darius” (Stanfield) is Alfred’s right-hand man and visionary. “Van” (Beetz) is Earn’s best friend and the mother of Earn’s daughter.”
