FX has just released a one-minute trailer for season two of Atlanta titled Atlanta Robbin’ Season. The new official trailer catches up with season one’s Donald Glover (‘Earn Marks’), Brian Tyree Henry (‘Alfred Miles’), and Lakeith Lee Stanfield (‘Darius’) and offers that during robbin’ season “everybody gotta eat.”
“‘Robbin’ season’ for most people who don’t know is a time in Atlanta before Christmas time and New Years where a bunch of crime happens in that time because people have to get Christmas gifts and people need money, so it’s a time when robberies go up all the time,” explained executive producer Stephen Glover during the 2018 Winter Television Critics Association event.
Donald Glover also offered an explanation at the TCA event as to why the second season has a different title. “What we liked about the first season is that we just looked at it as 30 minutes on television. We weren’t trying to think about it in terms of sitcoms or tropes or what has come before it. We really tried to just devolve what television was. We just had 30 minutes to do whatever we wanted. We just went into this why are we going to do seasons? Everybody does seasons. The theme we wanted to go for was this,” said Donald Glover.
FX’s Atlanta Robbin’ Season will premiere on Thursday, March 1, 2018 at 10pm ET/PT.
