Coronavirus Will Delay Filming of Next Two ‘Atlanta’ Seasons Until 2021

Earn and Paper Boi were last seen flying to Europe on Atlanta, but they won’t touch down until sometime next year. The acclaimed FX comedy starring creator Donald Glover as Earn and Brian Tyree Henry as his rapper cousin will begin its pandemic-delayed production in the first half of 2021, FX Networks Chairman John Landgraf said Wednesday (Sept. 9).

Glover and the other series’ writers have completed the scripts for seasons three and four, with plans to tape them back to back. But COVID-19 safety concerns and the intricate task of coordinating a lengthy shoot hindered production, said Landgraf. One season is to be shot primarily in Europe and the other in Atlanta.

A lag time already was expected for the return of the Emmy-winning Atlanta, which last aired new episodes in May 2018. Earlier this year, Landgraf suggested season three would debut in January 2021, with season four likely to follow that fall. Landgraf didn’t venture a guess on when the show would be rescheduled, but during an online news conference promised the earliest possible “concrete answer.”

He called the situation heartbreaking “because I love the show so much and want it to be a part of our schedule always.”
