For those who’ve been impatiently waiting to see what happened after we left Earn sleeping in a storage unit in the season finale of Atlanta, you don’t have to wait much longer. FX announced the 2018 return dates for several shows, including the hit comedy-drama.
Atlanta Robbin’ Season (aka Atlanta, Season 2) will debut on Thursday, March 1 at 10 p.m. ET. The show will continue to focus on the story of Earnest (played by Donald Glover), the Princeton dropout turned aspiring rap manager. He’s also attempting to balance life with his on again/off again girlfriend Van (played by Zazie Beets) with the suddenly emerging rap career of his cousin Paper Boi (played by Bryan Tyree Henry). Lakeith Stanfield will return as the often enigmatic, but always right on time, Darius.
The show, created and executive produced by Glover and his brother Stephen, came out the gate strong in its debut season in 2016. A second season was ordered less than two weeks after the series premiere, and the show racked up major accolades by season’s end. Atlanta went on to win Best Television—Musical or Comedy and Best Actor—Television Series Musical or Comedy for Glover at the 2017 Golden Globes, and two Emmys for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series and Outstanding Directing for a Comedy Series, making Glover the first African American to win an Emmy in that category.
The network also announced dates for the spy thriller The Americans starring Matthew Broderick and Keri Russell, and the series premiere date for Trust, a drama series focusing on one of America’s wealthiest and chaotic families, the Gettys. The sixth season of The Americans will debut on Wednesday, March 28 at 10 p.m. ET. Trust will debut on Sunday, March 25, at 10 p.m. ET.
