We’re so here for a second season of Atlanta: Robbin’ Season. This time around the groundbreaking FX series looks like it raised the stakes sky-high for Earn, Paper Boi and the rest of the crew.
Here’s what we know so far: The trailer focuses on “robbin’ season,” which is deemed as the time around the holidays when there’s extra cash flow moving through a neighborhood that doesn’t typically have it. People are trying to get money to buy gifts for others, which causes stress and makes some desperate, causing crime to increase.
“It’s robbin’ season, everybody got to eat,” Darius, played by Lakeith Stanfield, says in the clip.
The trailer actually doesn’t reveal much else about season 2. According to Variety, executive producer Stephen Glover said much of the plot would follow Earn Marks (played by Donald Glover) and Alfred, aka Paper Boi (played by Brian Tyree Henry), going through personal changes.
“It’s a very dangerous, uncertain time in the city. So everybody’s shaken up a little bit this year, and everybody has to make important decisions,” he told the web site. “‘Robbin’ Season’ is kind of like a metaphor for all of our characters.”
After debuting in 2016, Atlanta had to be delayed due to Donald Glover’s production schedule. He was enlisted to play Lando Calrissian in the forthcoming Han Solo film and is also supposed to portray Simba in a live-action remake of The Lion King.
The first episode of Atlanta’s second season debuts March 1 on FX.
