‘Atlanta’ Seasons 3 & 4 Will Film Back-To-Back in March; Donald Glover Leave FX for Amazon

Published

Will Donald Glover‘s recently announced Amazon deal impact the future of the show?

The award-winning series Atlanta will reportedly start filming seasons 3 and 4 back-to-back in March. Per THR, this is being done to get the show back to our screens as soon as possible.

Atlanta follows Princeton-dropout-turned-music-manager Earn (Glover), his cousin Alfred (Brian Tyree Henry), a rising rapper named Paper Boi, as they navigate the local hip-hop scene.  Lakeith Stanfield and Zazie Beetz also star in the series that last aired in May 2018, concluding season 2.

Along with the news of the show starting production for its final seasons (as of now), came the news of Glover exiting his overall deal with FX for a multiple-year, eight-figure overall deal with Amazon. How will that affect Atlanta, you ask? It will not. And although the FX series has not been renewed beyond season 4, Glover’s contract with Amazon, reportedly, has a “carve-out” that will allow him to work on Atlanta beyond season 4 if he chooses to do so.

The new episodes of Atlanta‘s season 3 are expected to air in late 2021.

Emmy-winning actress Kerry Washington has been confirmed to join the third installment of ‘Knives Out.’

Washington will join a star-studded cast that includes Daniel Craig, reprising his role as the enigmatic detective Benoit Blanc, Andrew Scott, Josh O’Connor, and Cailee Spaeny.

The ‘Knives Out’ series, directed by Rian Johnson, is a mix of whodunit mystery and comedy. The first film, released on Netflix in 2019, quickly became a hit among audiences and critics alike. Its success led to the announcement of a second and third film, with the third film’s title recently revealed as ‘Wake Up Dead Man: The Knives Out Mystery’.

While the plot is currently kept under wraps, the third installment is set to be a standalone mystery, not directly connected to the previous films. Washington’s addition and other new cast members suggest that the film will continue the series’ tradition of intricate, unpredictable plots and surprising twists.
