Donald Glover Teases Atlanta Seasons 3 and 4: ‘Some of the Best Television Ever Made’

Donald Glover is teasing that the next two seasons of Atlanta will be “some of the best television ever made.”

On Friday, the star made a shout-out on Twitter to Atlanta alum Angela Barnes Gomes, who recently directed a viral voting PSA. Glover shared that he was asked to participate.

“Angela Barnes Gomes ('atlanta' alum) made those 'get ur booty to the polls' yall love/hated so much,” he said. “She asked me to rap on it, but @Steve_G_Lover is a better rapper…so.”

He then promoted Atlanta, comparing seasons 3 and 4 of the FX series to HBO hit The Sopranos. “While im here: 'atlanta' s3+s4 are going to be some of the best television ever made,” he wrote. “Sopranos only ones who can touch us.”

Glover both created and stars in the critically acclaimed comedy-drama series, which first premiered in 2016. He plays Earn, a college dropout who helps his cousin Alfred (Brian Tyree Henry) with his rap career.

The third and fourth seasons have been delayed due to coronavirus concerns, with season 3 projected to premiere sometime in late 2021. According to Complex, the show plans to begin shooting early next year and will film the next two seasons back-to-back, as was the plan prior to the pandemic.
