“All good things end,” Glover said diversity. “It felt like it was time to end. I don’t like it when people [are] 40 pretending to be 15 and shit. It’s annoying.”
The show’s third season takes place almost entirely in Europe, after season two ended with Earn (Glover), Alfred aka Paper Boi (Brian Tyree Henry), and Darius (LaKeith Stanfield) traveling to Amsterdam.
Speaking of season three, Zazie Beetz, who plays Vanessa Keefer, said, “It’s a very honest season. All of the characters are out of their element, which brings things to the surface that you might otherwise repress in habits and comfort. And here you can’t because you have nothing to catch you.
“It’s a lot of truth and reflection about where we all stand as ourselves and as people — as me, as Zazie.”
Speaking of season three, Glover added, “We just wanted to do a black fairy tale. I remember sitting in the writers’ room and thinking, ‘What are we writing about?’ We just wanted to do short stories. Something I want to see.”
Both the third and fourth seasons of Atlanta were filmed back-to-back after production was delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic. The final season is scheduled to air later this year.
Glover previously claimed that in 2020 The sopranos is the only thing that can “touch” the next two seasons Atlanta. On Twitter he wrote: “Atlanta s3+s4 will be some of the best TVs ever made.”
