Fans of Donald Glover’s popular FX series “Atlanta” can finally gear up to watch season two of the show.

Glover, (rapper Childish Gambino), is the creator of “Atlanta.” Season two of “Atlanta” is titled Atlanta Robbin’ Season. According to Vulture, the first episode will air March 1, 2018, at 10 p.m. EST. The show’s production was pushed back until 2018 due to Glover’s hectic schedule. The actor, director and musician landed the role of Lando Calrissian for the upcoming film Solo: A Star Wars Story. Glover also appeared in the major motion picture, Marvel Universe’s Spider-Man: Homecoming. The movie was a huge success over the summer with a total domestic gross of over $300M. In the film, Glover plays the role of Aaron Davis.

“Atlanta” debuted in 2016. Glover plays Earnest Marks, a college dropout now pursuing music management for his cousin, Alfred Miles played by Brian Tyree Henry, who is an aspiring rapper. The show captures the African American experience in Atlanta. The series quickly grew popular, and in 2017, Glover earned two Emmy Awards for Outstanding Director and Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series. In addition to two Emmy Awards, last January, “Atlanta” received Best Comedy Series at the 74th Golden Globes Awards.

The inspiration behind season two, according to Glover, is the Looney Tunes 1990s spinoff Tiny Toon Adventures.
