Watch the Awesome New Trailer for the Second Season of ‘Atlanta’
Another quick, 30 second trailer for the second season of Atlanta (now called Atlanta Robbin' Season) has dropped, and it's pretty awesome despite its simplicity.
We get a rotating flip shot of Earn (Donald Glover) in front of various Atlanta spots, including Magic City, CSX cargo trains, and various murals before fading into a nighttime shot of the Atlanta skyline.
Obviously, the second season of Glover's FX series is highly anticipated, especially given the success of its first season. Glover won the Primetime Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series at the 2017 Emmys, as well as the Emmy Award for Outstanding Directing for a Comedy Series, becoming the first black person to win an Emmy in the category. The show also won two Golden Globes.
As previously reported, the second season will focus on the change the crew is going through-- including Paperboi (Brian Tyree Henry) becoming a bigger star.
“Are you going to eat or are you going to be eaten? You kind of have to make a choice, and that choice defines you eventually,” Glover said, per Variety. “This season for [Alfred] it’s ‘Am I going to sell drugs or am I going to be a celebrity?’ You can’t be a famous drug dealer! We tried to make the first season feel like you don’t really know what’s next because that’s what really living is and that’s what we’re being paid to do. But then you get pushed farther and farther away from what real life is, and that’s what we’re trying to stay away from. We’re still trying to have some ties to the culture because quality is what we want to give to the people.”
The first episode of season two will air on March 1 at 10 p.m. on FX. Check out the trailer below.
