Atlanta Prepares For Robbin' Season In New Teaser

FX is taking us back to Georgia.

The second season of Donald Glover's dreamy dramedy Atlanta is coming down the pipeline soon, and you can watch the moody first teaser for the series' new episodes now.

Rather than the typical "season 2" moniker, the show's creative team is billing this installment of Atlanta as "Robbin' Season", which refers to an increase in robberies that occurs during the end-of-year holiday rush.

"People have to get Christmas gifts so it's a time where robbery will go," said Stephen Glover, a writer on the show, according to Billboard. "You might get your package stolen from the front porch. It's just a very tense and desperate time."

The second season of Atlanta will continue the overarching story of the first season, following Glover's Earn Marks as he manages his cousin's burgeoning hip-hop career. According to the writing staff, the grind isn't going to get any easier this go-around.

"Our characters are going through insane, desperate transitions," said Stephen. "So Robbin' Season is kind of a metaphor for all of our characters."

Donald Glover also discussed one of the surprising inspirations for the second season's structure: Tiny Toons.

"We just went into this like, 'Why are we going to do season 2? Everybody does season 2!'" he said. "And in the writers room, we talked a lot about How I Spent My Summer Vacation by Tiny Toons—which was a show we all really liked—and that was kind of the inspiration for season 2."

Glover, who has previously said that Atlanta's second season is better than the first one, claims that the writing staff didn't look back on the first season to help determine how they should shape the next one. 

"We didn't look back and think, 'What are the things that will make people happy?'" said Glover. "We really just tried to beat ourselves and always just kept trying to do something that was different from the first season."

Atlanta's Robbin' Season will premiere on FX on March 1. In addition to seeing him in Atlanta, you can anticipate Glover's upcoming turn as Lando Calrissian in Solo: A Star Wars Storyand look forward to watching him as Simba the lion in Disney's live-action remake of The Lion King.
