Donald Glover’s FX ‘Atlanta’ Renewed for Season 2 With ‘Better Things’
FX is certainly riding high after their Emmy wins Sunday night, and the success of their newest comedies could bring more. As such, Donald Glover’s breakout hip-hop dramedy Atlanta will return for Season 2, along with Pamela Adlon’s Better Things.
The network announced both renewals late Tuesday, clarifying that both would return for ten episodes apiece in 2017. For its part, Atlanta scored the best premiere of any basic cable primetime comedy in three years, while FX also boasts that Better Things has their “most female-driven audience ever.”
It’s really gratifying to launch two new comedies that have received overwhelming critical acclaim right out of the gate and that are emblematic of FX’s award-winning brand. It is clear to us that Atlanta and Better Things have struck a nerve with viewers, which is a credit to Donald Glover’s vision for Atlanta and Pamela Adlon’s vision for Better Things. They, along with their spectacular casts, writers and directors, have created exceptional shows that we are incredibly proud to produce.
In the meantime, both Better Things and Atlanta continue their inaugural runs this week on Tuesday and Thursday, trailers for which you can find below. If you haven’t checked out either series, now’s certainly the time, but both are here to stay.
