Hot off the success of Atlanta Season 2 and Childish Gambino’s “This Is America,” FX is locking down director Hiro Murai. The frequent Donald Glover collaborator will soon expand to his own FX series, aiming to develop new TV projects for FX Networks and beyond.
Now that 2018 is finally here, all our 2016 faves are making belated returns. FX and Donald Glover’s Atlanta is first-up with March’s Season 2 premiere, and a new promo teasing the mysterious “Robbin’ Season” ahead.
2017 is already half-over, though it seems only yesterday we learned that Donald Glover’s FX Atlanta would join Westworld in delaying its second season to 2018. Glover’s understandably busy in the meantime, but Season 2 production will apparently start next month, as Glover teases his controversial approach.
The nominations are in for the 2017 Emmy Awards and there’s just as much to celebrate as there is to be disappointed about. The 2016-2017 TV season was a huge year for the small screen, reaching the peak-iest of peak TV. It was full of more new series than you could keep track of, diverse casts, and many groundbreaking episodes in both the comedy and drama departments.

And critical and fan favorites like The Leftovers, Girls, and Legion were nowhere to be seen in the top categories.
It’s a brave new world for the 2017 Emmy awards with Game of Thrones and others sitting this year out. The big announcement is finally here, as presented by Veep star Anna Chlumsky and Criminal Minds veteran Shemar Moore, so let’s find out what we’re all angry about/celebrating this year at the Emmys!
