The second season of Donald Glover’s critically acclaimed Atlanta—a nuanced comedy about black life set in Glover’s home town—is being delayed until 2018, according to FX Network. This due largely to Glover’s Star Wars/Han Solo film production scheduling.
Glover, also cast in the upcoming Spider-Man reboot, recently won Golden Globes for best television series (musical or comedy) for Atlanta, and also took home best actor in a comedy series. After thanking his team for the best series award, he also thanked rap group Migos for making “Bad and Boujee.”
Glover has also secured an exclusive full deal with FX, to develop additional projects including streaming services. He will continue on as executive producer, head writer, and star of Atlanta.
“Donald is a remarkable artist, effortlessly shifting from actor to writer, producer, director and musician to create one amazing project after another,” FX President of Original Programming Nick Grad said in a statement. “Atlanta was just the beginning, the breakout comedy of the year and a series revered as much for its originality as its honest look at the experience of being aspiring, young and black in that legendary city. We’re proud to partner with Donald in an overall deal that will allow him to continue turning his creative vision into incredible television.”
Glover, the rapper turned R&B star, is also riding a parallel wave, from his acclaimed December release of Awaken, My Love. The musical letter of love and admiration is a dedication for his son, and his father, with whom he listened to the Funkadelic/Prince influences that deeply inform the project.
Here are some of the commercials featured within the best episode in season 1, “B.A.N.”:
