Donald Glover is a modern-day Renaissance Man, whose talents span a handful of mediums including screens big and small (and, of course, music). Atlanta is his latest venture into the wonderful world of prestige TV.
Glover stars as Earnest “Earn” Marks, a Princeton dropout looking to redeem himself in the eyes of his girlfriend and mother of his child. Having little hope and few prospects, Glover decides to take charge of his cousin’s rap career. Alfred Miles, or as he’s known on stage, Paper Boi is about to break it big, and Earn is going to ride the wave to stardom and luckily, redemption.
Here’s everything you need to know to stream Atlanta.

What the critics are saying:
- “A painfully funny follow-up to a debut season that seemed hard to top. … [Robbin’ Season] is loaded with the same brilliant mix of social commentary, internal dialogue and making something out of nothing.” –Lorraine Ali, Los Angeles Times
- “Glover and friends seem to have hit on a new way to surprise the audience: by making Atlanta, at least for a while, into a more conventional TV show. The three episodes given to critics are by far the most consistent in terms of story and tone of any comparable stretch from season one. … Atlanta can be great because you never expect what it might do next. But that’s far from the only reason it’s great, as the start of season two so potently demonstrates.” –Alan Sepinwall, Uproxx
