Donald Glover, better known as Childish Gambino to fans of Glover’s rap music, is a man of many skills. Glover writes, acts, and possesses a plethora of other talents. Donald can add his Golden Globe nomination for his FX Television series Atlanta to his list of credits. According to the Los Angeles Times, shows like Atlanta and Insecure represent new TV shows with fresh talent that have garnered well-deserved Golden Globe nominations. As reported by the Inquisitr, Issa Rae’s Insecure on HBO launched a season two casting contest via Instagram. However, information about the second season of Atlanta is harder to come by.
Whereas 10 episodes of Atlanta from season No. 1 can be seen on FX’s website as of writing; at least for those who have the proper viewing credentials, the FX network hasn’t released much information about what to expect from the second season of Atlanta, or when season No. 2 will premiere.
According to IMDB, the second season of Atlanta should appear at some point in 2017, but right now, there is no exact date for the season No. 2 premiere episode of Atlanta. However, the publication does explain the gist of the entire Atlanta season No. 1, as viewers fell in love with the show.
“Two cousins, with different views on art versus commerce, on their way up through the Atlanta rap scene; Earnest ‘Earn’ Marks, an ambitious college drop-out and his estranged cousin, who suddenly becomes a star.”
As reported by Bustle, the FX show Atlanta was picked up for a second season, and just like season No. 1 of Atlanta, season No. 2 of Atlanta will also contain 10 episodes. The publication theorizes that the second season of Atlanta might take quite a while to create since the TV show, which is actually filmed in Atlanta, took quite some time for the first season to air. The publication expects to see the second season air in the Fall of 2017.
Therefore, fans of Atlanta have the 10 episodes of season No. 1 to enjoy, such as the first episode of Atlanta, titled “The Big Bang.” That episode featured Paper Boi, a sort of accidental rapper who is dealing with his newfound fame due to a hit song that contains violent lyrics.
The second episode of the first season of Atlanta was titled “Streets on Lock,” and it took a humorous and sad look inside of a jail. Men weren’t allowed to sleep as the sat in stiff chairs prior to being processed into the jail before they entered their jail cells. The sad humor turned horrific as a mentally unstable man was beaten.
The third episode of Atlanta, titled “Go For Broke,” contains not only the following funny description of the episode, but it also contained a sympathetic look at what Glover’s character experienced when trying to take his girlfriend out to dinner to thank her for getting him out of jail.
“This man Earn broke as hell. How you gone go out on a date with no money? Umm mhmm these Atlanta dudes trifling. But Ok, Paper Boi might really be about that life tho. An FX Original Series.”
“The Streisand Effect” fourth episode explored the ramifications of gaining fame. In episode No. 5 of Atlanta, titled “Nobody Beats the Biebs” a literal character named Justin Bieber gains love and fame that Paper Boi doesn’t yet have. The sixth episode was titled “Value,” and it took a look at Earn’s baby’s mother, Van. Van had dinner with an old friend; a woman who jet sets around the world as the date of rich men, including basketball players.
The episode No. 7 called “B.A.N.” was a trippy exploration in the land of Montague, which ended up being more of a commentary on current TV talk shows, and the Atlanta episode contained plenty of humorous takes on advertisements with a big twist to them. The eighth episode of Atlanta took place in “The Club,” and featured Glover’s character trying to extract the $5,000 he was owed for Paper Boi’s club appearance and ended with an invisible car plowing folks over outside the club.
Lastly, “Juneteeth” and “The Jacket” rounded out the ninth and tenth episodes of the first season of Atlanta.
