Although only three episodes have aired, Donald Glover aka Childish Gambino’s new TV program Atlanta has been renewed by FX for a second season.
It’s unsurprising considering the show has already proven to be wildly popular, immediately breaking records for the most watched FX debut in years. The show looks at Atlanta life through the eyes of Glover and his cousin, a rapper, detailing the struggle of being unable to support a young family, attempting to break into the hip-hop industry, and the gritty street life that comes along with it. It’s been hailed as equally harrowing and hilarious, allowing viewers a remarkably accurate portrayal of Atlanta and the world of hip-hop.
The series has ben renewed for a ten episode second season
Considering Glover/Gambino is readying his new album PHAROS, it’s unclear as to whether he’ll be focusing his energy and attention on acting or music (or both) throughout 2017.
Childish Gambino will be in town to bring in New Years at Falls Festival; he will also be performing at Field Day on New Years Day alongside Chance the Rapper and others.
