Donald Glover's 'Atlanta' set to return in March with new title

Donald Glover's 'Atlanta' set to return in March with new title

Donald Glover is finally back with Season 2 of "Atlanta", and as a twist, the show has a new name: "Atlanta Robbin' Season". Stephen Glover, Donald's brother and a writer on the show, shed some light on the new title. "People have to get Christmas gifts so it's a time where robbery will go". "You might get your package stolen off your front porch".

"In the writers room, we spent a lot of time talking about "How I Spent My Summer Vacation" by the Tiny Toons", Glover said.

Speaking at the Television Critics Association press tour Friday, creator and star Donald Glover said that he took inspiration from season two of FX's Emmy-winning half-hour series from "Tiny Toon Adventures", the '90s children's animated program about kid versions of Warner Bros.' Looney Tunes characters. "Our characters are going through insane, desperate transitions so Robbin' Season is kind of a metaphor for all of our characters", he said.

Glover plays Earn Marks, a manger who is trying to elevate his cousin Alfred's (Brian Tyree Henry) career. "You laugh, but Tiny Toons Adventures was fantastic".

First of all, Atlanta Season 2 releases March 1, and that's so close that I might have an anxiety attack.

One place the Glovers didn't look for season 2 insight was the previous season of the series. The Upright Citizens Brigade alum didn't make any promises, just that "We didn't want to come at the second season in terms of how do we beat last season, rather how do we make this another season of a show I want to watch". Also, it's worth noting there's a song called "Robbin' Season" by Migos affiliate Shy Glizzy out of Washington, D.C. If you watched Season 1, you know what Atlanta did to bring "Bad and Boujee" into the culture. "You enjoy them more when they're all together, but you can also enjoy them in bits", Glover said.
