It’s finally confirmed that season three and four of the American comedy-drama sitcom ‘Atlanta’ will premiere by 2021. The highly acclaimed series premiered its first two seasons from 2016 to 2017 with going on to win awards in different categories. In 2018, it was announced by the production company head John Landgraf, the show will be renewing for a third and a fourth season, but no further work was done on the project for 2 years. Now, with the filming finally being resumed, the show’s upcoming season will be released in fall 2021.
EARNEST BEING THE POOREST
Atlanta is the story behind the hard life of Earnest ‘Earn’ Marks (played by Donald Glover), who’s living in Atlanta struggling with money and relationships. He is a dropout from Princeton University and has no qualifications except for being a high school graduate. Earn also has a daughter, Lottie, with his on-again-off-again girlfriend, Vanessa Keefer (played by Zazie Beetz)
Earn has no assets or money to his name. He lives in poverty throughout the two seasons we have seen. He manages to live by spending nights at his parents’ house and sometimes with his girlfriend, who looks out for him in situations she feels are right. Earn also has a cousin brother Alfred Miles (played by Brian Tyree Henry). Alfred is seen as an upcoming rapper who rises from the low-income community to making a name for himself. He is called out by his stage name ‘Paper Boi’ in the show.
Looking at his brother Alfred’s successful life, Earn seeks for work and desires to reconnect with his life. He wants to improve his life and end his daughter’s difficulties and give her the life she deserves. Vanessa is a former grade school science teacher who helps Earn be himself while helping him find his true potential.
VANESSA AS THE BEST SUPPORTING ROLE
As of season two that premiered in March 2018 and ended with 11 episodes on May 10th, 2018, we saw that Vanessa decides to move in with Lottie to her mother’s house. Earn’s condition over the running of the show improves at a slower rate than getting worse. Rather than finding work by potential, he looks for clever ways to get fame and a living.
Zazie Beetz was nominated for the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for her role as Vanessa in season two of Atlanta. Her role was recognized by many great directors and producers of Hollywood. The show has been in several nominations for small categories and placed in the Top 10 television comedy-drama series in the United States.

Due to the ongoing pandemic, the filming was delayed, and later it was announced that season three and season four would be filmed back to back.
