Our first look at Robbin’ Season will be here.
FX dropped the first trailer for season two of Atlanta on Tuesday, featuring Earn (Donald Glover), Darius (Lakeith Stanfield) as well as also Paper Boi’s (Brian Tyree Henry) continued ups as well as also downs.
The trailer opens with Paper Boi’s appearance on a local radio station, which hilariously doesn’t end up being as cool as he might think. Elsewhere, Darius declares that will the idea’s “robbin’ season,” the time around Christmas when people in an impoverished area try to get money as well as also holiday gifts — often producing them desperate as well as also more likely to commit crimes.
Earn, meanwhile, seems to both prosper as well as also struggle. In one scene, he gets searched by the cops, as well as also in another, he’s fanning a stack of hundred-dollar bills. “You’re going to get us robbed,” Van quips.
Glover opened up about the inspiration behind season two of Atlanta at FX’s Television Critics Association press tour last month.
“from the writers’ room, we talked about [How I Spent My Vacation] by Tiny Toons. that will was the inspiration for season two,” he said to a room full of laughter, explaining that will the idea was one of his favorite childhood TV shows.
“We didn’t definitely look back at season one for inspiration as much. I feel like if you do that will as a producer of television, you tend to be risk averse, which I think will be bad for art,” he said. “What are the things that will will make people happy? We just tried to be ourselves.”
