The Emmy-winning series “Atlanta” took 2017 off because creator Donald Glover was too busy starring in upcoming “Spider-Man” and “Star Wars” films. But in recent weeks, he’s been finally filming the second season of the show with ten more episodes planned.

FX today finally announced a return date: Thursday, March 1, 2018 at 10 p.m.

I have not been able to procure a set visit or talk to any cast members yet. They are keeping a tight lid on what’s going on but the name of the show has been changed, which is open to interpretation: “Atlanta Robbin’ Season.”

The critically acclaimed first season was a quirky blend of comedy, drama and surreal moments, providing America a very different look at the city than shows like “Real Housewives of Atlanta” and “Love and Hip Hop Atlanta.” Although Glover hasn’t lived in the area for many years, he did grow up in Stone Mountain and graduated from the DeKalb School of the Arts.
