The second season of Donald Glover’s masterpiece Atlanta arrives to televisions and streaming services from March 1, and today FX have released a minute-long trailer which — while not giving away any actual plot points — perfectly conveys the show’s weird, dark tone.
The season is subtitled ‘Robbin’ Season’, as Donald’s brother Stephen, who is on the writing staff, recently explained:
“‘Robbin’ season’ for most people who don’t know is a time in Atlanta before Christmas time and New Years where a bunch of crime happens in that time because people have to get Christmas gifts and people need money so it’s a time when robberies go up all the time.
“You might get your package stolen off your front porch. When we were there shooting my neighbor got her car stolen off her driveway. It’s a very tense and desperate time so we wanted to make that a backdrop to our season and our characters are going through that same type of transition their whole lives to where they’re headed now. Robbin’ Season is kind of like a metaphor for all of our characters.”
We can’t wait. Check out the trailer below.
