Donald Glover’s Atlanta is, quite simply, one of the finest television shows made in the past decade, and considering we are in the golden age of television (and the ice age of everything else), that’s quite a feat.
Well, season two returns to screens on March 1, and during the Golden Globes today, the first trailer was premiered.
The coming season is subtitled ‘Robbin’ Season’, which has a specific meaning, as Donald’s brother Stephen, who is on the writing staff, 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.”
