Woohoo: FX Renews Hilarious New Series ‘Atlanta’ For Second Season After Two Weeks Ratings Success

Posted September 20, 2016


I’ve been telling everyone and their mom about my fave new series, ‘Atlanta‘ which stars rapper Childish Gambino aka Donald Glover. The series premiered on FX just about two weeks ago and already has become a major success for the network, as I previously told you HERE.

Well now following two weeks of great ratings and major acclaim from fans and critics alike, the series has been given the green light for a second season. Via The Hollywood Reporter:

FX is showing early confidence in Atlanta and Better Things.

After airing just a handful of episodes each, the basic-cable network has renewed the critically praised comedies starring Donald Glover and Pamela Adlon, respectively, for sophomore seasons, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. Both will be back with 10-episode second seasons, up from eight for Better Thingsand nine for Atlanta.

“It’s really gratifying to launch two new comedies that have received overwhelming critical acclaim right out of the gate and that are emblematic of FX’s award-winning brand,” Nick Grad and Eric Schrier, presidents of original programming, FX Networks and FX Productions, said Tuesday in a statement. “It is clear to us that Atlanta and Better Things have struck a nerve with viewers, which is a credit to Donald Glover’s vision for Atlanta and Pamela Adlon’s vision for Better Things. They, along with their spectacular casts, writers and directors, have created exceptional shows that we are incredibly proud to produce.”

Atlanta, which has been a passion project for Community grad Glover, has been in the works for the past few years before launching to what FX says is the best premiere of any basic-cable primetime scripted debut in more than three years among the all-important adults 18-49 demo. The series has built on its premiere audience in nearly every demo since its debut and ranks as the most-watched telecast of a new comedy series in adults 18-49 since April 2014. With three days of delayed viewing, Atlanta’s third episode collected 1.3 million among adults under 50 — that’s up 23 percent from Week 2 (which was up 16 percent from its debut).

Kudos to the cast and crew of ‘Atlanta’ and we will be tuning in to see what the series has in store for us next.
