As the second season of Donald Glover‘s Atlanta nears its premiere date, another teaser for the series has been released.
The thirty second clip finds Glover falling to the ground in various parts of Atlanta, the scene soundtracked by Yellow Days‘ “Gap in the Clouds.”
“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,” Stephen said during a panel at the 2018 Winter Television Critics Association press tour. “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.”
The brothers also spoke on how ’90s animated TV series Tiny Toon Adventures and its “How I Spent My Vacation” special played a pivotal role for the second season.
“It’s a really good show,” Donald said. “You laugh but that was a really good mini group that they did. It was our favorite as kids…You enjoy them more when they’re together but you also enjoy them in bits.”
