Atlanta has released a first teaser for their fourth and final season, with Earn, Paper Boi, Darius and Van all returning to the A.
Atlanta is going back to their roots in a new teaser for their fourth and final season. Released on Friday (July 22), the 45-second clip of the FX series shows Earn (Donald Glover), Paper Boi (Brian Tyree Henry), Darius (LaKeith Stanfield) and Van (Zazie Beetz) return to the liquor store from “The Big Bang” season one episode. Easter eggs are also seen throughout the clip, from Darius riding the “invisible car” from “The Club” episode, the mysterious alligator from season two’s “Alligator Man,” the ancient egg from “Teddy Perkins” and Zan from “The Streisand Effect.”

In February, series creator Donald Glover confirmed that the show would end in 2022 during the Television Critics Association winter press tour.
“Death is natural,” Glover said. “I feel like when the conditions are right for something, they happen, and when the conditions aren’t right, they don’t happen. I don’t feel any longevity. Because then things start to get weird.”
Henry and Beetz also spoke on being satisfied with the decision. “I was a little emotional,” said Beetz, “but I agree with Donald that we’re ending on what feels like a peak and not letting it peter out. I think the best thing is knowing when to end it, and knowing when to move on with things.”
“Atlanta feels like an institution,” Henry added. “You go to high school for four years, you go to college for four years, this was our own graduation of going somewhere bigger. I am so deeply connected to these people. That was the greatest gift of doing this show. If we decide to come back together when we’re 65, with arthritis medication and our walkers, we probably will because we’re all connected for the rest of our lives.”
The final season of Atlanta will air on FX in September, with next-day streaming available on Hulu. The first three seasons of the show are available on Hulu now.
