Production for both season three and four is scheduled to begin next spring.

Atlanta, Donald Glover‘s critically-acclaimed TV series, has been renewed for a fourth season even before production for its third season has begun.

In a report from Deadline, Eric Schrier, President of FX Entertainment, shared the news during FX’s presentation at the TCA summer press tour.

“What more can be said about Atlanta than the critical acclaim and accolades that Donald, Paul, Dianne, Stephen and Hiro have earned for two exceptional seasons of what is clearly one of the best shows on television,” Schrier said. “This group of collaborators and cast have created one of the most original, innovative stories of this generation and we are proud to be their partners.”

Both production for season three and four of Atlanta will begin next spring. Both will be eight episodes each.

Atlanta has won five Emmy Awards as well as two Golden Globe Awards, two AFI awards, Peabody, PGA, WGA, TCA, NAACP and Critics’ Choice Awards.

John Landgraf, FX’s CEO, previously talked about Atlanta‘s season three delay.

“I don’t know whether we’ll have Atlanta or not. The writers are back working right now, thank God,” Landgraf said at the time before adding:

“As you might imagine, Donald Glover is sort of the king of all media, and he just has had an incredibly complicated life. He’s had personal things he’s had to deal with, from injuries to other things I’d rather not say publicly that just have to do with not with his personal life but his extended family. So I think one of the things that is just a reality of television today is you have to wait. We have so many things now that don’t cycle back on a regular basis…From my standpoint, I wish for the fans as well as for us that we could get everything back on an annual basis but, again, you just have to make a decision about quantity over quality at a certain point — and we’re just erring on the side of quality.”
