What Will Happen To ‘Atlanta’ As Donald Glover Leaves FX For Amazon?

Donald Glover has inked an eight-figure deal with Amazon. But what does that mean not just for Atlanta and its upcoming third and fourth seasons, as well as any future seasons Glover might want to do?

On Wednesday, it was announced that Donald Glover now has a multiple-year, eight-figure overall deal with Amazon. According to the Hollywood Reporter, “The pact is believed to include a content channel of sorts that will spotlight Glover’s work and other curated content on Amazon’s Prime Video hub.” In taking up this new deal, Glover has ended his deal with FX. So, where does that leave his critically-acclaimed Atlanta series? Well, according to that same report, the series will be unaffected, with the third and fourth season going into production in March.

“The show’s future beyond season four has not yet been determined as Glover is said to have a carve-out to continue work on Atlanta should that be something he wants to do,” the report noted.

Among other details revealed about Glover’s Amazon deal is that he’ll be executive producing other projects, including “a potential series called Hive, which is rumored to revolve around a Beyoncé-like figure and stem from writer Janine Nabers.” Malia Obama will reportedly be a part of this project’s writing room, too.

News of Glover’s deal comes after he announced that he and Fleabag actor Phoebe Waller-Bridge would be starring in a Mr. and Mrs. Smith series for Amazon Prime Video. The series is slated to premiere on the streaming service in 2022.
