FX President John Landgraf explained how the third and fourth seasons of the series was coming together during the Television Critics Association in Pasadena, California, on Thursday.

“Initially, his intent was to make 16 episodes that would be broken up into eight and eight. He came back to us recently because things went so well in the writers room and asked if we would support 10 episodes. We said yes. So the first of those two seasons will be 10,” Landgraf said according to IndieWire.

Landgraf then went to say that the show is still being filmed in Atlanta, but that a “good chunk of it shoots outside the United States.”

“The plan is that one would air I think in January, so early next year,” he said. “And then the other would air, I think, later that year, somewhere around the fall. There’ll be less than a year break between them. I can’t tell you how excited I am.”

In August, Atlanta was renewed for a fourth season even before production for its third season had begun.

“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,” Eric Schrier, President of FX Entertainment, said at the time. “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.”
