The first trailer for Atlanta Season 4 is here, giving us our best look yet at the latest installment of the show. Earlier, an out of place teaser was released, but that didn’t reveal much in terms of the new season’s plot.
While Season 3 took place and was filmed in Europe (in cities like Amsterdam, London, and Paris), Season 4 sees Earn (Glover), Alfred (Brian Tyree Henry), Darius (LaKeith Stanfield), and Van (Zazie Beetz). ) return to the titular city of Georgia. There are also some references to earlier seasons, with kids harassing Earn in his car and trying to sell him bottled water.
Glover said at a news conference this week that season four is the show’s “most grounded” run that often dabbles in the surreal (via the hollywood reporter (opens in a new tab)). “I think it explores people more than we’ve ever done before because I feel like right now we’re living in a time where you just don’t give people the benefit of the doubt.”
Season 3 debuted in March and is nominated for three Emmy Awards, including Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series for Glover. The season finale only saw Glover’s Earn appear in a post-credits scene, with the episode focusing on Van. However, season 4 looks like all four main cast members will return to center stage.
Atlanta season 4 will premiere on FX and Hulu on September 15; keep an eye out for the UK release date. While we wait, check out our picks for the other best new TV shows coming our way this year.
