Donald Glover posted a photo of himself, Brian Tyree Henry, LaKeith Stanfield and Zazie Beetz on his Instagram account that reads “Day 0 S3 ATL”. “The photo – which is currently the only photo on Glover’s account – looks like it was taken on an old phone with poor image quality, but after nearly three years since the last episode of Atlanta, every footage from the FX series is an interesting watch.
Atlanta’s second season ended in 2018, a season that won thirteen Emmy nominations at the show and won three. As previously announced, Atlanta will be shooting seasons 3 and 4 respectively, and production began in Europe late last month. However, with the release of Glover, it seems that filming for the long-awaited new season has finally begun.
However, since the second season of Atlanta, the cast of the Glover series has grown in popularity. Glover himself has starred in famous films such as The Lion King and Solo: A Star Wars Story and won four Grammys for his song This Is America under the name Childish Gambino. Henry has appeared in films such as Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, Joker, Godzilla vs. Kong and will soon be taking part in Marvel’s Eternals. Beetz also appeared in Joker and played dominoes in Deadpool 2. LaKeith Stanfield starred in Uncut Gems, Knives Out and recently received his first Oscar nominations for his role as William O’Neal in Judas and The Black Messiah. When Atlanta returns, the cast will be bigger than ever.
