Atlanta Season 1 is just three episodes deep and FX has already renewed the hit series for Season 2. According to Deadline, the network has ordered 10 more episodes. No release date has been set. Atlanta earned numerous favorable reviews, and the first episodes were the most-watched premiere episode of any basic cable comedy in the last three years.

Glover plays Princeton dropout Earnest ‘Earn’ Marks, who has moved home to Atlanta and now works at the airport. He stays with the mother of his baby, Van, though their relationship is complicated since she’s interested in other people. Earn learns that his cousin, Alfred aka Paper Boi, just released a hot mixtape. He becomes his manager and the two, along with their friend Darius, try to navigate the best path to success. Atlanta is fantastical and funny, but stays grounded and raw by always circling back to Earn, a young black man figuring out how to take care of his family and figure out his purpose in life at the same time.

Episode 4, “The Streisand Effect,” airs on FX tonight at 10 p.m. Take a look at the teaser and synopsis below.

Paper Boi is tripping about this blog stuff but it's just Twitter bruh. It's just entertainment. Somebody needs to get Earn some money. Skreetmoney Worldwide man.
