Donald Glover Explains ATLANTA's Season 2 Title, ROBBIN' SEASON

Donald Glover Explains ATLANTA's Season 2 Title, ROBBIN' SEASON

FX was mum on what that title actually means, although much more will be revealed later on Friday when Glover and the rest of the show's cast and producers meet with reporters at the Television Critics Association press tour. Atlanta Robbin' Season, aka Atlanta season two premieres on FX on Thursday, March 1, 2018, at 10:00pm ET/PT. We really tried to just devolve what television was.

Donald Glover said the second season's structure was inspired by 1992's movie-length, direct-to-video "Tiny Toon Adventures: How I Spent My Vacation". "Are you going to eat or be eaten?" said Donald Glover about the series' motif on upward mobility.

"If you [look back at what you did before] as a producer of television or any sort of art, you tend to be risk adverse, which is really bad for art", Glover said. "Glover explained that when he was given the opportunity to make a show for FX, "we had 30 minutes to do whatever we want"; it wasn't about upsetting sitcom formulas or tropes". Before he left to shoot the Lucasfilm blockbuster, however, Glover assembled his writers room and got the scripts for Atlanta Season 2 ready to go, so when he wrapped Solo last fall, he was ready to move right into production. "We picked a lane a little bit more". "Basically a bunch of crime happens in the city during that time". "People have to give Christmas gifts and people add stuff and you need money, so it's a time when robbery goes up". You might get your package stolen off your front porch. "It's an intense and desperate time". "So we kind of made that the backdrop to the season and our characters are kind of going through that same desperate kind of transition".

We don't know exactly why Glover made a decision to call it "Robbin Season", but considering Season 2 is expected to be even greater than the first, the title seems appropriate.

Yes, the Looney Tunes 1990s spinoff Tiny Toon Adventures was a major inspiration for creator Donald Glover in season 2 of his FX series Atlanta which is getting the title of Atlanta Robbin.
