Donald Glover's Inspiration For Season 2 Of 'Atlanta'? Try 'Tiny Toons' - TCA

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.

FX's description of Season 2 doesn't really say much more than what viewers already know, but it's good to see everyone back: "In "Atlanta Robbin" Season, ' two cousins work through the Atlanta music scene in order to better their lives and the lives of their families".

The first season of Atlanta was critically acclaimed upon its debut in September 2016, with creator Donald Glover picking up two Emmy awards for his work on the show previous year.

"Tiny Toons How I Spent My Summer Vacation was broken up into eight or nine episodes but when watched together, they played like a movie. That was the inspiration for season two", Donald revealed at FX's Television Critics Association press tour on Friday to laughter, adding at one point that it was one of his favorite childhood TV shows. "You enjoy them more when they're together, but you can also enjoy them in bits", Donald said. You can find all of the things that you hear people rap about in Atlanta.

"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.

So what is "robbin' season" actually referring to? "Basically a bunch of crime happens in the city during that time", Stephen said. Robbin' Season is the time near Christmas and New Year's in Atlanta, when people have new stuff and cash from presents, and robberies increase because of that. When we were there shooting the season, my neighbor got her vehicle stolen. "It's just a very tense and desperate time". Our characters are going through [a] transition from their whole lives to where they're heading now.

Atlanta returns Thursday, March 1 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on FX.
