FX’s critically acclaimed show “Atlanta” is coming to an end.
Network CEO John Landgraf announced the fourth season would be its last during a virtual press tour on Thursday, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The announcement came two months after FX released a teaser for the show’s highly anticipated third season in December. The show’s third and fourth were written together and filmed back-to-back.
“Atlanta” Season 3 is set to premiere on Hulu on March 24, and Season 4 hits screens in the fall.
Donald Glover, the series creator who stars on the show as Earn, discussed the decision to wrap up the five-time Emmys series with reporters on Thursday.
“When the conditions are right for something to happen, it happens, and when it’s not, it doesn’t,” he said, according to THR. “History was always meant to be what it was.”
“Atlanta” has earned a total of 22 Emmy nominations since its premiere in 2016. It made television history in 2017 when Glover became the first black man to win an Emmy for directing comedy.
The show also stars Brian Tyree Henry (Paper Boi), LaKeith Stanfield (Darius) and Zazie Beetz (Van).
The upcoming third season marks the return of the series after three years. The hiatus was due, in part, to a production shutdown caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
Glover noted Thursday that he would consider revisiting “Atlanta” in the future.
“If there’s a reason to do it, but it always depends,” he said. “I like to keep the options open.”
