It looks like Atlanta is already planning a fall return next year and a second season on FX. Created by Donald Glover, it scored the best premiere numbers for any basic cable primetime scripted comedy in over three years in the 18-49 demographic and the most watched telecast of a new comedy series in adults 18-49 since April 2014. After its first episode debut and record-breaking ratings on FX, three million people tuned in for the series premiere and last week’s third episode, which aired on Sept. 13, which brought in 1.3 million viewers, according to “Live 3″estimates.
The series follows Earn Marks (Glover) and his life in Atlanta where he attempts to redeem himself to his loved ones after dropping out of Princeton. Earn and his cousin Alfred “Paper Boi” Miles ultimately work their way through the music scene in Atlanta to improve their lives.
“It is clear to us that ‘Atlanta’ [has] struck a nerve with viewers, which is a credit to Donald Glover’s vision” FX Presidents of Original Programming Nick Grad and Eric Schrier told Complex.
The first season currently airs Tuesdays at 10 p.m on FX.
