While the excitement surrounding the show's second season continues to build, fans will have to try and stay patient for longer than they were expecting.
In a recent press release, FX announced that Donald Glover's hit show won't return for its second season until 2018.
The announcement came during a statement that the network had released an overall deal with Glover, ensuring that FX will broadcast any new properties from the actor/writer/producer/musician.
The release said that the delay in season two was due to Donald Glover's busy production schedule - which Star Wars fans totally understand. The actor has been cast as the young version of Lando Calrissian - Han Solo's smuggling friend. Glover will star in the Han Solo standalone film from Star Wars alongside Alden Ehrenreich, who will play the title character.
The press release showed that the network has a lot of faith in Glover as a creator, but also that they think very highly of his work. The network released this statement:
"Donald is a remarkable artist, effortlessly shifting from actor to writer, producer, director and musician to create one amazing project after another," Grad said. "Atlanta was just the beginning, the breakout comedy of the year and a series revered as much for its originality as its honest look at the experience of being aspiring, young and black in that legendary city. We're proud to partner with Donald in an overall deal that will allow him to continue turning his creative vision into incredible television."
