Donald Glover and his crew on FX’s Atlanta will say goodbye after season 4 of the series airs this fall.

FX CEO John Landgraf broke the news during the Television Critics Association’s virtual winter press tour on Feb. 17, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

“The new season is everything you’ve come to expect from Atlanta,” Landgraf told reporters Thursday.

Both seasons 3 and 4 have already been filmed, and the third season will premiere on March 24 — almost four years since Atlanta was last on the air.

Glover later joked during the panel that he was hoping the series would have ended after season 2. “When the conditions are right for something to happen, it happens, and when they’re not, it doesn’t,” he said. “The story was always supposed to be what it was.”

Season 3 finds “Earn” (Glover), “Alfred/”Paper Boi” (Brian Tyree Henry), “Darius” (LaKeith Stanfield) and “Van” (Zazie Beetz) in the midst of a successful European tour, as the group navigates their new surroundings, and they struggle to adjust to the newfound success they aspired to achieve. The new season takes place almost entirely in Europe.

As previously reported, the 10-episode third season marks the first time Atlanta will be available for in-season streaming on Hulu. The first two seasons are also available on the platform.

The exact premiere date for the fourth and final season will be announced later.

Since it debuted in 2016, the show has picked up five Emmy Awards — in the categories of outstanding lead actor in a comedy series for Glover; outstanding guest actor for Katt Williams; outstanding directing, outstanding cinematography, and outstanding sound editing.

Glover created and executive produces the series. Other executive producers include Paul Simms, Hiro Murai, Dianne McGunigle, and Stephen Glover. The show is produced by FX Productions and shot on location in the city of Atlanta.

According to published reports, Glover is ending his production deal with FX after signing an eight-figure contract with Amazon Studios in 2021.
