“We haven’t locked down the scheduling for season 3 yet as it just finished shooting—it’s shot primarily in Europe,” Landraf revealed during the executive session. “It’s in post-production and it’s a lengthy post-production process and part of that is because they’re currently in production of season 4 in Atlanta. All the scripts for that season have been written and I absolutely adore the scripts for both seasons.”
He continued, “The reason I can’t lock down a date right now is that it’s being driven by Donald Glover and Hiro Morai’s schedule and availability and the length of post, both for season 3 while in the process of producing season 4. I did list is as one of the things coming back in the first half of 2022, that is our anticipation. I think we’ll be able to lock down an actual date for 3 and maybe for both cycles within the next couple of months.”
Glover was back to shooting seasons 3 and 4 in Paris and Amsterdam in January after production was shut down the prior March due to the pandemic.
Atlanta has won five Primetime Emmys: two during its first season for Glover as comedy director and lead actor comedy series, and in its second season it notched comedy sound-editing, single-camera (half-hour) series cinematography, and guest comedy actor for Katt Williams.
