preview for 4 Facts About Donald Glover

The fourth and final season of Donald Glover’s Atlanta is near. That’s right, for the last time, the creator and star will be reprising his role as Earn in the Emmy-award winning show later this year. Just months after Season Three ended—a batch of episodes that deeply divided both fans and critics—a new teaser for Season Four has dropped and things are, as they say, in motion.

Here’s everything we know about Atlanta Season Four.

Atlanta Season Four will be a nostalgic goodbye.

When we last left our leading characters, Earn (Donald Glover), Van (Zazie Beetz), Paper Boi (Brian Tyree Henry), Darius (Lakeith Stanfield) were all engulfed in their own weird European adventures–involving drugs, existential crises and… cannibalism?

It’s hard to tell if we can expect similarly bizarre storylines going forward, but it does seem that for the final season, the foursome will be returning to their Georgia roots. Speaking with The Hollywood Reporter, director and producer Hiro Murai revealed the return to the show’s namesake city. “Season Four, we’re back in Atlanta again and it was kind of a homecoming season and it was really lovely,” he said, “We got to say goodbye properly to the city and the show, I think it’ll feel a little nostalgic too because I don’t think you’ve seen Atlanta during the summer since season one. It’s kind of like the greatest hits season.”

Glover has also been out and about teasing what’s to come—mainly the good times ahead. Speaking with Variety, the actor and creator revealed that the premise for season for is simply to “have more fun.” “Once you go through that cycle, you realize, oh, we did Season Four like Season One, which was, act like you’re going to get canceled!” he said.

Who is starring in Atlanta Season Four?

To close out the show, we can expect to see more of Donald Glover as Earn, Brian Tyree Henry as Alfred/Paper Boi, Zazie Beetz as Van, and LaKeith Stanfield as Darius. Given that Season Three also featured some pretty surprising cameos from Chet Hanks, Alexander Skarsgård, Liam Neeson and more, it’s highly likely the Atlanta team has some tricks up their sleeves in terms of famous faces to come.

When does Atlanta Season Four release?

Looks like we won’t have to be waiting another four years for the new season to premiere. In fact, we won’t really be waiting that long at all—the final season of Atlanta debuts in September. Check out the teaser below.
