FX chief John Landgraf revealed at the Television Critics Association winter press tour on Monday morning that the Donald Glover series is behind schedule.
When the network renewed Atlanta for a third season last June, it was expected to return in 2019 — but it’s become clear that’s no longer possible.
“I don’t know whether we’ll have Atlanta or not. The writers are back working right now, thank God,” said Landgraf, before PR boss John Solberg confirmed that “it won’t be for this Emmy cycle.” Joked Landgraf to the reporters in the Langham Hotel ballroom: “If you wanna see me cry, you can just come backstage.”
