The show will now air under the name "Atlanta Robbin' Season", according to reports.

Of course, Glover has been pretty busy since then, including filming the young Han Solo movie for Disney and watching his pop career as Childish Gambino score even bigger heights.

First of all, Atlanta Season 2 releases March 1, and that's so close that I might have an anxiety attack. Rounding out the cast is Darius (played by Lakeith Lee Stanfield), Alfred's right-hand man and Van (Zazie Beetz) is Earn's best friend and the mother of Earn's daughter.

Executive producer Paul Simms said, "This is one of those things that sounds like a TCA joke that someone makes, but for nine months now, I've been hearing Donald say, "Well, did you ever see 'Tiny Toons"?" Earn (Donald Glover) continues to work the city's music scene, trying to get cousin Paper Boi's (Brian Tyree Henry) off the ground. "People have to give Christmas gifts and people add stuff and you need money, so it's a time when robbery goes up".

Atlanta is no ordinary series, and Glover as showrunner and head writer has been able to capture the spirit of his characters in unique ways, while also serving as a tribute to his hometown of Atlanta. That culture is drenched all over it. So how do you top that in season two? That life is really there.

The network confirmed the news on Friday, setting the critically acclaimed comedy for a 10 p.m. EST premiere. But Donald didn't want the success to change the series or force them to do the same thing in season two.

"Mayans MC", starring Edward James Olmos, JD Pardo, Sarah Bolger, Clayton Cardenas, Richard Cabral, Michael Irby, Raoul Trujillo, Antonio Jaramillo and Carla Baratta, is "set in a post Jax Teller world, where EZ Reyes, fresh out of prison, is a prospect in the Mayan MC charter on the Cali/Mexi border".

"If you [look back at what you did before] as a producer of television or any sort of art, you tend to be risk adverse, which is really bad for art", Glover said.
