The latest season hasn't started filming yet.
Donald Glover took the television world by storm with his hit show on FX "Atlanta." For those who don't know, the show centers around Paper Boi, a struggling up and coming rapper in Atlanta, who is being managed by his cousin Earn. The show has become a huge hit, and so far only two seasons of the show have aired. There was a 15-month gap in between seasons 1 and 2, and it looks as though there is going to be another big gap between season 2 and 3.
In an interview with IndieWire, "Atlanta" actress Zazie Beetz spoke about the filming cycle for the latest season and how much of it is up in the air.

“Ideally we would be shooting now; that’s not happening,” she Beetz said. “Everybody’s schedules are sort of all over the place — they’re hoping for spring sometime, but no dates. Everybody’s busy, and Donald [Glover] had his tour in the fall, and that doesn’t lend itself to time for scriptwriting. I know that they have a couple of episodes together, but I don’t have any real information.”
This news will probably come as a bit of a disappointment for those who were looking forward to the next season, but it does seem as though it will happen eventually. Stay tuned for any updates on the development of the third season.
