Donald Glover on How 'Atlanta' Season 2 Is Like 'Tiny Toon Adventures'

Atlanta 2017 Emmys

We don't know exactly why Glover made a decision to call it "Robbin Season", but considering Season 2 is expected to be even greater than the first, the title seems appropriate.

"Robbin Season is a time in Atlanta, like right before Christmas and New Year's", he said. "That was the inspiration for season two", Donald revealed at FX's Television Critics Association press tour on Friday to laughter, adding at one point that it was one of his favorite childhood TV shows.

The first season of Atlanta was critically acclaimed upon its debut in September 2016, with creator Donald Glover picking up two Emmy awards for his work on the show previous year.

The hit show's second coming will don a new name, Atlanta Robbin' Season, in 10 episodes.

Donald Glover said the second season's structure was inspired by 1992's movie-length, direct-to-video "Tiny Toon Adventures: How I Spent My Vacation". "Basically a bunch of crime happens in the city during that time", Stephen said. "You might get your package stolen from the front porch", he explained, adding that his neighbor got her auto stolen out of the driveway when they were shooting the second season. But in recent weeks, he's been finally filming the second season of the show with ten more episodes planned. "We just went into this like, 'Why are we going to do season 2? That information, that social mobility, the reason why it's like that, is there is no information being passed down", Donald Glover said.

So how does the team behind Atlanta top Season 1? "We didn't look back and think, 'What are the things that will make people happy?' We really just tried to beat ourselves and always just kept trying to do something that was different from the first season".

Fellow executive producer Stephen Glover explained the connection. It's a very intense and desperate time.

The former returns Thursday, March 1 and has a new title: "Atlanta Robbin' Season".
