It’s almost over for Earn Marks, Paper Boi, Van Keefer, and Darius. FX’s award-winning comedy Atlanta is about to end with its fourth and final season, which will premiere on September 15th.
Created by Donald Glover, the show follows Princeton dropout Earn, played by Glover, who becomes a manager to his cousin and rapper, Alfred, a.k.a. Paper Boi. He expects to reconnect with his ex-girlfriend, Van, and earn back his respect. Lakeith Stanfield plays the character of Paper Boi’s eccentric right-hand man, Darius.
During the Television Critics Association’s (TCA) Atlanta panel on August 2nd, Glover announced in front of the reporters that season four is the most grounded one till now. “It explores people more than we have before because, like right now, we are kind of living in a time where you don’t give people the benefit of the doubt,” he said. “We ended up being a show about people whereas early on it was about ‘Do people matter?” he added.
The trailer indicates that the central crew will return to their titular hometown after their European adventures in season three. So, this brings about new challenges as Earn and Van try to figure out where they are romantical while Alfred makes advancements in his career.
