Atlanta garnered immediate attention and success and earned the multi-talented Donald Glover an Emmy. He made history as the first ever black director to ever win the award.
In a recent interview Glover did with the Hollywood Reporter, he stated of the upcoming season:
“I don’t want to go into season two [with the mindset of] ‘Enough people liked it so just keep those people,’ because then you begin to give your audience a methadone drip of bullshit that keeps them happy as opposed to, ‘We did something controversial and more people were interested.'”
