Why 'Atlanta' Season 2 Is Called 'Robbin Season'

"You laugh, but..." Glover and the panel joked onstage during the show's panel at the Television Critics' Association's winter press tour Friday.

As in Season 1, it sounds like Season 2 will continue to blend the absurd and the hilarious with tackling real issues, particularly things the writers have personally experienced. We really tried to just devolve what television was. After a collective chuckle from the assembled critics, Glover added, "It's a good show".

When asked if he could spill some plot details, Glover quipped, "It's better if we could just talk about Tiny Toons".

Glover explained that he didn't want to repeat what happened in Season 1, and Season 2 will tell a larger story in pieces - How I Spent My Summer Vacation was a film divided into bits that could be enjoyed individually.

"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. "Season two, we have a general idea of how we wanted the season to feel like". But that doesn't mean there will be new titles for every season moving forward, either. "We picked a lane a little bit more".

"It's a time in Atlanta, before Christmastime and New Year's". Says Stephen Glover, "Atlanta has a lot going on and part of that is upward mobility of the people who live there". You might get your package stolen off your front porch. "When we were there shooting, my neighbor got her auto stolen out her driveway". "It's an intense and desperate time". "You enjoy them more when they're together", said Glover about his episodic structure for season 2. "It's a very tense and desperate time, so we wanted to make that a backdrop to the season, and our characters are going through the same desperate transition from their old lives to where they are now".

Along with FX's announcement that Atlanta will return on Thursday, March 1 at 10 p.m. ET, the network has announced a brand new moniker for the sophomore season.
