FX is getting the ball rolling on 2022 premiere dates.
The cabler has confirmed premiere dates for Atlanta Season 3 and Snowfall Season 5.
Atlanta fans have been waiting since May 2018 for fresh episodes, and the waiting game concludes Thursday, March 24, 2022.
Two episodes will air from 10/9c that night, with episodes being made available for the first time the next day on Hulu.
While the wait between seasons has been long for the Donald Glover comedy, a fourth season has already been written, so we could be looking at a premiere date in 2023.
“What more can be said about Atlanta than the critical acclaim and accolades that Donald, Paul, Dianne, Stephen, and Hiro have earned for two exceptional seasons of what is clearly one of the best shows on television,” FX said in 2020 when the show nabbed a fourth-season renewal.
“This group of collaborators and cast have created one of the most original, innovative stories of this generation and we are proud to be their partners.”
Atlanta is produced by executive produced by Glover, Paul Simms, Dianne McGunigle, Stephen Glover, and Hiro Murai.
Snowfall, meanwhile, will premiere its fifth season on Wednesday, February 23rd at 10 p.m. ET/PT on FX and stream on Hulu the next day.
The premiere will include the first two episodes. FX will run a new teaser trailer in ESPN and ABC's slate of NBA games on Christmas Day.
The series was FX's most-watched series of 2021 inclusive of all forms of linear and streaming viewing.
"Snowfall is enjoying a justly deserved burst of success with season 4, and we're excited to follow it up with another explosive season early next year," said Eric Schrier, President, FX Entertainment.
"Our thanks to everyone on the creative team, the remarkable cast and crew who make Snowfall one of the best series on television."
