Atlanta Season 3 trailer takes the bunch of friends on a cross continental adventure in the streets on cities like Paris and Amsterdam and checking the boxes off the travel bucket lists, while struggling with all the issues at hand.

Atlanta Season 3 Plot

At the end of last season, we saw Earn, Alfred, and Darius preparing to fly off to Europe after leaving Clark County behind who was earlier supposed to be a part of the entire plan. Back there, Clark got into trouble with the security due to Earn as he puts a gun in his bag which he himself forgot to remove from his luggage. On the plane, Alfred tells Earn that he saw the whole incident but anyhow they are all they’ve got.

There are a lot of possible scenarios that can take place in the upcoming season including the struggles of co-parenting between Earn and Van when Earn is in Europe and Van is moving in with her mother. A feud between Clark and Earn can be expected taking into account Earn’s trick to save himself at the airport. While the guy gang in on a tour, Van’s side of the story can be a highlight as well including her struggles with life and decisions.
