Atlanta Season 3 Expected Plot
In Atlanta Season 3, we’re hoping to see more of Darius, what is it he does for Al for him to be living with him and pretty much his right-hand man. We also expect to see more of Earn and Vanessa as in the second season finale, we discovered that Earnest and Vanessa’s daughter Lottie was a gifted child. Thus, the best way for Lottie to succeed was to send her to private school.
That is why Earnest decided to use his earnings to pay for her private schooling. Earn and Vanessa are not in love and they have different lives. In this season, we expect to see how their co-parenting will get on and how will it affect their daughter.
Atlanta Season 3 Expected Cast
As for the cast in this season, all the main characters will return including Brain Tyree Henry, Lakeith Stanfield, and Zazie Beetz playing their respective characters as Alfred a.k.a. Paper Boi, Darius, and Van. And of course, Glover will return as Earnest “Earn” Marks.
Other Season 3 cast members are likely to include Khris Davis as Tracy, Alfred’s recently paroled friend who clashes with Earn, and RJ Walker as Clark County, who is another rapper but no official cast has been announced yet.
Atlanta Season 2 Recap
In the second season of this comedy-drama series, there is still a struggle to turn our Paper boi into a major rap star. Something that Earn struggles to do, if it isn’t Al’s attitude, is him trying to think and work with someone who is used to quick money. And because of that, alongside Al’s friend Sierra planting a seed into his head, so comes the question if Earn should be his manager anymore.
After that, we see Tracy crashing into Earn’s place and disturbing him as she is very modern and urban. We also get to see Darius and what he is when he isn’t with Earn or Papar boi. Then, there is the sole lady of Atlanta Van. Still unemployed, still unsure about her relationship with Earn, and just trying to figure things out. We’ll see more of their relationship in the upcoming season and how Paper boi will figure things out for his career.
How many episodes are there in Atlanta Season 2?
The second season has 11 episodes in total.
