Atlanta Final Season Premiere Date Announced – IGN
Alongside a brand-new trailer, FX has announced that the fourth and final season of Atlanta will premiere on September 15, 2022.
The premiere date for the last season of Donald Glover’s award-winning series was announced during FX’s presentation at the 2022 virtual TCA Press Tour, per Variety. The first two episodes of Atlanta’s 10-episode final season will debut on Thursday, September 15 at 10 pm ET/PT before being made available to stream on Hulu the very next day.

To coincide with the release date announcement, FX also debuted a trailer for the final season that sees Glover’s Earn, Brian Tyree Henry’s Paper Boi, LaKeith Stanfield’s Darius, and Zazie Beetz’s Van return for more critically acclaimed adventures in their hometown where they will be stepping out for, what executive producer Hiro Murai calls, “the greatest hits season.”
“Season four, we’re back in Atlanta again and it was kind of a homecoming season and it was really lovely,” Murai previously teased. “We got to say goodbye properly to the city and the show, I think it’ll feel a little nostalgic too because I don’t think you’ve seen Atlanta during the summer since season one. It’s kind of like the greatest hits season.”
The release of Atlanta’s fourth and final season comes around four months after the finale of the third season, which premiered earlier this year, nearly four years after Atlanta’s second season aired in 2018. Both seasons three and four were originally scheduled to air in 2021, but production was reportedly postponed because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Atlanta was renewed for a fourth season in August 2019, ahead of Season 3. At the time, each season was expected to consist of eight episodes. However, at Glover’s request, the third season’s episode count was increased to 10 episodes “because things went so well in the writers room,” according to FX President John Landgraf. Consequently, the final season was also extended to 10 episodes.
