For their newest cover at The Hollywood Reporter, Donald Glover re-emerges to discuss his current career path and defining works. One thing that has been circling Glover has been, “When will we get a new season of Atlanta“? As writer Lacey Rose goes on to discover, season 2 of Atlanta begins filming this September which is earlier than previously reported. Check out an excerpt of the piece as we even hear how his character on the show will develop.
But before any new project can be fully realized, Glover will need to deliver a second season of Atlanta, which begins production in September. It will be a different experience for him, in part because he has added the perspective of a father since the last time he was in the show’s writers room. Though he’s fiercely protective of his family’s privacy — he refers to the mother of his 1½-year-old son as his “partner,” but declines to name her or the son, and wants to keep their life together out of print — he acknowledges that he’s now better able to relate to his character, an Ivy League dropout struggling to balance his aspirations as a rap manager and his responsibilities as a parent. “I don’t spend as much time with [my son] as I want to,” he says, “but it’s because I want to give him everything.”
