New Season Of ‘Atlanta’ Takes Inspiration From This 90s Cartoon

Published

on

Last year, Donald Glover’s Atlanta won Emmy awards for Outstanding Director and Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series. For both awards, Glover was the recipient. That’s why it might surprise many that there are huge changes coming to the new season of the show. One of the most shocking: the name of the show itself.

Atlanta’s New Name

For its second season, the show will be retitled Atlanta Robbin’ Season. Not many details are known regarding the reasoning behind the change, but “Robbin’ Season” is a real-life phenomenon that could have interesting storytelling potential.

It refers to the time in Atlanta before Christmas, where there is an increase in crime, particularly theft. Desperation can reach boiling points as people struggle to afford gifts and other expenses. The subject matter seems heavy, considering the season was hugely inspired by an unexpected 90’s cartoon.

The Source Of Inspiration

The major inspiration for Atlanta Robbin’ Season was a direct-to-video film from Tiny Toon Adventures called How I Spent My Summer Vacation. The 90’s cartoon series followed the stories of child Looney Toons characters. Don’t expect any cartoon bunnies in the next season of Atlanta, though. The inspiration was in regards to something else.

The season’s overall narrative structure will derive from the Tiny Toons film. Each episode will tell its own story, but contribute to something larger overall. Donald Glover described it as, “You enjoy them more when they’re together, but you can also enjoy them in little bits.” An executive producer for the show provided further details.

A Different Kind Of Storytelling

Executive producer Stephen Glover explained, “The episodes were broken up in eight or nine episodes, but you watched them all together and they were a movie, and they would play them during the summer together or in installments. We took that idea of a whole story, but being told in a bunch of little parts that will be shown that maybe seem like they’re their own thing, but they all are one thing.”

Sounds like Atlanta Robbin’ Season will be just as innovative and groundbreaking as the show’s highly-praised debut. The show returns to FX this March.
