Donald Glover‘s Emmy-winning FX series Atlanta is finally ramping back up next year.
The critically acclaimed show was supposed to air its third season last year, but scheduling conflicts caused it to be pushed back. Since its stars, including Glover, Brian Tyree Henry, Zazie Beetz, and Lakeith Stanfield, have become some of the most in-demand actors working in Hollywood these days, it makes sense it’d be a bit tougher than usual to get all of their schedules to line up. Eventually plans changed, and word came out that the third and fourth seasons would shoot back to back and have shorter episode counts.
Now John Landgraf, the head of FX Networks, says the show will get back in front of cameras again in 2021 to shoot both of the new seasons. Read More »

The new version of Pet Sematary is a little more intimate than the average horror movie.

Especially in the first hour, the filmmakers take their time to make the Creed family a believable unit with both joy and pain in their lives.
Kolsch and Widmyer enlisted exceptional actors to bring these characters to life again, including actor, writer, and filmmaker, Amy Seimetz. Seimetz, who directed Sun Don’t Shine and co-created Starz’s The Girlfriend Experience, first read the book when she was eight years old, so you could say she’s been preparing for this role a long time. Recently, she told us about performing her favorite passage from the book, working with Ridley Scott, and her moving experience at a Childish Gambino concert.

Atlanta has become Donald Glover’s most popular creative endeavor, and that’s saying a lot considering his music career and his roles in Community and Solo: A Star Wars Story. It takes a lot longer for him to produce a season of Atlanta though, because Glover creates, produces, cowrites and stars on the show.
