Donald Glover Talks What to Expect from Second Season of ‘Atlanta’

Donald Glover and his brother Stephen Glover explained recently why they titled the second season of “Atlanta,” “Robbin Season.”

According to The Wrap, the title is a nickname of the holiday season in Atlanta, when an increase n crime occurs.

They also explained the second season of the hit show takes place during this time in Atlanta and will be a major theme for the season.

“Robbin’ Season, for most of you that I guess don’t know, is a time in Atlanta right before Christmastime and New Year’s,” the executive producer and writer explained at a Television Critics Association panel. “Basically, a bunch of crime happens in the city right during that time.”

“Because everybody has their Christmas gifts,” series creator/star — and Stephen’s big brother — Donald Glover interjected.

“Yeah, people have to give Christmas gifts and [other] people have that stuff,” Stephen continued in the street history lesson. “People just have more stuff, money. And people need money. It’s just a time that robberies go up — all kinds. You might get your package stolen off your front porch. When we were there shooting, my neighbor got her car stolen out her driveway.”

“It’s just like a very kind of tense and desperate time,” he went on. “So we wanted that to be the backdrop to this season. Our characters are going through [a] transition from their whole lives to where they’re heading now. Yeah, ‘Robbin Season’ is kind of a metaphor for all of that.”
