“We can’t wait to build on the success Stephen’s achieved as a writer and producer,” Schrier said. “We appreciate everything Stephen has done to make Atlanta one of the best comedies on TV, taking an even bigger role with his brother Donald on the untitled Marvel’s Deadpool animated series, and now creating his own projects with the same uncompromising artistry.”
The Deadpool series will be on FXX in 2018. Atlanta returns to FX in 2018.
Glover won two WGA Awards for the first season of Atlanta.
