Donald Glover’s ‘Atlanta’ Finally set to air in Australia
One of the best TV shows of 2016 will finally be made available in Australia (without the use of a sneaky VPN).
Following on from its incredibly well deserved (yet unexpected) win for Best TV Series, Comedy or Musical at yesterday’s Golden Globes, SBS announced within hours that Donald Glover’s Atlanta will be “coming soon” to the free-to-air network, as well as SBS Viceland and SBS on Demand.

The comedy-drama stars Glover (who also picked up the award for Best Actor in a TV Series, Comedy or Musical) along with Brian Tyree Henry as a pair of aspiring rappers, and following its premiere in the US this past September, a second season of Atlanta has already been confirmed.
SBS has yet to officially confirm a release, although they did tell Junkee that the show would “likely be included in part of a larger programming line-up regarding race issues.”
