Two weeks after a first trailer gave us a trip down memory lane (or, in this case, memory Peachtree Street), Atlanta is back with the first full trailer for season four.
We get a few glimpses of the situations the main characters find themselves in – including what appears to be Paper Boy performing at the Bat Mitzvah, Earn and Van bringing their daughter, Lottie, in a fishing trip, and a scene of Paper Boy in the studio with a fake Mason Ramsey voice. We also show what appears to be Earn in therapy, looking irritable despite claims that his work life is going well.
As the trailer progresses, tensions rise dramatically after Earn says “and then everything falls apart.” The Atlanta water boys are standing in Earn’s car rapping to him, refusing to leave, someone shoots Paper Boy in a jewelry store, and there’s a tease about his potential cameo. D’Angelo. Most importantly, there’s a glimpse of Katt Williams, confirming his return as Earn and Al’s uncle after his Emmy-winning turn in season two. (No word yet for a Crocodile Trainer rendition.)
The trailer also makes substantial use of Cousteau’s “Last Good Day of the Year,” a dreamy retro pop song about the ebb and flow of time that feels very fitting for this climactic moment. The nostalgic music, although this trailer doesn’t delve into the show’s history like the trailer does, recalls “Teddy Perkins,” “The Club,” and “BAN,” among the episodes featured by viewers. other fan favorites. In an interview with The AV Club, Atlanta writer Stefani Robinson has hinted at a return of characters from the show’s previous seasons, implying that it will be culled from its history for this concluding chapter.
Atlanta season four saw the cast return to the city of the same name after the previous season largely took place in Europe. Glover’s brother and co-producer, Stephen told GQ earlier this year, that while he’s supported season 3, Glover and executive producer Hiro Murai “always said season 4 would be better. They were really tall in season 4”. As for what to expect from the season, in general, the younger Glover said “Season 3 is the maximum season. And then it was like, okay, let’s go home to Atlanta right now. Let’s go back to where we feel comfortable, or where we should feel comfortable. So that’s the idea that you see the world and your mind is greatly expanded. And now it’s time to go back [home]. “
The final season begins airing on September 15.
