It wasn’t a surprise that the series was picked up for a third and fourth season, but considering that season 2 took almost two years to arrive due to Glover’s busy schedule, it was expected that season 3 would take a while to air. However, the coronavirus pandemic made the wait even longer. The highly anticipated season 3 was first announced in June 2018, and Glover and the crew were scheduled to begin filming consecutively with season 4 in early 2020 before the pandemic. Season 3, which was long overdue, was pushed back from its January 2021 premiere date, causing Season 4 to be delayed as well. Now production appears to be back on track for the spring.

The news also comes with the announcement that Glover left his blanket deal with FX for an eight-figure, multi-year blanket deal with Amazon, which reportedly includes a project where Malia Obama has joined the writing team.
