*Days after FX confirmed a third season for Donald Glover’s “Atlanta” series, to air sometime in 2019, the actor spoke on a panel for the show on Friday (June 7) during the Emmys’ FYC screening, where he, again, turned to Kanye West to explain the tone of his show.

“I align the seasons I think, to me, like Kanye records. I feel like this is our ‘Graduation,'” he said of Season 3. “This is probably our most accessible but also the realest — an honest version of it — and I feel like the most enjoyable, like the third album,” Glover told IndieWire.

Glover and his writer-brother Stephen Glover hav mentioned the Kanye comparison in the past, likening the show’s sophomore “Robbin’ Season” to West’s sophomore “Late Registration” album.

On the panel, he added that the “Atlanta” writers are looking to top themselves with an overabundance of resources and the network’s trust now at their back. “What’s exciting to me is that we can do almost anything. And also, all the writers are very excited to try to top themselves,” Stephen explained.
