Atlanta is back on screens this week for its fourth and final season. After a four-year break between seasons 2 and 3, the show is wrapping up at lightspeed having only just pushed out season three in March of this year. This season sees the gang making their way back to Georgia for a homecoming of sorts after their European tour comes to a close. But is it true that you can never go back home? Catch Earn, Al, Darius, and Van as they return to where it began for one final outing with our guide on how to watch Atlanta season 4 online in the U.S., U.K., Canada, and Australia.

As one of the more interesting and off-the-wall shows in years, Atlanta became one of the few comedies not willing to rest on its laurels and play it safe — and never being afraid to reinvent its format for the sake of good storytelling. Atlanta is a comedic fever dream that explores heavy topics like race and identity — before making you laugh at the prospect of an invisible car. Its unique, genre-bending storytelling will be missed, but there’s still one season left to enjoy, and it promises to end with a bang.

Atlanta season 4 synopsis

Atlanta is an award-winning, surrealist comedy series from the mind of Donald Glover/Childish Gambino focusing on two cousins, Earn (played by Glover) and his cousin Alfred (Brian Tyree Henry). After dropping out of Princeton University, Earn reconnects with Alfred, now a rising rap star going by the name Paper Boi. Seeing an opportunity to better his life and that of his family, Earn takes on the role of Alfred’s hapless music manager as they struggle to rise through the ranks of the Atlanta rap scene.

Through their many ups and downs, success finally came to Earn and Alfred last season with the pair joined by Darius (LaKeith Stanfield) and Van (Zazie Beetz) as they embarked on a successful European tour. However, season 4 sees the group returning to Atlanta with each of them having a new perspective on their situations.

Information about what else the new season has in store is in short supply, but one question laid out by the show's official synopsis looms large: upon their return to their hometown of Atlanta, has the city changed? Or better yet, have they??
