FX Renews Better Things For A Second Season

FX announced that both Better Things and Atlanta will get new seasons.

According to the network’s announcement, both programs can expect to get second seasons with 10 episodes. Heralding the news, FX Presidents of Original Programming Nick Grad and Eric Schrier praised the move as a major step forward for these “exceptional shows” and exclaimed that they were “incredibly proud to produce” them.

Better Things is written by comedian Louis C.K. and Atlanta is written by comedian/rapper Donald Glover:

Better Things centers on Sam Fox (Pamela Adlon), a single, working actor with no filter raising her three daughters, Max (Mikey Madison), Frankie (Hannah Alligood) and Duke (Olivia Edward) in Los Angeles. She’s mom, dad, referee and the cops. Sam also watches out for her mother, Phil (Celia Imrie), an English expatriate, who lives across the street. Sam is flawed and fierce with her love for her daughters, and her own mother, as well. Sometimes, heaping the love on when she feels guilty. Sam’s just trying to earn a living, navigate her daughters’ lives, have fun with a friend or two and also — just maybe — squeeze in some private time once in a while. Adlon serves as Executive Producer alongside Louis C.K., M. Blair Breard, Dave Becky and 3 Arts Entertainment. Better Things is produced by C.K.’s production company Pig Newton for FX Productions.
