Donald Glover is off to a great start to the new year, his show Atlanta just won two Golden Globe awards: one for best comedy series and the other for himself as best actor in a comedy series.

However, just after the show has garnered so much accolades and critical praise, Atlanta‘s second season will actually be delayed. According to Hollywood Reporter through a press release by the FX network, new episodes will not actually air until 2018. The reason for the delay is said to be Donald Glover’s schedule. He will after all be playing Lando Calrissian in the new stand alone Star Wars movie about Han Solo. That movie should start filming next month, which would impede his work on Atlanta. Additionally, Glover just also signed a new deal with FX putting the 33-year-old at a position where he can develop new shows for the network and streaming services.

“Donald is a remarkable artist, effortlessly shifting from actor to writer, producer, director and musician to create one amazing project after another,” Nick Grad, FX president of original programming and FX Productions said. “Atlanta was just the beginning, the breakout comedy of the year and a series revered as much for its originality as its honest look at the experience of being aspiring, young and black in that legendary city. We’re proud to partner with Donald in an overall deal that will allow him to continue turning his creative vision into incredible television.”
