How to watch Atlanta season 3: Stream the new season anywhere in the world

Watch the latest season of the hit US comedy-drama live or on-demand in the US, UK or elsewhere

The return of Emmy and Golden Globe winning series Atlanta has been one of the most anticipated moments of television in 2022. With show creator, writer and star Donald Glover hyping the new season as “some of the best television ever made”, everyone is desperate to get stuck into the latest instalment of the epic comedy-drama.

You can watch Atlanta in the US via FX on satellite TV, or stream it as it happens via Hulu with Live TV. Equally, if you can stomach a little longer wait, British viewers will be able to stream the new season via Disney Plus in the near future.

Four years in the making, Atlanta season three has been a long-time coming. As with the delay of season two, when Donald Glover was starring as Lando Calrissian in Solo: A Star Wars Story, production of season three was set for a scheduled hiatus to accommodate the busy schedule of the talented polymath. The coronavirus pandemic extended that delay a little longer than had initially been planned for, however finally, the hit comedy-drama returned to screens on 24 March 2022.

For those who don’t know, Atlanta-native Donald Glover stars as the Ivy League dropout Earnest “Earn” Marks and Brian Tyree Henry as his rapper cousin Paper Boi – also known as Alfred Miles – as they attempt to hustle their way to the top of the music industry in Atlanta, Georgia. The hit FX Original show also features big name actors like Zazie Olivia Beetz, who plays Vanessa “Van” Keefer, and LaKeith Stanfield, who plays Darius Epps.

If you need reminding about the most recent happenings in Atlanta – and without giving too much away for any new fans – season two ended with Earn, Darius and Alfred heading out to Europe for Paper Boi to support Clark County, played by RJ Walker, on tour. Season three picks up from there with all the gang’s usual antics expected to continue. You can watch a trailer for the new season below.

Since season four is slated to be the last of the hit show, it’s a great time to catch up with all the ongoings of Paper Boi and company even if you haven’t seen any episodes to date. Read on below to learn how to watch Atlanta series one, two and three wherever you are in the world.

How to watch Atlanta in the US: FX and Hulu

Watching Atlanta in the US is simple if you’ve already got a cable/satellite subscription since the third season will be broadcast on FX; the channel that every season has been released on to date. The first two episodes premiered via FX on Thursday 24 March 2022 while the remaining eight of the season will run weekly until 19 May 2022.

Those without traditional satellite TV can stream the show via a service like Hulu with Live TV. New customers get a free seven-day trial to test the service out and get access to all its on-demand channels and full streaming library. You won’t be charged if you cancel before the end of the trial, but thereafter it will cost $69.99/mth.

If you can’t catch the action live, or don’t want to pay extra for live TV channels, then each episode is also available to stream the day after it airs in the US via the regular Hulu streaming service. The Disney owned company is exclusively available in the US and offers a huge library of on-demand TV shows like Atlanta’s fellow FX-produced show It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia or movies like the 2020 Academy Award winning film Parasite. You’ll also be able to watch the first two seasons of Atlanta any time you want, with all this costing $6.99/mth or $69.99 if you commit to a year. Hulu can also be bundled with ESPN+ and Disney Plus for $13.99/mth.

How to watch Atalanta in the UK: Disney Plus

At present, there isn’t an official release date for season three of Atlanta in the UK. However, what we do know is that it will be released via Disney Plus since the international version of Hulu (called Star) was added to Disney Plus on 23 February 2021. Given the final episode of the third season is set to premiere on 19 May 2022 in the US, it can be expected that all episodes will hit British streaming in late May or June 2022.

If you want to catch up with the first two seasons ahead of season three, or simply want to remind yourself of all the action thus far, grabbing a Disney Plus UK subscription will cost you either £7.99/mth or you can save 15% by spending £79.90 on a one year commitment. You’ll also gain access to all things Disney, including new and exclusive movies like Turning Red, all things from franchises owned by Disney like the Star Wars and Marvel cinematic universes, as well as a host of other TV shows that are regularly restocked.

How to watch Atlanta anywhere in the world: Hulu with a VPN

If you cannot go any longer without new episodes of Atlanta after the four year wait, then we don’t blame you. That’s a long interval, but since season three is currently being rolled out in the US, there is a way to stream episodes wherever you are in the world – including for UK-based fans who want to see the series before it hits Disney Plus UK.

The solution? Accessing the American streaming service Hulu via a good VPN service. For those not familiar, VPNs (or Virtual Private Networks) assign you a different IP address – a method of tracking your activity online – so that it appears as though you are using the internet in a different location. Since streaming services often geo-block content and make their libraries only available in certain locations because of licensing laws, this means you will need a VPN to bypass these restrictions and access certain TV series, movies and services. For streaming Atlanta, this is no different as Hulu is geo-blocked from users outside the US.

After setting up a VPN and selecting a US-based IP address, you’ll be able to sign up or login in to Hulu and watch all the latest episodes of Atlanta season three, as and when they are released. You can read about our two favourite VPN options for streaming down below should this sound appealing.
