The third season is set and shot in Europe, not Atlanta, while Alfred (Brian Tyree Henry) is on tour and he struggles with newfound success.
“Season 3 is kind of like our maximalists season,” Glover told TV reporters at a Television Critics Association panel Thursday. “I think it’s us being like, ‘Yo, we’re in control but what does that mean? Why did we even get here? What is this really? And also just leaving Atlanta and being like, ‘OK, the world is out there and it’s not Atlanta.’ There are different rules, different places and people go through different things. So it’s like fish out of water, you know - or well, a bigger pond.”
