'Atlanta' and 'Better Things' get Season 2 renewals by FX

FX is starting off the television season strong with its two new promising freshmen shows, "Better Things" and "Atlanta" getting Season 2 renewals. Both series air new episodes this week.

In "Atlanta," starring and Executive produced by Donald Glover, tells the story of two cousins in the Atlanta music scene trying to better their lives and the lives of their families. "Earn Marks" (Donald Glover) is a young manager trying to get his cousin's career off the ground. "Alfred Miles" (Brian Tyree Henry) is a new hot rapper trying to understand the line between real life and street life. "Darius" (Lakeith Stanfield) is Alfred's right-hand man and visionary.

"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.

"Atlanta" airs Tuesdays and "Better Things" airs Thursdays on FX.
