'Alfred Miles' (Brian Tyree Henry) is a new hot rapper trying to understand the line between real life and street life. 'Darius' (Lakeith Lee Stanfield) is Alfred's right-hand man and visionary. 'Van' (Zazie Beetz) is Earn's best friend and the mother of Earn's daughter.
There are few series on television as adept as cultivating doom onscreen as Atlanta, and there is a rising dread as we realize, right along with Van, that Brandon is not a good guy, that he could in fact be a bad one.
In the end, Atlanta is an ensemble show with an ensemble cast. Very early on it established that this was not at all just "the Donald Glover show" and it's cool to see Robbin' Season confidently reaffirm that the series rides on its entire cast.
