The multi-hyphenate– who voices Adult Simba in the highly-anticipated remake of The Lion King– chatted with the host about the film, what it was like to work with Beyonce, and the whereabouts of his popular FX series, Atlanta. While he was not fully discussing what the status of the show is, he did say that he was “working” on the series, per his contract.
“Um, I think my contract says I have to say ‘Yes.’ Yes,” Glover (who wore a lion costume the entire time) said.
“So, you’re supposed to be working on Atlanta right now?” Kimmel asked, which prompted a funny response from Glover (which isn’t too funny to fans of the show).
“Oh, I am working on Atlanta right now,” Glover laughed. “Literally, this is a script for ‘Atlanta,’ if anybody asks.”
Atlanta was renewed for a third season in 2018 and is currently on a hiatus. Production reportedly hasn’t started for the upcoming season, and in an earlier report, VIBE wrote that the new season would not be back this year as anticipated.
