The FX television network has locked up Golden Globe winner Donald Glover, but there will be a wait for new episodes of his comedy “Atlanta.”

FX said it had signed a deal with Glover for more “Atlanta” episodes and to develop other shows. The series about the rap industry in the Southern city won the Golden Globe last weekend as best television comedy, with Glover best actor in a comedy.

New episodes won’t be available until 2018, however. FX agreed to the delay because Glover has a movie role upcoming.

Another popular FX series, “American Crime Story,” also won’t be back until next year. It will be a story about Hurricane Katrina and is being shot in New Orleans where, because of hurricane season, there’s a limited period of time where filming can be done.

FX is tolerant of lengthy delays in series. “Fargo” is about to return from a hiatus, and “Louie” returns whenever star Louis C.K. feels like making new episodes.

“Given the choice between having it on schedule and having … happy, committed talent and have it good, we’ll take it later and take it good,” FX Networks chief John Landgraf said.
