Sex & Nudity

  • There is a brief sex scene in the middle of season two where a character performs cunnilingus on another (no nudity).
  • There are several instances of non-sexualized full frontal male nudity in later seasons.
  • A picture of a fully nude man is seen briefly for comedic purposes
  • Strippers in a strip club mostly nude with tassels and bikini bottoms.
  • Throughout the show, there are some brief crude sexual references that are played for comedy, but are infrequent and passing in tone.

Violence & Gore

  • A dead deer is seen in a forest environment with guts hanging out. Graphic, but camera doesn't linger on it for long.
  • Some infrequent gun violence and brawling with some bloody results occasionally.
  • A man is shot with a rifle from a distance, some blood spray
  • A man is shot by police officers, blood flies out from his back. Moderately graphic, but isn't dwelled upon.
  • A man is struck by a night stick and pinned down by multiple officers and heard screaming in pain.


  • Frequent uses of "fuck" & "shit" in most episodes, including the infrequent usage of the word "cunt" coupled with some milder profanity like "cocksucker", "bitch", "dick", "ass", "damn" and "hell". Slurs such as "faggot" and "nigga" are used as well.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • People smoke weed throughout each episode
  • Two of the main characters are drug dealers, though their dealing is mostly only referred to with the exception of an episode involving an exchange of "goods".
  • Constant drinking in most episodes

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Atlanta, in later seasons, features more absurdist and surreal sequences, some of which feature disturbing imagery, often tied to racial tension, with some very brief jumpscares. As a result, some scenes may be hard to watch for some viewers.


The Parents Guide items below may give away important plot points.

Violence & Gore

  • A murder-suicide between two characters in one episode. Some blood and gore is present.
  • In Season 2's premiere, a brief scene of events are presented to the audience; a man shoots a teenager in a car (shot from a distance, no blood), a man brawls with a doctor, beats a flamingo to death (no blood), and eats another man's face off (covered by camera angle, no gore, some blood). All comedic.
  • A character is suffocated and is seen struggling until they die in an assisted suicide attempt. Comedic but very disturbing.
  • A character shoots himself in the head, we see brief blood spray, and as he falls into a pool, blood surrounds him.
  • A man is brutally beaten with a stale piece of bread and we see some blood and injury detail. Comedic, but still violent.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • A scene involving a mentally disturbed man who is beaten and pinned by multiple officers, and the man can be heard screaming in pain. This may be disturbing to some.
  • In season 2 there is a very unsettling and creepy episode that is longer than most others, and without commercials, which makes it feel more scary.
  • The beginning of season 3 tells a story about a young black child experiencing modern day slavery. The whole episode is unsettling and a bit hard to watch at times and even more so considering it's based on a true story.
