Season eight of Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta began filming in October 2018. Months earlier, on July 18, 2018, it was reported that Stevie J and Faith Evans had married in Las Vegas. On October 18, 2018, Tommie was arrested for allegedly attacking her daughter at her high school while heavily intoxicated. On January 3, 2019, while facing up to 54 years behind bars for the crime, Tommie confirmed that she would not be returning to the show. Erica Mena would also not return as a series regular, although she denied she had been fired and would later appear as a commentator for the special 40 Greatest Love & Hip Hop Moments: The Reboot, which would air during the season.

On February 25, 2019, VH1 announced Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta would be returning for an eighth season on March 25, 2019. On March 4, 2019, VH1 released a promo confirming that Spice, Scrapp DeLeon and Yung Joc had been promoted to the main cast, after appearing in previous seasons as supporting cast members. T.I. & Tiny: The Family Hustle's Shekinah Anderson, rapper Akbar V, socialite Pooh Hicks, Che Mack, Joc's fiancé Kendra Robinson and Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood's Moniece Slaughter would join the supporting cast, while Stevie J's new wife Faith Evans would make guest appearances. Bambi's mother Cece and salon owner Sharonda Official would also appear in minor supporting roles.

On March 6, 2019, VH1 began releasing a series of cast interviews with Rasheeda, Mimi, Karlie, Spice, Stevie J, Kirk and Tokyo Vanity. On March 16, 2018, VH1 released a sneak peek of the season's premiere episode. On March 18, 2019, VH1 released a 5 minute super trailer.

On April 1, 2019, VH1 aired Love & Hip Hop Awards: Most Certified, a special hosted by Tami Roman and DC Young Fly and featuring Love & Hip Hop franchise cast members being awarded in various categories. The show would feature appearances from current and former Atlanta cast members Mimi, Karlie, K. Michelle, Kirk, Momma Dee, Shay Johnson, Yung Joc and Moniece, as well as Love & Hip Hop: New York's Cardi B, Amina Buddafly, Tara Wallace, Mariahlynn, Yandy SmithRemy Ma, Jonathan Fernandez and Mama JonesHollywood's Safaree SamuelsRay J and A1 Bentley, and Miami's Bobby Lytes and Amara La Negra. On April 8, 2019, VH1 aired another clip show special, 40 Greatest Love & Hip Hop Moments: The Reboot, which would again feature appearances from the aforementioned cast members, as well as Erica Mena, Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood's Paris Phillips and Misster Ray, and Miami's Trina.

On March 12, 2019, Stevie J tweeted "Not returning for a full season. No need". Subsequently, he appeared infrequently during the season, despite being credited as a cast member in every episode.
