A dark comedy that has been receiving critical raves will be back for a second season. Variety reports that Amazon Studios has reupped with “Transparent,” from Jill Soloway.
The company said the series has been No. 1 on its Prime Instant Video service since the show debuted two weeks ago, the report notes.
“The show, starring Jeffrey Tambor as a transgendered parent who comes out to his adult kids, is the most-binge-watched show [ever] on Amazon’s Prime Instant Video, according to the company,” the story reports. “Nearly 80% of viewers have watched two or more episodes of ‘Transparent’ in the same day, according to Amazon.”
In a statement, Amazon Studios VP Roy Price said: “Our goal is to create series that customers love, so it’s great to hear that ‘Transparent’ has not only risen to the No. 1 series on Prime Instant Video, but that it’s deemed ‘binge-worthy’ as well. Given all the great feedback, it only makes sense to bring the Pfeffermans back next year in season two.”
