A series that has won multiple Golden Globes and Emmy Awards has been greenlighted for season four. Amazon announced today that it is moving forward with a new season of “Transparent.”
Core cast members Jeffrey Tambor (“Arrested Development”), Judith Light (“Dallas”), Gaby Hoffmann (“Girls”), Amy Landecker (“Louie”) and Jay Duplass (“Togetherness”) are all returning. Series creator Jill Soloway will remain as showrunner, with Andrea Sperling to return as executive producer.
The show’s fourth season will bow on Amazon Prime in 2017.
Said Joe Lewis, head of half-hour TV at Amazon Studios: “As the quality of television rises to new heights, ‘Transparent’ continues to stand out for its depth of character, compassionate storytelling and its infinite creative risk-taking. We’re grateful that customers have responded so enthusiastically to the Pfefferman family and we’re excited to bring them another chapter of their story.”
Soloway added: “Amazon’s explosive freedom and revolutionary thinking has given birth to this show. It’s so much more than TV to us, it’s our version of the most ambitious streaming art we can conjure. We’re having the time of our lives sharing season two for the awards season hoopla, and editing and finishing up season three for a fall release. This news of an order for season four is so so sweet. The Pfeffermans have many more stories to tell and we can’t wait to keep making them.”
“Transparent” received 11 Primetime Emmy nominations last year and won five trophies, including Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series for Tambor and Outstanding Directing for Soloway. Also in 2015, the show won Golden Globes for Tambor and for Best Television Series, Comedy or Musical.
It is nominated again this year in both Golden Globes categories, along with a nod for Light for Supporting Actress.
