Amazon greenlights season four of ‘Transparent’

MUMBAI: Online retail major and content creator Amazon has greenlit season four of the series ‘Transparent’.

Returning cast includes Jeffrey Tambor (Arrested Development) as Maura Pfefferman, Judith Light (Dallas) as Shelly Pfefferman, Gaby Hoffmann (Girls) as Ali Pfefferman, Amy Landecker (Louie) as Sarah Pfefferman and Jay Duplass (Togetherness) as Josh Pfefferman.

Series creator Jill Soloway will continue in her role as Showrunner on Transparent and Andrea Sperling as executive producer. The fourth season of Transparent will premiere exclusively on Prime Video in 2017.

“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,” said Amazon Studios head of Half Hour TV Joe Lewis.

“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,” said Soloway

Written, directed and executive produced by multi-award winner Soloway, ‘Transparent’ is a half hour novelistic series that explores family, identity, sex, and love.

The series stars Tambor as Maura. When she reintroduces herself to her family, everyone else’s secrets finally start to come out. This includes her ex-wife Shelly (played by Light), and their children—meandering Ali (played by Hoffmann), music producer Josh (played by Duplass), and sexually conflicted Sarah (played by Landecker). Each family member spins in a different direction as they figure out who they won’t become. The highly anticipated third season of ‘Transparent’ is scheduled to premiere later this year on Prime Video in the US, UK, Austria, Germany and Japan.
