Today, Amazon announced that it has greenlit season four of its award-winning series Transparent. The series will premiere exclusively on Amazon Prime Video in 2017.
In season four, Jeffrey Tambor, Judith Light, Gaby Hoffmann, Amy Landecker and Jay Duplass will return to play their original roles. Jill Soloway will also continue in her role as showrunner and Andrea Sperling will continue as the executive producer.
The renewal of the show comes before the release of season three, which is set to premiere this fall on Amazon Prime Video.
“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,” said Joe Lewis, Head of Half Hour TV at Amazon Studios in a press release. “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.”
Transparent is a comedy about the lives of three children and their father, after Maura Pfefferman, the father, comes out as transgender.
“Amazon’s explosive freedom and revolutionary thinking has given birth to this show,” said Soloway. “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.”
