Amazon has announced that it has greenlit a third season of its award-winning original series Transparent – and the second season hasn’t even premiered yet.
The third season will begin filming next week. The show’s creator, Jill Soloway, will stay on as showrunner.
“Jill is truly a creative force and I’m thrilled that we will be collaborating with her additional projects in the future and on a third season of Transparent,” said Roy Price, Vice President, Amazon Studios. “The second season is currently starting production, and I know our customers will be delighted to continue the journey with Maura and the Pfefferman family.”
Transparent is a half hour novelistic series that explores family, identity, sex, and love. The series stars Tambor as Maura, who has spent her life as Mort—the Pfefferman family patriarch. 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), record 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.
You can watch the first season right now if you’re an Amazon Prime members. The second season debuts in the fall.
Earlier this year, at the Golden Globes, Transparent gave Amazon its first ever wins at a major award show. The series won best TV series comedy or musical, and its star Jeffrey Tambor won best actor in a TV comedy as well.
