SEATTLE, 2016-Jun-02 — /EPR Retail News/ — (NASDAQ: AMZN)—Amazon today (May 31, 2016) announced it has greenlit season four of the multi-Golden Globe and multi-Emmy Award-winning 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) asJosh 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,” said Joe Lewis, Head of Half Hour TV at Amazon Studios. “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.”

“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.”

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 this fall on Prime Video in the US, UK, Austria, Germany and Japan.

Amazon: Award-winning actress Anjelica Huston and Emmy Award winner Cherry Jones guest stars in 2nd season of Transparent

The Pfeffermans take family dysfunction to a whole new level in the highly anticipated second season which premieres December 11 on Prime Video

SEATTLE, 2015-11-12 — /EPR Retail News/ — (NASDAQ: AMZN)—Amazon today announced Academy Award-winning actress Anjelica Huston (Medium) and Emmy Award winner Cherry Jones (24) are among the guest stars joining the second season of the multiple Emmy and Golden Globe Award-winning series Transparent. Premiering December 11 exclusively on Prime Video in the US, UK, Germany andAustria, Transparent will also guest star Kathryn Hahn (Parks and Recreation), Rob Huebel (I Love You, Man), Carrie Brownstein(Portlandia), Alexandra Billings (Socket), Tig Notaro (One Mississippi) Alex MacNicoll (Peace of Mind), and Trace Lysette (Bloody Mary). Emmy Award-winner (Transparent) Bradley Whitford (The West Wing) returns to the series as well as Melora Hardin (The Office), Michaela Watkins(Wanderlust), and Emily Robinson (A New York Fairy Tale).

Season two of Transparent begins with a big, white wedding for Sarah and Tammy—but is it happily ever after? Post nuptials, Sarah gets in touch with her deeper desires, which isn’t always comfortable. Now out of the closet, Maura discovers the hardest part of her transition is still ahead, and faces some tough personal decisions about her future. Josh and Rabbi Raquel navigate their new relationship, and the complexity of being an instant family for Josh’s recently returned son, Colton. Ali zeroes in on her future, captivated by a new connection with Syd and a prolific feminist mentor.

Continuing their journey towards their authenticity, the entire Pfefferman family returns for the second season of Transparent. Golden Globe and Emmy Award-winner Jeffrey Tambor (Arrested Development) stars as Maura, Judith Light (The Exes) as Shelly, Amy Landecker (Louie) as Sarah, Jay Duplass (Togetherness) as Josh and Emmy nominated Gaby Hoffmann (Girls) as Ali. The second season of Transparent is executive produced by Jill Soloway (Six Feet Under) and Andrea Sperling (Like Crazy).

“Season two is wild! Now that the bubble wrap is off, it’s time for the whole family to transition,” said Soloway, the Emmy Award-winning creator of Transparent. “Our Pfeffermans realize they must give up their disguises, unspoken arrangements and secrets. By exploring their shared history and legacy, they come to understand that you can’t go forward without knowing where you come from. Ultimately, everyone will open their hearts, advertise their desires, and test those notoriously wobbly boundaries as each Pfefferman tries their hardest to come out – as themselves.”

Transparent is a half hour novelistic series that explores family, identity, sex, and love. The first season followed Maura Pfferman’s journey to being her true self. When she reintroduced herself to her family, everyone else’s secrets finally came out. This included her ex-wife Shelly, and their adult children—meandering Ali, record producer Josh, and sexually conflicted Sarah. Each family member spun into different directions as they figured out who they aren’t. The series has been renewed for a third season which is scheduled to air in 2016.
