Amazon announced today that its Prime Members will be able to watch that season in 2016. Additionally, the show’s creator Jill Soloway signed a deal with Amazon Studios to exclusively develop TV projects for Amazon Prime. Soloway is a veteran of TV series like Six Feet Under (HBO) and United States of Tara (Showtime).
Soloway will continue in her role as showrunner on Transparent and Andrea Sperling, who was co-executive producer on the series, has been elevated to executive producer, according to a statement by Amazon.
“I am so thrilled that I get to share more of the Pfeffermans’ story with the world,” said Soloway in the statement. “We are all so in love with watching them change and grow. I am blown away by the creative freedom Amazon gives me and I can’t wait to reveal where this journey is going to take us.”
The entire cast, including Jeffrey Tambor (Arrested Development), Judith Light (Dallas), Gaby Hoffmann (Girls), Amy Landecker (Louie) and Jay Duplass (Togetherness) are all set to return for Season 3, too. Tambor also won a Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Comedy Series.
What makes this so unique is that Season Two hasn’t even come out yet. Amazon is expected to release that sometime this fall.
If you haven’t watched Transparent yet, there’s no time like the present. It’s an excellent series featuring the patriarch of the family (Tambor) who has decided to reintroduce herself as Maura to her family. Of course, family drama ensues. With an exceptional cast and rich, dynamic storylines, it is an incredibly rewarding half-hour of entertainment. You can watch Season One now.
