An end is in sight for those waiting for Season 2 of Amazon’s award-winning series Transparent — Dec. 4.

The announcement was made yesterday by the cast and creative team at the Television Critics Assn. press tour in Los Angeles, according to Variety.

“Over the course of the past year, as it has become this tsunami in the zeitgeist, the most exciting part is the civil rights movement,” creator Jill Soloway said at the event. “Even though we’re making a television show, to feel like it’s all for a larger cause is the most exciting part of all of this.”

Amazon has already given Transparent the go-ahead for Season 3. The series won two Golden Globes earlier this year, and is nominated for 11 Emmy Awards.

In other Amazon entertainment news, don’t forget that the pilots for two new series, Bryan Cranston’s Sneaky Pete and Casanova from the director of Amelie are premiering this Friday. Amazon Prime viewers will have the opportunity to watch and vote on the pilots to determine if those concepts will continue as full series.

What can viewers expect from the second round of Transparent? Soloway told Variety that “the new episodes go to a whole new level and they don’t have to spend as much time explaining the trans community due to society’s now-greater sense of understanding.”

“We’re taking the gloves off,” Soloway said at the press event. “Taking the bubble wrap off.”
