Ahead of its Season 4 premiere on Friday, Sept. 22, Amazon has renewed its prized pony for another year. Transparent received a Season 5 renewal from the streaming service. The original cast including Jeffrey Tambor, Judith Light (Dallas), Gaby Hoffmann, Amy Landecker and Jay Duplass will remain on board.
“Over the past few seasons the Pfeffermans have gone across the world, back in time and made many, many trips to the deli,” Joe Lewis, Head of Comedy, Drama and VR at Amazon Studios, said in a statement. “We’re so excited to see what magic Jill and the incredible team bring to this always groundbreaking series in Season 5.”
The renewal isn’t all too surprising. Transparent is the first show produced by Amazon Studios to win a major award and the first show produced by a streaming media service to win a Golden Globe for Best Series. Tambour has earned an Emmy and Golden Globe for his portrayal of a transgender character. The comedy-drama is up for six Emmys this year.
“We are extremely grateful to Amazon Studios for their continued trust and support and to our audience for their warm embrace of the Pfeffermans. We look forward to another season of comedy and drama, love and weirdness, God and sex – in the service of community and in pursuit of peace, joy, freedom and human rights for all.” – Creator Jill Soloway
