Amazon Studios Greenlights Fifth Season of Jill Soloway’s Golden Globe Award and Multi-Emmy Award Winning Series Transparent
Fifth season expected to premiere in 2018 on Amazon Prime Video exclusively for Prime Members
SEATTLE—August 24, 2017—(NASDAQ: AMZN)—Amazon Studios today announced it has greenlit a fifth season of Jill Soloway’s Golden Globe Award and multi-Emmy Award winning series Transparent. The fifth season will begin production next year and is anticipated to premiere on Amazon Prime Video in 2018 exclusively for Prime Members.
The entire Pfefferman family will be back including Jeffrey Tambor (Arrested Development), Judith Light (Dallas), Gaby Hoffmann (Girls), Jay Duplass (Togetherness) and Amy Landecker (Louie). Andrea Sperling (Spivak) will continue as executive producer as well as Soloway.
“Over the past few seasons the Pfeffermans have gone across the world, back in time and made many, many trips to the deli,” said Joe Lewis, Head of Comedy, Drama and VR, Amazon Studios. “We’re so excited to see what magic Jill and the incredible team bring to this always groundbreaking series in season five.”
Transparent’s creator Jill Soloway commented: “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.”
Transparent is a comedic, half hour novelistic series that explores identity, love, sex, God and boundaries through the lives of a complicated American family. Tambor is Maura Pfefferman, whose reintroduction to her family as a woman sets their journey in motion. Her ex-wife Shelly (played by Light), and their children—Ali (played by Hoffmann), Josh (played by Duplass), and Sarah (played by Landecker)—explore the uneven terrain of their own lives with poignant and meaningful results.
