Ahead of the premiere of the fourth season, Amazon has renewed Transparent for a fifth season. Creator and executive producer Jill Soloway said:
“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.”
The series, starring Jeffrey Tambor, Judith Light, Gaby Hoffmann, Jay Duplass, and Amy Landecke, is up for five Emmy Awards including lead comedy for Tambor and supporting nods for Light and Kathryn Hahn. Tambor has won back-to-back Emmys for role as Maura Pfefferman a transgender woman whose decision to come out changes the course of her family’s life.
“Over the past few seasons the Pfeffermans have gone across the world, back in time and made many, many trips to the deli. We’re so excited to see what magic Jill and the incredible team bring to this always groundbreaking series in season five.”
You can catch the fourth season of Transparent on Amazon Prime Video starting Sept. 22.
