Amazon Greenlights Season Four of the Multi-Golden Globe and Multi-Emmy Award-Winning Original Series Transparent

Jill Soloway will continue as Showrunner and Andrea Sperling as
Executive Producer

Jeffrey Tambor (Arrested Development), Judith Light
(Dallas), Gaby Hoffmann (Girls), Amy Landecker (Louie)
and Jay Duplass
(Togetherness) will all return

SEATTLE–(BUSINESS WIRE)–(NASDAQ: AMZN)—Amazon today announced it has greenlit season four of the
multi-Golden Globe and multi-Emmy Award-winning series Transparent.
Returning cast includes Jeffrey
(Arrested Development) as Maura Pfefferman, Judith
(Dallas) as Shelly Pfefferman, Gaby
(Girls) as Ali Pfefferman, Amy
(Louie) as Sarah Pfefferman and Jay
(Togetherness) as Josh Pfefferman. Series
creator Jill
will continue in her role as Showrunner on Transparent and
as Executive Producer. The fourth season of Transparent will
premiere exclusively on Prime Video in 2017.

“As the quality of television rises to new heights, Transparent
continues to stand out for its depth of character, compassionate
storytelling and its infinite creative risk-taking,” said Joe Lewis,
Head of Half Hour TV at Amazon Studios. “We’re grateful that customers
have responded so enthusiastically to the Pfefferman family and we’re
excited to bring them another chapter of their story.”

“Amazon’s explosive freedom and revolutionary thinking has given birth
to this show,” said Soloway. “It’s so much more than TV to us, it’s our
version of the most ambitious streaming art we can conjure. We’re having
the time of our lives sharing season two for the awards season hoopla,
and editing and finishing up season three for a fall release. This news
of an order for season four is so so sweet. The Pfeffermans have many
more stories to tell and we can’t wait to keep making them.”

Written, directed and executive produced by multi-award winner Soloway, Transparent
is a half hour novelistic series that explores family, identity,
sex, and love. The series stars Tambor as Maura. When she reintroduces
herself to her family, everyone else’s secrets finally start to come
out. This includes her ex-wife Shelly (played by Light), and their
children—meandering Ali (played by Hoffmann), music producer Josh
(played by Duplass), and sexually conflicted Sarah (played by
Landecker). Each family member spins in a different direction as they
figure out who they won’t become. The highly anticipated third season of Transparent
is scheduled to premiere this fall on Prime Video in the US, UK,
Austria, Germany and Japan.
