Series won two Golden Globe Awards earlier this year
Amazon has renewed “Mozart in the Jungle” for a third season, it was announced Tuesday.
The show posted a message on its official Twitter account saying, “It’s not over. #MozartInTheJungle will return for a new season.”
The series recently won two Golden Globe Awards, one for Best Television Series, Musical or Comedy, and Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series – Comedy or Musical for series star Gael Garcia Bernal.
Inspired by “Mozart in the Jungle: Sex, Drugs, and Classical Music,” oboist Blair Tindall’s 2005 memoir about playing with the New York Philharmonic and in orchestras for Broadway shows, the series premiered on December 23, 2014 to critical acclaim.
García Bernal’s charming and oversexed Rodrigo, a young conductor who shakes up the stodgy classical music scene (based on Los Angeles Philharmonic Music Director Gustavo Dudamel), is especially compelling and has helped the show woo not only viewers but also the Hollywood Foreign Press Association to take home its first award.
The first two seasons of “Mozart in the Jungle” are currently streaming on Amazon Prime.
