Amazon has renewed “Transparent” for a fifth season.
Season 5 will begin production next year and is slated to premiere on Amazon Prime Video in 2018, the streaming video wing of Jeff Bezos’ online retail giant said on Thursday.
The entire Pfefferman family will be back in action, including Jeffrey Tambor, Judith Light, Gaby Hoffmann, Jay Duplass and Amy Landecker. Andrea Sperling will continue on as executive producer, along with creator Jill 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 5.”
“We are extremely grateful to Amazon Studios for their continued trust and support and to our audience for their warm embrace of the Pfeffermans,” added Soloway. “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” has won eight Primetime Emmy Awards to-date.
