Amazon renews Transparent for series four

Jeffrey Tambor to return as Maura Pfefferman

Acclaimed comedy Transparent is to return for a fourth series, Amazon has announced.

Jeffrey Tambor will return to the lead role of transsexual Maura Pfefferman when the season is  released on Amazon Prime next year.

Regular last members Judith Light, Gaby Hoffmann, Amy Landecker  and Jay Duplass are all signed up, too, while series creator Jill Soloway will continue in her role as showrunner

Joe Lewis, head of half hour TV at Amazon Studios, said: ‘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.

‘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.’

Soloway added: ‘Amazon’s explosive freedom and revolutionary thinking has given birth to this show. 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.’

The third season of Transparent has yet to air, but is scheduled to premiere this autumn in the US, UK, Austria, Germany and Japan.
