Amazon Renews ‘Transparent’ for Season Two

Amazon Renews Transparent for Season 2

Amazon’s got a hit on its hands with Transparent, the dark comedy starring Jeffrey Tambor, Judith Light, Gaby Hoffman, Amy Landecker, and Jay Duplass. Created by Jill Soloway (Six Feet Under), Transparent is sitting at the top of the Prime Instant Video chart as the #1 ranked series. It’s also currently sitting at 98% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes, with 46 critics awarding it positive reviews and one lone critic giving it a failing grade.

Given the response from Prime Instant Video subscribers as well as critics, Amazon’s renewed Transparent for a second season. Season two will air in 2015.

“We are absolutely thrilled that the response to Transparent has been so positive,” said Roy Price, Vice President of Amazon Studios. “Our goal is to create series that customers love, so it’s great to hear that Transparent has not only risen to the no. 1 series on Prime Instant Video, but that it’s deemed ‘binge worthy’ as well. Given all this great feedback, it only makes sense to bring the Pfeffermans back next year in season two.”

The Plot:

Written, directed and executive produced by Emmy-nominee and 2013 Sundance Best Director winner Soloway, Transparent is a 10-episode, half-hour novelistic series that explores family, identity, sex, and love. The series stars Tambor as Maura, who has spent her life as Mort–the Pfefferman family patriarch. When she reintroduces herself to her family, everyone’s secrets finally start to come out. This includes her ex-wife Shelly (played by Light), and their children–meandering Ali (played by Hoffmann), record producer Josh (played by Duplass), and sexually conflicted Sarah (played by Landecker). Each family member spins in a different direction as they begin to figure out who they are going to become.
