‘Transparent’ renewed for season 4 at Amazon, months before season 3 premieres

AmazonMuch like Netflix has shown great faith in some of their marquee shows, whether it be “House of Cards” or “Orange is the New Black,” the folks over at Amazon are also doing the same exact thing with “Transparent.”

Today, the streaming service announced that they are picking up the Jeffrey Tambor series for a fourth season, which is going to be available for Amazon Prime subscribers at some point in 2017. This comes months after the second season premiered, and months before the show returns for its third season later this year. The original cast is going to continue to be on board, and the same goes for creator / showrunner Jill Soloway.

In a statement, Soloway had the following to say about getting this chance to continue the show for a while longer:

“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.”   

One of the beautiful things right now about a show like “Transparent” is that at its core, it’s a story about family; therefore, it can really last as long as there are still events happening within this world. There’s no definite end date, and for now, all parties involved do seem to enjoy making the show and being a part of this world.
