Transparent

Amazon announced it has greenlit season four of the multi-Golden Globe and multi-Emmy Award-winning comedy series Transparent. Returning cast includes Jeffrey Tambor (Arrested Development) as Maura Pfefferman, Judith Light (Who's the Boss?) as Shelly Pfefferman, Gaby Hoffmann (Girls) as Ali Pfefferman, Amy Landecker (Louie) as Sarah Pfefferman and Jay Duplass (Togetherness) as Josh Pfefferman. Series creator Jill Soloway will continue in her role as Showrunner on Transparent and Andrea Sperling as Executive Producer. The fourth season of Transparent will premiere exclusively on Prime Video in 2017. Transparent is a half hour novelistic series that explores family, identity, sex, and love. The series stars Tambor as Maura. When she reintroduces herself to her family, everyone else's secrets finally start to come out. This includes her ex-wife Shelly (played by Light), and their children--meandering Ali (played by Hoffmann), music producer Josh (played by Duplass), and sexually conflicted Sarah (played by Landecker). Each family member spins in a different direction as they figure out who they won't become. The highly anticipated third season of Transparent is scheduled to premiere this fall on Prime Video in the US, UK, Austria, Germany and Japan.
