Amazon Renews 'Transparent' for Season 4

Amazon has given a fourth season renewal to its original series Transparent, it was announced today. The renewal comes months ahead of the series' third season return this fall. The fourth season will premiere in 2017.

Returning cast for the fourth season includes Jeffrey Tambor, Judith Light, Gaby Hoffmann, Amy Landecker and Jay Duplass. Series creator Jill Soloway will continue to serve as showrunner and Andrea Sperling will continue as executive producer.

"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," said Joe Lewis, Head of Half Hour TV at Amazon Studios. "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."

"Amazon's explosive freedom and revolutionary thinking has given birth to this show," said Soloway. "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."
