"Over the past few seasons the Pfeffermans have gone across the world, back in time and made many, many trips to the deli," said Joe Lewis, Head of Comedy, Drama and VR, Amazon Studios. "We're so excited to see what magic Jill and the incredible team bring to this always groundbreaking series in season five."

"We are extremely grateful to Amazon Studios for their continued trust and support and to our audience for their warm embrace of the Pfeffermans," added Soloway. "We look forward to another season of comedy and drama, love and weirdness, God and sex - in the service of community and in pursuit of peace, joy, freedom and human rights for all."
