What’s happening with Transparent? Recently, Amazon chief Jennifer Salke spoke with Deadline about the future of the TV show.
As reported earlier, the award-winning series was put on hold after star Jeffrey Tambor was fired last year amid allegations of sexual harassment. The cast also includes Judith Light, Gaby Hoffmann, Amy Landecker, Jay Duplass, Rob Huebel, and Kathryn Hahn.
While Amazon has announced there will be a fifth and final season of Transparent, it’s currently unclear when that season will happen. Speaking to Deadline, Salke revealed series creator Jill Soloway is taking time to plan the show’s last season:
Within days of my new job being announced, I spent hours with (Transparent creator) Jill (Soloway), who I knew, and we talked a lot about what she wanted to do and where everybody was creatively with the season. Right now we’re in a place where she’s taking a little bit of time, figuring out what she thinks that final season will be, and then we’re going to talk in September about what the plan will be. I do think there’ll be some version of a season five, but that’s not decided, and what form it takes is also undecided. Is it a full series? Is it four episodes? Is it a movie? Those conversations are literally all going on and have been set aside for a month, because she and I decided that. She’s got a full slate of other things she’s focused on.”
