SEATTLE - August 24, 2017 - (NASDAQ: AMZN) - Amazon Studios today announced it has greenlit a fifth season of Jill Soloway's Golden Globe Award and multi-Emmy Award winning series Transparent.

"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."

Transparent's creator Jill Soloway commented: "We are extremely grateful to Amazon Studios for their continued trust and support and to our audience for their warm embrace of the Pfeffermans. 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."
