Amazon Greenlights Second Season Of `Transparent’

Amazon Studios has renewed comedy series Transparent for a second season as the original series sets audience records for Amazon's Prime Instant Video OTT service, said network officials.

The series, which stars Jeffrey Tambor (Arrested Development), Judith Light (Dallas), Gaby Hoffmann (Girls), Amy Landecker (Louie) and Jay Duplass (Togetherness), is currently the top ranked series on Prime Instant Video, although the OTT service did not release specific audience numbers.

Amazon also said Transparent is the most binge-watched TV series on Prime Instant Video, with nearly 80% of all viewers binging on two or more episodes of the series in the same day.

 “We are absolutely thrilled that the response to Transparent has been so positive,” said Roy Price, Vice President of Amazon Studios. “Our goal is to create series that customers love, so it’s great to hear that Transparent has not only risen to the no. 1 series on Prime Instant Video, but that it’s deemed ‘binge worthy’ as well.”
