Amazon Gives ‘Mozart in the Jungle’ A Fourth Season

Amazon’s Mozart in the Jungle was a surprise winner for a Golden Globe award last year (and a nominee this year). And it looks like it’s not done yet. Amazon Studios announced today the show would be coming back for a fourth season.

This makes Mozart and Transparent the only Amazon originals to make it to season 4.

If you haven’t caught the show yet, here’s what you’re missing. It’s based on the critically acclaimed book Mozart in the Jungle: Sex, Drugs & Classical Music. It’s a “behind the curtain” look at the New York Symphony orhcestra, with artistic dedication crashing in to mind games, politics, and survival. The news season should begin production this year, and will continue the story of the musicians who dedicate their lives to this craft, and their spirited conductor Rodrigo.

Mozart won a 2016 Golden Globe for “Best Musical or Comedy Series,” with star Gael Garcia Bernal earning an award too. Both Bernal and the show itself are up for Golden Globes again in 2017.

Mozart‘s executive producers said they were “delighted to be back for a fourth season” and excited “to share the further tales of our orchestra and all the artists who comprise it. For the fans who have been so enthusiastic about our show, we’re so happy to have an audience that wants to see stories about the arts, music, and all these characters we’ve invented.”

On their side of things, Amazon Studios’ Head of Comedy Joe Lewis said “Amazon Studios has been built by the risky, creative genius of shows like Mozart in the Jungle and Red Oaks,” adding they were “excited to see how the amazing creators, casts and crews top themselves next season.”

The next season of Mozart will be availableexclusively on Amazon Video, a service that’s free to all Prime members.
