Fans of Amazon's award-winning original series Transparent, rejoice: The must-watch show, starring Jeffrey Tambor as a patriarch who comes out late in life as a transgender woman, has been picked up for a third season, The Hollywood Reporter confirms. The news comes months ahead of the premiere of the show's highly anticipated second season.

Series creator Jill Soloway has received a major show of faith from Amazon Studios as well, inking an overall deal with the digital content provider to develop future projects exclusively for its Prime Instant Video streaming service. Soloway, who previously worked as a writer and producer on Six Feet Under and United States of Tara, was inspired to create the show after her own parent come out as a transgender woman in 2011. Soloway will continue at the helm as series showrunner in coming seasons. Andrea Sperling, known largely for producing roles on movies including Like Crazy and But I'm a Cheerleader, has been promoted to executive producer on the groundbreaking series.

"I am blown away by the creative freedom Amazon gives me," Soloway told THR. "I can't wait to reveal where this journey is going to take us." When the second season, which begins production in Los Angeles just next week, hits Amazon this fall — you can bet we'll be watching (and so will Kim and Caitlyn, we're guessing).
