Amazon's Mozart in the Jungle can continue a stellar 2016 with the news it's been renewed for a Season 3. The renewal comes just weeks after the series won Best Musical or Comedy at January's Golden Globe awards and Gael Garcia Bernal nabbed a starring trophy.
The series is executive produced by Roman Coppola, Jason Schwartzman and Paul Weitz and stars Bernal, Schwartzman, Malcolm McDowell, Bernadette Peters and Lola Kirke as members of the New York Symphony playing games and politicking to survive in the cutthroat world. The show joins Transparent andTumble Leafon the list of Amazon shows to score a third bow.
Season 3 will see symphony conductor Rodrigo (Bernal) and many of the show's musicians explore their talents in Europe. "Mozart in the Jungle bursts with creativity and passion, and offers audiences something truly unique," Amazon Studios' head of half-hour series Joe Lewis said in a statement. "Amazon is proud to have two of the most risky and enthralling comedy series on television today."
"We're grateful to Amazon for endowing our orchestra with another season," Schwartzman added. "We can't wait to follow our characters through the vast world of music, whether performing on a subway platform or in the grand concert halls of Europe."
Production on Season 3 is set to begin later this year.
