Morning Brew – “Transparent” renewed for a second season


Good morning!

In honor of Karman Kregloe‘s departure from the site, our #TBT is dedicated to We’re Getting Nowhere.


If you watched Arrow last night, here’s a look at next week. (More on that later today.)

Good news: Amazon has renewed Transparent for a second season. Here’s what the VP of Amazon Studios, Roy Price, said about in the announcement:

“We are absolutely thrilled that the response to Transparent has been so positive. 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. Given all this great feedback, it only makes sense to bring the Pfeffermans back next year in season two.”

Hooray! Let’s hope there’s a little more of this.
