Amazon teases Season 4 of ‘Transparent’ with new trailer

Transparent - Season 4 Teaser Trailer | Amazon Video
Amazon Studios has released a new teaser trailer for the upcoming, fourth season of its award-winning series Transparent, which returns to Amazon Prime Video later this year.

The new teaser promises to further explore the journey the Pfefferman family takes along with Maura Pfefferman — the father they once knew as Morton Pfefferman — and the way their lives, loves, and outlook on the world evolve over time.

Series creator Jill Soloway returns as showrunner, writer, director, and executive producer on Transparent, which was the first show produced by Amazon Studios to win a major television award and the first show produced by a streaming media company to win a Golden Globe Award for Best Series. The first two seasons of Transparent collectively received 20 Primetime Emmy Award nominations, winning eight of the awards.

Along with Jeffrey Tambor in the lead role as Maura Pfefferman, the returning cast for the fourth season includes Judith Light (Dallas) as Maura’s ex-wife, Shelly Pfefferman, as well as Gaby Hoffmann (Girls), Amy Landecker (Louie), and Jay Duplass (Togetherness) as the Pfefferman siblings Alexandra, Sarah, and Joshua, respectively.

“In the new season, the Pfeffermans take off on a spiritual and political journey as they dig deep into their family’s history,” reads the official synopsis for the fourth season of the series. “Maura heads to Israel to speak at a conference and makes a startling discovery. Before long the rest of the family joins her for an explosive adventure. Adrift in the desert, Maura, Ali, Sarah, Josh, and Shelly ultimately set off on their own paths to find acceptance, love, and truth.”

The first season of Transparent premiered in 2014 to overwhelming positive response, and currently has a 98-percent “Fresh” rating on review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes. In the wake of the show’s critical success after two award-winning seasons, the fourth season of the series was green-lit before the third season’s premiere.

Season 4 of Transparent will premiere later this year.

Black Mirror season 6 trailer unleashes new nightmares
Aaron Paul in Black Mirror season 6.

What is the Black Mirror? It's your phone when it's turned off, or your monitor when it's unattended. Most of the time, it's brightly lit and if you're reading this now, then you're currently looking at it. It's an abyss, and sometimes it stares back at you. As for the Black Mirror TV series, think of it as a modern-day Twilight Zone without the redemptive stories. This show presents social media and technological horrors that can make your skin crawl with very few fantastical touches. But as you can see in the first full trailer for Black Mirror season 6, this is a series where reality is subjective at best.

Star Trek: Strange New Worlds season 2 trailer unveils Lower Decks crossover
Jack Quaid and Tawny Newsome in Star Trek: Strange New Worlds.

Crossovers are nothing new for the Star Trek franchise. That tradition began in 1987 when original series star DeForest Kelley reprised his role as Dr. Leonard "Bones" McCoy in the first episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation. But in the upcoming second season of Star Trek: Strange New Worlds, there's a unique crossover coming between this series and the animated program Star Trek: Lower Decks. For the first time in Star Trek history, two characters from an animated series will appear in live-action, and they will be portrayed by the same performers who provide their voices. As seen in the new Strange New Worlds trailer below, Tawny Newsome and Jack Quaid are reprising their respective roles as Beckett Mariner and Brad Boimler.
