Transparent cancelled after Season 5?
Jay Duplass has broken silence on the future of the Amazon series following the axing of Jeffrey Tambor amid sexual misconduct allegations.
Speaking to Daily Beast, the actor reflected on events that have placed a cloud over the show’s survival, but says “we all want it to continue” into Season 6:
“I think right now where Jill [Soloway] is at is just trying to figure out what that looks like. It’s interesting. To some people, it seems impossible without Maura. But I don’t know.
“For me, Maura is about Jill’s parent, who transitioned from being a man to being a woman. But Jill, themself, has been going through this transition where Jill is moving to a place that I think is more representative of where non-gender conformity is going, which is not a binary state — ‘I was a man, now I’m a woman.’ Gaby’s character Ali is now embodying that more immediate, more imminent journey. So, from a creative standpoint, I don’t think any of us feel like it’s a dead end without Maura.”
“The whole experience is painful and really hard to process. But the “huge confidence [I have in Soloway’s] ability to make timely art that enlightens us to what’s coming, [gives me faith that the show can move forward without Tambor].”
Jill’s been under so much pressure, not knowing whether Jeffrey’s going to be in the show or not, regime changes at Amazon, whether they need to end the show or re-open it, trying to do justice to the legacy of their family, and at the same time just emotionally processing the implosion of our family of the people who make Transparent. “So it’s been an incredibly traumatic time.”
Transparent Season 5 is slated to release in 2019. Amazon has not cancelled or renewed Transparent Season 6, with the future of the show unclear.
Stay tuned as we continue to track the cancel/renew status of Transparent Season 6…
