How much does Amazon love “Transparent“? Well, they’ve already renewed the award-winning, critically acclaimed, audience loved show for a third season, but let’s not get ahead of ourselves. The second season of the Jill Soloway guided series is yet to air and on the way, and there’s an additional reason to put this one on your radar.
Andrea Arnold (“Fish Tank,” “Wuthering Heights“) has directed two episodes from the upcoming season. She’s joined behind the camera by Soloway herself, along with Marielle Heller (Sundance award winner “The Diary Of A Teenage Girl“), Stacie Passon (Berlin award winner “Concussion“), and Silas Howard. That’s a pretty terrific range of talent for the season’s ten episodes, and notably, a lineup led by women as well.
For Arnold, the gig continues what seems to be a swing toward the mainstream or at least, more accessible films than her previous efforts. She’s currently shooting “American Honey” starring Shia LaBeouf, and it’s her first feature production in the United States. And it’s exciting to see the filmmaker dip her toes into television as well, and we’ll be curious to see how the visually distinctive Arnold makes her mark on both projects.
“Transparent” season two will air this fall. [Women And Hollywood]
