Amazon has renewed “Mozart in the Jungle” for a third season.
The comedy is returning, the streaming site announced on Tuesday, following its Golden Globe wins last month for best TV series (comedy or musical) and best actor in a TV series (comedy or musical) for star Gael García Bernal.
Bernal’s conductor character Rodrigo and the show’s other musicians will head to Europe in the new season, which begins production later this year.
“‘Mozart in the Jungle’ bursts with creativity and passion, and offers audiences something truly unique,” said Joe Lewis, Amazon Studios’ head of half-hour series. “Amazon is proud to have two of the most risky and enthralling comedy series on television today.”
Based on Blair Tindall’s memoir “Mozart in the Jungle: Sex, Drugs and Classical Music,” the show is exec produced by Roman Coppola, Jason Schwartzman and Paul Weitz.
It follow the New York Symphony, where artists have to engage in politics to survive the competitive industry. “Mozart in the Jungle” also stars Lola Kirke, Saffron Burrows, Malcolm McDowell, Bernadette Peters, Hannah Dunne and Schwartzman.
“We’re grateful to Amazon for endowing our orchestra with another season,” Schwartzman said on behalf of fellow executive producers Coppola and Weitz. “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.”
