Fast becoming a cult favorite around the world, Amazon Prime’s Mozart in the Jungle, was this week confirmed for a fourth series. Production is set to begin later this year, ensuring the show starring Gael García Bernal will be back on our screens before the end of the year. Its third season premiered in full on December 9th.
Executive producer Roman Coppola said in a statement, “We’re all delighted to be back for a fourth season and to share the further tales of our orchestra and all the artists who comprise it. For the fans who have been so enthusiastic about our show, we’re so happy to have an audience that wants to see stories about the arts, music, and all these characters we’ve invented.”
Mozart in the Jungle is based on the book of the same name, and shows a different side of the New York Symphony, as drugs, sex, love and money clash with the music – often thanks to their Golden Globe winning Maestro Rodrigo (Gael García Bernal) and their young Oboist, played by Lola Kirke. Saffron Burrows, Malcolm McDowell and Bernadette Peters also star in the show. Roman Coppola, Jason Schwartzman, Paul Weitz, and Will Graham serve as Executive Producers.
It’s also been reported that Red Oaks, another Amazon Prime series, has been renewed for its third series – though it has been confirmed that this will be its final.
Mozart in the Jungle is available through Amazon Prime, and also streams on Stan in Australia. New episodes are expected at the end of 2017.
