Page 3 of 6

Transparent is not new to the scene — it’s gotten so much award recognition that the cast and crew might be getting annoyed with the clutter of trophies littering their residences — but its fourth season introduces major change to the series. After Maura makes an abrupt discovery when presenting at a conference, the Pfeffermans convene in Israel to seek out more information about the family’s history. Amidst touristic moments like visiting the Western Wall and taking camel rides, the family members fumble their way toward further self-discovery, this time divorced from the LA bubble that has served as the series’ setting up to this point. Creator Jill Soloway has also confirmed that the new season will be more explicitly political — which is unsurprising and wholly welcome in the current climate.

Transparent is available to stream on Amazon Prime.
