Transparent: Musical Finale (Amazon): Shelly Pfefferman Mourns Maura Via Song & Dance
She’s lost her mind.
The trailer for Amazon’s “Transparent: Musicale Finale,” (premiering Sept. 27), sees family matriarch Shelly Pfefferman (Judith Light) creating a musical to celebrate the life of her recently departed ex-husband-turned-ex-wife, Maura. Jeffrey Tambor played Maura for four seasons until being removed in the wake of multiple sexual harassment accusations. This Tamborless fifth and final season features remaining stars Light, Gaby Hoffmann, Jay Duplass, Amy Landecker and Kathryn Hahn in a Shelly-penned musical in which she recruits actors to play her children – prompting her incredulous son to tell his siblings, “She’s lost her mind.”
Per Amazon: The Transparent “Musicale Finale” takes the beloved Emmy and Golden Globe award-winning series to new heights as a dazzling movie fantasia inspired by the classic musicals that shaped a culture. When the Pfeffermans face a life-changing loss, they begin a journey hilarious and melancholy, brazen and bold. As they face this new transition, they confront grief and come together to celebrate connection, joy, and transformation.
Created by Jill Soloway, with original music by her sister, Faith Soloway, the fifth and final season also includes Alexandra Billings, Shakina Nayfack, Trace Lysette, as well as a number of fan favorite characters returning for this special send-off.
The series is executive produced by Jill Soloway, Faith Soloway, Andrea Sperling, and Joe Lewis.
