transparent musicale finale trailer

If a beloved series runs for long enough, it will inevitably have a musical episode — usually a one-off gimmick that will change the language of the show for one hour, before reverting back to the house style. But Transparent is doing something unusual by making its musical episode its finale. We’ve known for over a year now that the fifth season of Amazon’s Emmy-winning series would be its last, but we have a new trailer giving us a glimpse at Jill Soloway‘s musical finale, which kills Jeffrey Tambor’s transgender character and family matriarch Maura Pfefferman off screen and shows how the Pfeffermans grapple with that loss through song and dance. Watch the official Transparent Musicale Finale trailer below.

But its main character played by Tambor, the transgender Maura Pfefferman, will be nowhere in sight. The feature-length series finale of the acclaimed series will be a musical episode that kills off Maura at the beginning and follows “the Pfefferman family as they come together in their grief and celebrate her life.”

Jeffrey Tambor May Not Quit ‘Transparent’ After All

Jeffrey Tambor Transparent

Early last month, actor Jeffrey Tambor, the star of Arrested Development and Amazon’s Transparent, was accused of repeatedly engaging in inappropriate behavior with his former assistant Van Barnes, as well as Transparent co-star Trace Lysette – both of whom happen to be trans women. By the end of the month, Tambor had released a statement loosely apologizing for his actions, and that statement also included what many took to be a resignation from the series: “Given the politicized atmosphere that seems to have afflicted our set,” he said, “I don’t see how I can return to Transparent.”

But apparently, that statement was premature because now The New York Times reports that Tambor has not quit the series.
