Fans of the Amazon series Transport have just gotten some very good news. 

After months of uncertainty Amazon execs confirm that Transparent will return for a fifth season and fans will get the closure they long for. 

Back in June Amazon Studios chief Jennifer Salke told reporters that it was uncertain if a fifth season will happen and if it did what it would look like. Now she confirms that “we are planning a season 5 of the show. It exists. We know exactly what it is creatively.”

“Jill Soloway came in with something she’s excited about that [goes] beyond Transparent,” teased Salke at the annual Television Critics Association tour at the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills on Saturday. “So stay tuned in the next week or two for something we are incredibly excited about. It’s all good. We will give Transparent fans the closure they long for and do what is right for those fans.”

The season will “give Transparent fans the closure they long for and do right by fans and we would only want to behave that way,” she added.

Following sexual misconduct allegations Jeffrey Tambor, who played lead character Maura Pfefferman was fired from the show. Prior to his exit, he won two Emmys for the role.
