Almost exactly one month after Amazon’s Mozart in the Jungle picked up two resounding wins at the Golden Globes for Best TV Series (Comedy or Musical) and Best Actor for Gael García Bernal, Amazon announced that the half hour comedy will be renewed for a third season. Who wouldn’t renew this show? It’s sweet, funny, subtle, and evidently the Hollywood Foreign Press Association is a big fan. Of course, it may not be your traditional primetime network comedy fare, but Amazon isn’t a traditional network and Executive Producers Jason Schwartzman and Roman Coppola sure as hell aren’t your traditional network suits. Plus now, thanks to their shiny new statuettes, Mozart will hopefully have a whole new audience as it enters into its junior year.
So what can we expect from a third season of Mozart in the Jungle? Obviously it’s a bit early to know for sure, but the folks at Amazon have been nice enough to reveal that the New York Symphony will be hitting the road to Europe. For any other half hour comedy that would probably involve some stock footage of the Champs Elysee and vague references to crepes and wine, but since last year’s two-episode Mexico arc, the team behind Mozart has shown the world that they can do the travel like no one else in the game.
If you haven’t made your way through seasons one and two yet, stop putting it off cause those spoilers will be likely be rolling in by year’s end.
