Amazon Orders ‘Mozart in the Jungle’ for a Third Season

Amazon announced on Tuesday that it will pick up its comedy-drama “Mozart in the Jungle” for a third season.

The series was inspired by oboist Blair Tindall’s 2005 memoir of her professional career in the New York classical music scene. It stars Gael García Bernal, Lola Kirke, Saffron Burrows, Bernadette Peters and Malcolm McDowell.

“Mozart in the Jungle” was developed by Roman Coppola, Jason Schwartzman and Alex Timbers. It debuted on Amazon in 2014 and premiered its second season in December 2015.

Its third season pick-up comes a month after it won two major Golden Globe Awards: one for the year’s Best TV Series-Comedy or Musical and another for Best Lead Actor in a TV Series-Comedy or Musical to Bernal.
