Amazon Renews ‘Mozart in the Jungle’ and ‘Red Oaks’

'Mozart in the Jungle' Heads into Season Four; 'Red Oaks' to Return for Third - and Final - Season

Amazon has greenlit a fourth season of dramedy “Mozart in the Jungle” and a final, third season of comedy series “Red Oaks.” Both are scheduled to premiere later this year on Prime Video in the US and UK, and additional territories in the future.

Based on memoir “Mozart in the Jungle: Sex, Drugs & Classical Music” by Blair Tindall, “Mozart in the Jungle” draws back the curtain at the New York Symphony, where artistic dedication and creativity collide with mind games, politicking and survival instincts. Starring Gael García Bernal (“Neruda”), and Lola Kirke (“American Made”), “Mozart in the Jungle” will begin production later this year and will continue the story of the talented musicians who perform and live with passion under the baton of its spirited conductor, best known simply as Rodrigo.

“Mozart in the Jungle” also stars Saffron Burrows (“Night of the Lotus”), Malcolm McDowell (“American Satan”), Bernadette Peters (“Smash”), and Hannah Dunne (“Caring”).

Set in the 1980s, “Red Oaks” explores the comic misadventures of the misfit staffers and clueless members of a country club in suburban New Jersey. Starring Craig Roberts (“Submarine: The Fundamentals of Caregiving”), and Paul Reiser (“Mad About You”), “Red Oaks” will begin production later this year on its third and final season, concluding the stories of aspiring young filmmaker David Meyers and the colorful characters he’s met on his journey to adulthood. Also featured are Richard Kind (“Inside Out”), Jennifer Grey (“Dirty Dancing”), Alexandra Socha (“Cut Shoot Kill”), Oliver Cooper (“Office Christmas Party”), Ennis Esmer (“Blindspot”), Gina Gershon (“Staten Island Summer”) and Alexandra Turschen (“Boy Meets Girl”).
