Amazon has opted against a five season of dramedy “Mozart in the Jungle,” which now aired its final episode on Feb. 16 of this year. “We are so proud of the four seasons we made of this show and are grateful to the cast, crew, fans and Amazon for writing this symphony with us. We hope people will keep finding the show for years to come,” said executive producers Paul Weitz, Roman Coppola, Jason Schwartzman and Will Graham in a joint statement.
Debuting in February 6, 2014, “Mozart in the Jungle” was inspired by “Mozart in the Jungle: Sex, Drugs, and Classical Music,” oboist Blair Tindall’s 2005 memoir of her professional career in New York, playing various high-profile gigs with ensembles including the New York Philharmonic and the orchestras of numerous Broadway shows. The series starred Gael García Bernal as Rodrigo, a character based on conductor Gustavo Dudamel, alongside Lola Kirke, Malcolm McDowell, Saffron Burrows, Hannah Dunne, Peter Vack, and Bernadette Peters. A total of 40 episodes of “Mozart in the Jungle” were produced.
