The Amazon television series “Mozart in the Jungle,” starring Mexican actor Gael Garcia Bernal, is headed for its third season, Variety reported Tuesday.
The series about classical music and the New York adventures of eccentric orchestra conductor Rodrigo de Souza was one of the big winners at the last Golden Globes, where it won the award for Best Television Series, Comedy or Musical, while Garcia Bernal took the prize for Best Actor in a Television Series, Comedy or Musical.
Together with the Mexican in the cast of “Mozart in the Jungle” are such performers as Lola Kirke, Saffron Burrows and Malcolm McDowell.
The series has also presented cameos of classical music artists like conductor Gustavo Dudamel and pianist Lang Lang.
Production of the new round of episodes will begin this year, and the new season will take Rodrigo de Souza and his musicians to Europe.
Based on the book “Mozart in the Jungle: Sex, Drugs and Classical Music” by Blair Tindall, the series is produced by Roman Coppola, Jason Schwartzman and Paul Weitz.
“We’re grateful to Amazon for endowing our orchestra with another season,” Schwartzman said.
“We can’t wait to follow our characters through the vast world of music, whether performing on a subway platform or in the grand concert halls of Europe,” he said.
