Mozart in the Jungle will be striking up the romance this February, when the show returns for a fourth season.
The Emmy and Golden Globe Award-winning Amazon series, based on the memoir Mozart in the Jungle: Sex, Drugs & Classical Music by Blair Tindall, draws back the curtain at the New York Symphony, where artistic dedication and creativity collide with mind games, politicking and survival instincts. The show stars Gael Garcia Bernal as Rodrigo, a maverick conductor who has ruffled feathers ever since he arrived in Season 1. Along the way, he has helped the show win a Golden Globe for Best Actor (Comedy or Musical), while a cast including Lola Kirke as oboist Hailey has seen the show win Best Series to boot.
New melodies will arise in Season 4, as Rodrigo (Gael García Bernal) and Hailey (Lola Kirke) take their relationship public. As Rodrigo learns what it means to be a boyfriend, Hailey enters a competition in Japan to prove herself as a conductor. Will they be able to balance the demands between their careers and relationship or will it tear them apart?
Thomas (Malcolm McDowell), meanwhile, joins a start-up orchestra in Brooklyn that challenges Gloria (Bernadette Peters).
Executive produced by Roman Coppola, Paul Weitz, Jason Schwartzman, Will Graham, and Caroline Baron, Mozart in the Jungle’s fourth season will also welcome a new face to its ensemble: Michael Emerson who will have a recurring role as Morton Norton, an eccentric collector of classical music ephemera and curiosities who prefers the past to the present and spends his days alone in a gothic mansion surrounded by classical music relics, dressed as a 16th century homicidal composer named Gesualdo.
Season 4 of Mozart in the Jungle premieres on Amazon Prime Video on Friday 16th February 2018. Here’s the first trailer:
Michael Emerson joins Mozart in the Jungle Season 4
31st July 2017
Michael Emerson has signed on for Mozart in the Jungle Season 4.
Amazon’s original series, which based on the memoir Mozart in the Jungle: Sex, Drugs & Classical Music by Blair Tindall, draws back the curtain at the New York Symphony, where artistic dedication and creativity collide with mind games, politicking and survival instincts.
The show stars Gael Garcia Bernal as Rodrigo, a maverick conductor who has ruffled feathers at the New York Symphony ever since he arrived in Season 1. Along the way, he has helped the show win a Golden Globe for Best Actor (Comedy or Musical), while a cast including Lola Kirke has seen the show win Best Series to boot.
Now, a new face will be joining the ensemble: Emerson, who has won Emmys for his work in Lost and ABC’s The Practice, will play Morton Norton, whom Deadline describes as “an eccentric collector of classical music ephemera and curiosities who prefers the past to the present” and “spends his days alone in a gothic mansion surrounded by classical music relics, dressed as a 16th century homicidal composer named Gesualdo”. Sounds like he’ll fit right in.
Season 4 of Mozart in the Jungle is expected to premiere before the end of 2017.
Amazon orders Mozart in the Jungle Season 4
31st January 2017
Amazon has renewed Mozart in the Jungle for a fourth season.
The show, which based on the memoir Mozart in the Jungle: Sex, Drugs & Classical Music by Blair Tindall, draws back the curtain at the New York Symphony, where artistic dedication and creativity collide with mind games, politicking and survival instincts. It sounds like a niche proposition, but the series bagged a double Golden Globe win in 2016, taking home the prize for both Best TV Series (Comedy or Musical) and Best Actor (Comedy or Musical) for Gael Garcia Bernal’s sexy, maverick conductor, Rodrigo.
Bernal will return for the fourth season, alongside co-star Lola Kirke (American Made), as the series continues the story of the talented musicians who perform and live with passion under the baton of its spirited maestro. Along with Bernal and Kirke, Mozart in the Jungle also stars Saffron Burrows (Night of the Lotus), Malcolm McDowell (American Satan), Bernadette Peters (Smash), and Hannah Dunne (Caring). The series is executive produced by Roman Coppola (Moonrise Kingdom), Jason Schwartzman (The Darjeeling Limited), Paul Weitz (About a Boy), and Will Graham (Alpha House).
“We’re all delighted to be back for a fourth season and to share the further tales of our orchestra and all the artists who comprise it,” says Coppola. “For the fans who have been so enthusiastic about our show, we’re so happy to have an audience that wants to see stories about the arts, music, and all these characters we’ve invented.”
“Amazon Studios has been built by the risky, creative genius of shows like Mozart in the Jungle and Red Oaks,” adds Joe Lewis, Head of Comedy and Drama, Amazon Studios. “We are excited to see how the amazing creators, casts and crews top themselves next season.”
The announcement arrives within a few months of the premiere of the show’s third season, which we described in our review as “one of the nicest, smartest, wittiest and catchiest programmes around”.
“In this often-heralded “golden age of TV”, the world is full of sleek, cynical, calculating shows, from Westworld to Mr. Robot, and, while they can be masterpieces in their own right, it’s a genuine pleasure to have something so upbeat to watch,” we added. “It’s not that Mozart in the Jungle is always happy; it has a warm-heartedness that never fails to bring a smile to your face. And that lightness of touch isn’t easy to pull off; this is one of the easiest things to watch on telly, but that doesn’t mean it’s shallow. As Season 3 sees it build in volume, substance and theme, Mozart in the Jungle remains a source of fantastically composed comedy that’s still finding new ways to play the same notes. Long may that continue.”
Mozart in the Jungle Season 4 will begin production later this year and is expected to premiere on Amazon Prime Video in the US and UK by the end of 2017.
Season 1, 2 and 3 of Mozart in the Jungle are now available exclusively on Amazon Prime Video, as part of a £5.99 monthly subscription.
