There is no show as heart-wrenchingly poignant as Transparent. As we gather our Kleenex for Season 3, we can revel in this trailer, which offers just enough to get us good and excited. In fact, just the opening chord of the accompanying score is enough to send chills up my spine and momentarily soften my cold, dead heart.
So what can we glean from these two glorious minutes? For one, we’ll be seeing more of Anjelica Huston’s Vicky (yasssssss), who appears to continue her romantic relationship with Maura (Jeffrey Tambor). Speaking of Maura, she’s ready to graduate from “Moppa” to plain old “Mom,” a request that other Mom, Shelley (played to shrill Jew-mom perfection by Judith Light), seems none to pleased by.
But, true to form, this season will hardly scratch the surface of what it means to be trans, diving deep into Maura’s transition (be gone, excess skin!) and continuing to explore its effect on her family. One member copes by joining social media (you can probably guess who). Oh, and the trailer also offers a glimpse of Katherine Hahn, our lord and savior.
Alright, Amazon Prime, you’ll hold onto me at least until September 23rd, when I binge watch the entire season in one day.
