'Transparent': Jill Soloway Clarifies Showrunner Change and Previews Season 4

Written by 

Transparent has a new showrunner, but Jill Soloway will still be as involved as ever. "I could never leave the show in a million years. I’m going to be in it — writing, directing, living, loving, laughing, learning — every day until the very last day that it’s on," Soloway tells The Hollywood Reporter.

The creator of the Amazon series spoke with THR on Wednesday ahead of a Paley Center PaleyLive NY panel, which Soloway kicked off by also clarifying the news. Amazon recently announced that Jill Gordon would be joining as showrunner for season five, which was greenlit by the streamer last month ahead of season four's Sept. 22 release. Soloway explained that Gordon is replacing the departing showrunner, Bridget Bedard, who held the job since season two.

"I was always overseeing everything, but in terms of the title of showrunner, that was Bridget Bedard’s," Soloway explains. "For season five, Jill Gordon’s going to be doing the job that Bridget Bedard was doing. Because I also direct and write and I’m an executive producer, I have a lot of things to do that make it so I actually need a showrunner to collaborate with, at my side. I’m still as involved as ever.
