Amazon Prime’s first original series “Mozart in the Jungle” has been a hit, so much so that it won the Golden Globe for Best Comedy, Musical TV Show, and so did its lead star, Gael García Bernal for Best Actor in a Comedy Series. The show has been on for two successful season so far and has just been confirmed for a third one. The news were confirmed via the show’s Twitter account, where they announced “it wasn’t over.”

“‘Mozart in the Jungle’ is “a show that has allowed me to enjoy and understand a little bit about classical music,” García Bernal told Entertainment Weekly at the Golden Globes last month. The Mexican actor plays the role of Rodrigo de Souza, an off-beat Latino conductor who converses with the historical composers who live inside his head. The young Latino conductor teeters to stay in control in a world of powered privilege and stuffy tradition, his character is said to be loosely based on real-life L.A. philharmonic conductor Gustavo Adolfo Dudamel.

Jason Schwartzman spoke on behalf of all three executive producers (including himself, Roman Coppola and Paul Weitz) and said they’re very grateful to Amazon for “endowing their orchestra with another season.” “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 exclaimed.
