If we’ve learned anything from three season of Transparent, it’s that you’re never too old to try something new. Well, that and we’ll never be a neurotic as the Pfeffermans. In the new trailer for the fourth season of Jill Soloway’s beloved Amazon show, our favorite fucked up family of kvetching Jews are heading to a place they’ve never gone before: Israel.
Jeffrey Tambor’s Maura is set to head to the holy land for a conference and, in true Pfefferman style, the whole family is going along for the ride. Besides making their long-awaited trip to “Orthodox Jewish Disneyland,” everyone will also spend the season doing what they do best: having complicated sex and living wildly complicated lives.
“I’m learning things. You can just start again and never look back,” Moira explains in the opening monologue. What does this mean for the family? Shelly will don some amazing tracksuits while holding wine and polishing her newfound flair for theatrics and Sarah, Josh, and Ali will continue to not remember how many sexual partners they have. Alongside the preview and announcement that the Emmy and Golden Globe award-winning show will return on September 22, the cast and crew also released a statement condemning the president’s transgender military ban:
“We feel very lucky to get to make art inspired by themes of love, home and boundaries, and how they operate in both human beings as well as nations,” the joint statement begins. “Sharing this work amidst President Trump’s continued assault on the transgender community is painful... At Transparent we believe in the integrity of the trans community, which we know firsthand because we are all either trans or allies to the trans community. It is a revolutionary act for a trans person to simply leave the house and walk down the street. We tap into the incredible history of survival the trans community has achieved against all odds, knowing that our fight is noble and on the side of justice and human rights.”
