While the future of the show is unclear, a musical based on it has been given the green light.

The fate of Amazon's original series Transparent may be unclear following the allegations of sexual misconduct against Jeffrey Tambor, Amazon has green-lit another of creator Jill Soloway's projects. In an interview with the New York Times, Soloway confirmed that Transparent: The Musical is a go. The musical, based on the critically-acclaimed show, will stream on Amazon next fall.

"It will hopefully feel like Jesus Christ Superstar mixed with La La Land mixed with Flight of the Conchords with something more Jewish thrown in," Soloway said. "A little Yentl." The musical has already been performed in New York and doesn't actually revolve around Pfefferman matriarch Maura, who was played on the show by Tambor. Instead, Transparent: The Musical centers around Judith Light's Shelly Pfefferman. "This idea of music rescuing our family was all there," Soloway added. "So we're like, let's just keep blowing on the flame. The Pfeffermans will live on, and that's what kept us going."
