Transparent S2 and Man in the High Castle release dates announced by Amazon

Amazon has announced launch dates for the second season of the Golden Globe-winning Transparent

The next series of the Jeffrey Tambor-starring drama will land on December 4 in the UK on Prime Instant Video. 

Picking up where the previous series left off, the show follows Tambor as Maura Pfefferman, a retired college professor who comes out as transgender to her family. Inspired by events from show creator Jill Soloway’s own life, the show made TV history by becoming the first ever streaming show to earn a Golden Globe. 

As well as Transparent’s second series, Amazon has announced launch dates for The Man In The High Castle, an upcoming treatment of Philip K Dick’s famous alternative history novel, set in a North America occupied by German and Japanese forces after an Allied defeat in World War 2. 

The pilot episode of The Man In the High Castle can be watched on Prime Instant Video now but the full first series will land on November 20. 

Before both of those land, Amazon Prime customers will be able to stream two new shows – Hand of God, which arrives September 4 and Red Oaks, which debuts on October 9. 

Hand of God stars Ron Perlman as a rapist-hunting lawman-turned-vigilante on the warpath. On a more light-hearted note, Red Oaks, originally due to air last year, offers a retro-tastic look at a suburban tennis club in the 1980’s. 

In the new year, Mozart in the Jungle’s second series will also start streaming in the UK from January 6. 

The drama, which takes a look behind the curtain of the New York Symphony Orchestra, as documented by Blair Tindall’s memoir of the same name, was given the green light for a second series earlier this year. 

Next year will also see the arrival of the new Clarkson, Hammond and May-fronted Top Gear sequel. A lunch date for the new show hasn’t been announced yet – all we know so far is that i’ts coming sometime in 2016. 

Prime Instant Video costs £5.99/month and is also included free with a £79/year Amazon Prime subscription.
