Will 'Mozart In The Jungle' Return For Season 3? 7 Shows To Stream While You Wait For News
As part of Amazon's push to release original content — just like fellow streaming services Netflix and Hulu — the site released the first season of Mozart in the Jungle way back in February 2014 (can you believe it was so long ago?). After nearly two years, Amazon has released the second season of the Golden Globe-nominated comedy, and fans everywhere cheered as they prepared to marathon it. But, now the question becomes, will Amazon renew Mozart in the Jungle for Season 3?
From what I can tell, all signs point to: yes! Mozart in the Jungle Season 1 was very well received by critics and nabbed two Golden Globe nominations. Not only was Gael García Bernal nominated as Best Actor In A Television Comedy Series for his performance as Rodrigo, but the series as a whole was recognized for Best Television Series - Comedy or Musical. Add in the fact that Amazon has only increased its original content since Mozart in the Jungle premiered, and there's no reason for the service not to renew the series if Season 2 is as successful as its first. Of course, considering the nearly two-year break between Seasons 1 and 2, fans would likely have to wait a very long stretch for that potential third season, so I've gathered a list of seven other streaming series to tide you over while you wait for news on more Mozart in the Jungle.
This U.K. comedy series is available on Amazon as well, so it's perfect for when you've finished your marathon of Mozart in the Jungle. The series follows Rob and Sharon, a couple who officially get together after Sharon becomes pregnant from their affair while Rob is in the U.K. on business. It's kind of like Knocked Up, but British.
Master of None
Aziz Ansari's Netflix comedy series is still relatively new, so if you haven't watched it yet, you're forgiven. Still, if you enjoyed the humor of Mozart in the Jungle, Master of None may be right up your alley. Plus, the show has received its own helpings of critical acclaim, so you know it has to be good. (It is, trust me.)
This Hulu original series focuses on a newly-divorced woman living with her brother and daughter as they all try to navigate the tricky situations of dating in the 21st century. It's relatable, hilarious, and certainly worth a watch.
Another of Amazon's critically successful original series, Transparent took home the 2015 Golden Globe for Jeffrey Tambor's portrayal of Maura Pfefferman and another trophy for Best Television Series - Comedy or Musical. Honestly, Transparent should be on everyone's watch list if they haven't seen it already.
Garfunkel and Oates
If you're looking for more musical dramedy, Garfunkel and Oates may be your next streaming favorite. The show follows the titular folk duo who are trying to hit it big in Hollywood with their satirical music. The first season of this IFC show is available for you to watch on Netflix, so what are you waiting for?
You're the Worst
FXX's comedy about two narcissists managing to find love with each other is surprisingly relatable, heartfelt, and deeply emotional television, especially in Season 2. You can watch both seasons of You're the Worst on Hulu and I dare you not to fall in love with Gretchen, Jimmy, Lindsay, and Edgar.
The Man in the High Castle
Okay, this one isn't a comedy (like, at all), but it is one of Amazon's newest acclaimed original series. Based on the Philip K. Dick novel of the same name, this show tells the story of people living an alternate history where the Axis powers (Germany, Italy, and Japan) won World War II. The show is exceptional, so even if it doesn't sound like your thing, it's at least worth trying out.
So though it may seem like we'll be getting a third season of Mozart in the Jungle at some point, if you need another new show to pass the time, there are plenty of options out there in the streaming world.
