The first teaser trailer for the final season of Transparent reveals — Maura Pfefferman is dead.
Maura was played by Jeffrey Tambor who exited the revolutionary Amazon series following allegations of sexual misconduct. Since then, fans have been wondering how the story would continue, and end, without the titular matriarch.
The clip dropped Wednesday in celebration of Pride Month. It opens with the news that Maura has died. The final episode will follow the rest of the Pfefferman family — Shelly (Judith Light), Sarah (Amy Landecker), Josh (Jay Duplass), and Ali (Gaby Hoffmann) as they try to come to terms with their loss.
The Pfeffermans will be joined by returning fan favorites including Kathryn Hahn, Trace Lysette, Cherry Jones, Tig Notaro, Melora Hardin, and Rob Huebel.
Amazon’s official description promises “a dazzling two-hour movie musical fantasia. When the Pfeffermans face a life-changing loss, they begin a journey hilarious and melancholy, brazen and bold. As they face this new transition, they confront grief and come together to celebrate connection, joy, and transformation.”
The final send-off was directed and written by series creator Jill Soloway, and with original music by her sister and executive producer Faith Soloway.
