Transparent, which stars Jeffrey Tambor (a TVLine Performer of the Week) and released its 10 freshman episodes on Sept. 26, stands as the most binge-watched TV series on Prime Instant Video — with nearly 80 percent of all viewers watching two or more episodes of the series in the same day, a consumption rate higher than any previous release.

“We are absolutely thrilled that the response to Transparent has been so positive,” Amazon Studios VP Roy Price said in a statement. “Given all this great feedback, it only makes sense to bring the Pfeffermans back next year in Season 2.”
