SEATTLE, Feb. 9 (UPI) -- The Golden Globe-winning comedy Mozart in the Jungle has been renewed for a third season, Amazon announced Tuesday.

Starring Gael García Bernal and Lola Kirke, the show will go back into production later this year and "will continue the story of the talented musicians who perform and live with passion under the baton of its spirited conductor, best known simply as Rodrigo," a press release said.

The series is executive produced by Roman Coppola, Jason Schwartzman and Paul Weitz.

"Mozart in the Jungle bursts with creativity and passion, and offers audiences something truly unique," Joe Lewis, head of half-hour series for Amazon Studios, said in a statement. "Amazon is proud to have two of the most risky and enthralling comedy series on television today [along with Transparent.]"

"We're grateful to Amazon for endowing our orchestra with another season. We can't wait to follow our characters through the vast world of music, whether performing on a subway platform or in the grand concert halls of Europe," Schwartzman added.
