Jill Soloway Confirms Caitlyn Jenner Will Be In 'Transparent' Season 3
Welcome to the fam.
The GLAAD Media Awards just happened in California, celebrating all the good and progressive stuff that's happening in film and TV right now. Jill Soloway was there to accept her award for Outstanding Comedy Series (congrats, girl!), and afterwards she had some stuff to say about what we can expect from Transparent season 3 — for example, that Caitlyn Jenner is going to be in it.
Caitlyn will add a bit of Hollywood glamma to the very talented cast, which also includes people like Petra Collins, Hari Nef and Carrie Brownstein. Jill called the casting "a dream come true" during a post-GLADD interview, and said, "We are all part of the same community. A lot of the transwomen who work on our show are also in her show, I Am Cait. Lots of crossover. Lots of friends."
We don't yet know what character Caitlyn will play in the show that's delivered us so many #feelings, but Jill did say that they'll begin filming her scenes next week. We reckon there's a bunch of people who won't be happy with the casting — Cait being such a divisive figure, especially given her conservative political views — but we have faith that Jill will make it good.
In the meantime, let's revisit the trailer for season 2.
