When a zany little comedy about the world of classical music took home not one but two Golden Globes in 2016, it was something of a surprise as the show (though a critical darling), hadn’t reached the cultural saturation of fellow Amazon series Transparent.
Nevertheless, Mozart in the Jungle returns for season three a big winner — boasting performances by Metrosource faves including Gael Garcia Bernal as a tempermental conductor and Bernadette Peters as a beleaguered board member. This year, Bernal is also slated to direct an episode, and it looks like Peters won’t be the only one showing off her impressive pipes; Spectre standout Monica Belluci is set to join the cast playing an iconic opera singer as the show’s fictional New York Symphony heads to Europe. The season debuts December 9. amazon.com
