Hear the hair! Conductor Rodrigo DeSousa, will take the stage once again in the hit Amazon Original Series Mozart in the Jungle. Amazon today announced it has greenlit a second season that will premiere early next year exclusively on Prime Instant Video. Based on the critically acclaimed memoir Mozart in the Jungle: Sex, Drugs & Classical Music by Blair Tindall, Mozart in the Jungle draws back the curtain at the New York Symphony, where artistic dedication and creativity collide with mind games, politicking and survival instincts.

The second season of Mozart in the Jungle will be Executive Produced by Roman Coppola (Moonrise Kingdom), Jason Schwartzman (The Darjeeling Limited), and Paul Weitz (About a Boy). Additional details will be announced in the coming months.
“The first season of Mozart in the Jungle was a big hit with our customers and I’m thrilled that we’re able to produce a second season,” said Roy Price, Vice President of Amazon Studios. “Roman, Jason, and Paul brought viewers into this rarely-seen world of the symphony. I know fans of the series will be in for treat when the second season premieres early next year.”
“Jason, Paul and I are delighted to work on a second season of Mozart in the Jungle,” said Roman Coppola. “There are so many interesting stories we want to tell and we’re looking forward to shooting another season with our wonderful cast and team of collaborators.

We can’t wait for the curtain to rise on season two.”
