This December will mark the return of Transparent, Amazon’s breakout series in which Jeffrey Tambor plays a transgender woman who comes out to her dysfunctional family. For its second season, the show is welcoming a very special addition to its cast: Angelica Huston! The actress will be playing a “new friend” of Maura, Tambor’s character.

“It was palpable,” Creator Jill Soloway told Variety of Huston and Tambor’s onscreen chemistry. “I was directing them together and I was watching through the monitor.” No further details of Huston’s character have been released.
