First Posted: Sep 17, 2016 09:48 AM EDT

The much anticipated season 3 of the Golden Globes Award-winning and Amazon Original series "Mozart in the Jungle" will premiere on Amazon Prime Video on December 9, 2016. This release date of the new season was announced at the beginning of August and while not much regarding the upcoming season was revealed, Amazon's tweet at the time of announcement included the following phrase "A whole new tune. Dec. 9".

We may not know what the phrase "A whole new tune" is referring to, but we are not completely left in the dark. Cast members of the hit show have been tweeting and posting bit and pieces of information about season 3 and these have been collected and listed below for your review. Thus, the following is everything Latin Post knows regarding the show so far based on the information the core cast has been feeding its social media followers as well as reports that have been going up from different media outlets.

Also additional details Latin Post shared previously include the following:

Prema Cruz is joining "Mozart in the Jungle" Season 3 as a recurring cast member who is a single mother. Cruz's character will be a potential love interest for Maestro Rodrigo (Gael Garcia Bernal).

Monica Bellucci from "Spectra," will appear as a guest star for "Mozart in the Jungle" Season 3. The star will play an iconic opera singer that goes by the name Alessandra. In "Mozart in the Jungle" Season 3, Alessandra will become one of Rodrigo's greatest collaborators. In the series, Alessandra asks Rodrigo to conduct her new performance after being out of the spotlight for so many years. The star known for her crazy life off-stage and her deep performances, will make a return to the lime light and will stop at nothing to get there.

Bernadette Peters previously stated that a "new romance is to brew" in the orchestra's trip to Europe and Saffron Burrows mentions that season three shooting will take place "pretty soon".

Growth of Amazon's Original Series and a Victory for Latinos and Diversity in Film

As announced in February earlier this year, the series is slated to return for yet another series.

The renewal of "Mozart in the Jungle" is all the more prominent because the series' main topic relates the adventures of a New York Symphony Orchestra and its attempts to remain relevant.

The first season established the difficult transition from one conductor to another as well as the journey of a young oboist trying to prove her worth in a highly competitive world.

The second season of "Mozart in the Jungle" took up the internal complications of a labor dispute while also opening the world of the story and having the orchestra travel to Latin America and Mexico. The third season, which picks up after the ramifications of the labor dispute, is set to take the orchestra all the way to Europe.

It is impossible to overlook the fact that the series is headlined by an Mexican actor Gael Garcia Bernal, a victory for those battling for diversity in film and television. Bernal won the Golden Globe for best actor in a comedy series this past year.

The wins at the Golden Globes undoubtedly raised the profile of the show and renewal for another season will probably also increase the budget of the series.
