'Mozart in the Jungle' Cast Talks Production, Season 3 as Release Date Looms: 'New Romance to Brew' and Shooting 'Pretty Soon' [PHOTOS]
UPDATE - August 8, 2016: "Mozart in the Jungle" announced the air date for its much anticipated Season 3. The release date is December 9 as mentioned in the Tweet that was posted yesterday, August 7, 2016 on its official Twitter account.
While there is still no concrete news on the dates when "Mozart in the Jungle's" third season will premiere, there are concrete details on a FYC screening and Q&A panel session that the cast participated in on April 21, 2016 at the Roosevelt Hotel in Hollywood.
The event was preceded by red carpet entrances, photo shoots and interviews and succeeded by an after-party appropriately accompanied by an ensemble playing classical music. Latin Post provides some photos of the evening down below.
Cast Talks Season 3: 'New Romance To Brew', Season 3 Shooting 'Soon'
In red carpet interviews provided by Red Carpet Report, host Jada Montemarano interviews Gael Garcia Bernal (Maestro Rodrigo), Lola Kirke (Hailey), Bernadette Peters (Gloria), Saffron Burrows (Cynthia), Malcom McDowell (Maestro Thomas), and Roman Coppola - the series' executive producer. The cast is seen sharing details on the activities that take place behind the scene and they briefly touch upon the show's upcoming third season when asked.
While not many details on the third season were shared, we do learn from Bernadette Peters 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".
Here is an interview with one of the series' star, Gael Garcia Bernal who's originally from Guadalajara, Mexico:

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.
Show to Premiere in 2017?
It is likely that the third season either debuts in early or mid 2017.
