Caitlyn Jenner is set to join the cast of Amazon’s acclaimed series Transparent for its third season.
Series creator Jill Soloway called the casting “a dream come true” during an interview with the AP at the GLAAD Media Awards on Saturday. “We are all part of the same community. A lot of the transwomen who work on our show are also in her show, I Am Cait. Lots of crossover. Lots of friends.”
Soloway wouldn’t give away any details on Jenner’s character but said they’ll begin filming her scenes next week.
Starring Jeffrey Tambor, Amy Landecker, Judith Light, Gaby Hoffman, and Jay Duplass, Transparent earned two Golden Globes and five Emmys since its debut in 2014. The series took home Outstanding Comedy Series at the GLAAD Media Awards, while I Am Cait tied with I Am Jazz for Outstanding Reality Program.

“I want to start off first by saying how honored I am to share this award with Jazz [Jennings],” Jenner said during her acceptance speech. “We have so many issues with trans youth suicide rates, murder rates. With your example and your show, it gives these young people hope that they can survive those very difficult times as they grow up and try to figure out who they are.”
