LOS ANGELES, April 5 (UPI) — Caitlyn Jenner will guest star on the Amazon original series “Transparent.”
Showrunner Jill Soloway announced at the 2016 GLAAD Media Awards that the 66-year-old television personality will appear on the comedy’s upcoming third season.
Soloway posted a photo of herself with Jenner and several other stars at the ceremony, writing, “It all happened in the ladies room #transparenttv #glaadawards.” Jenner herself shared a picture with Transparent star Judith Light.
“So excited to be at the #glaadawards tonight with the incredible @judithlight and the rest of this wonderful crowd! #transparent #iamcait,” she captioned the snapshot.
“Transparent” won Outstanding Comedy Series for a second consecutive year at the awards show. Jenner and her E! reality series, “I Am Cait,” meanwhile, tied for Outstanding Reality Program with TLC series “I Am Jazz.”
“I’m honored to share this award with Jazz,” the television personality said. “Getting to know the people at GLAAD has been a tremendous experience for me. They had helped me so much, working my way through the land mines of the trans world in the last year.”
Jenner came out as transgender last April and debuted her new look on the July cover of Vogue. “I Am Cait” documents her transition and airs Sundays at 9 p.m. ET. Jenner’s ex-spouse, Kris Jenner, will appear on the April 10 episode.
Jenner appeared on such shows as “CHiPS,” “Murder, She Wrote” and “The Love Boat” prior to her transition. “Transparent” follows Maura (Jeffrey Tambor), a transgender woman, as she and her family adjust to her transition.
