Caitlyn Jenner will appear in the upcoming season of Amazon‘s hit show Transparent

Jenner is set to start filming scenes for season 3 next week, and series creator Jill Soloway is hoping the potential crossover between Jenner’s reality show I Am Cait and Transparent will be beneficial. During an interview at Saturday’s GLAAD Media Awards, Soloway said, “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 didn’t offer details about Jenner’s role. Transparent picked up a Golden Globe last year for Best Television Series, Musical or Comedy, and star Jeffrey Tambor, who plays trans woman Maura, won Best Actor. It was also the first original Amazon series to win. 

Transparent and I Am Cait both took home awards at Saturday’s GLAAD event. Jenner’s show tied with I Am Jazz—the TLC show about trans teen and YouTube star Jazz Jennings—for Outstanding Reality Program.
