Caitlyn Jenner’s upcoming role on “Transparent” has been kept under wraps, but showrunner Jill Soloway has revealed details on her character.

Soloway told Variety Jenner will make an appearance alongside Ntozake Shange, author of “For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide / When the Rainbow Is Enuf,” in a television classic, a dream sequence.

“She’s in a dream sequence. [Gaby Hoffmann’s character] Ali has a kind of wild, nitrous-inspired goddess-worshiping dream sequence,” Soloway says. “And you can’t talk about the goddess without Ntozake Shange and Caitlyn Jenner who are both in the dream.”

Fellow castmembers Hoffman and Jeffrey Tambor told Variety Jenner was a good addition on set.

“She was great. She was a total natural. She was funny. She was great at improvising,” Hoffman says.

“She floats all boats,” Tambor told Variety. “Everybody is better for this in the community because of her authentic decision and her courageous decision.”

“Transparent” season three is available for streaming on Amazon Prime on Friday, Sept. 23.
