Somehow, Jeffrey Tambor Might Still Return For Transparent's New Season
Dec 07 2017 by Francis Osborne
The probe comes on the heels of the resignation of Roy Price (pictured, left, with Tambor in June 2017), the head of Amazon Studios, in October over claims of sexual harassment. But according to a new article from the New York Times, no final decision has been made just yet. By the end of the month, Tambor had released a statement loosely apologizing for his actions, and that statement also included what many took to be a resignation from the series: "Given the politicized atmosphere that seems to have afflicted our set", he said, "I don't see how I can return to Transparent".
ET reached out to Tambor's rep for clarification.
Tambor was accused of sexual harassment by his former personal assistant, a trans woman named Van Barnes, in a private Facebook post which was later circulated and reported on by the media. On Thursday, guest star Trace Lysettecame forward with further alleged instances of inappropriate behavior. In a statement to the New York Times, Tambor's agent Allan Mayer said that a final decision hasn't actually been made by either the actor or Amazon Studios. "What has become clear over the past weeks, however, is that this is no longer the job I signed up for four years ago". Since Tambor's statement, makeup artist Tamara Delbridgen claimed that Tambor forcibly kissed her the set of Never Again in 2001.
Lysette, who like Barnes is transgender, said that Tambor assaulted her in a corner of the soundstage while they were waiting for a camera setup for a pivotal scene in the second season.

She was subdued and mostly absent from promotion leading up to the Nunes fight and has largely shunned the spotlight since. Following the two losses to Nunes, UFC president Dana White has been vocal about his opposition to Rousey's return.
Writers are now at work on a fifth season of "Transparent", though it continues to remain unclear if Tambor would continue to star in it.
After the allegations emerged, Tambor seemed to be stepping down from the show. Tambor's Maura, however, was the driving force behind the show.
"Playing Maura Pfefferman on Transparent has been one of the greatest privileges and creative experiences of my life", the Emmy and Golden Globe-winning actor told Deadline.
