He later apologized to his co-star on that show, saying "I am deeply sorry if any action of mine was ever misinterpreted by anyone as being sexually aggressive or if I ever offended or hurt anyone". "But no final decision for next year has been made". Now, however, a New York Times investigation suggests that neither Tambor nor Amazon have come to a final decision about how to continue the show. This was based on a statement from Tambor in which decried the current "toxic atmosphere" and the "politicisation" on-set, leading him to say it was "very hard for me to see how I can possibly return".
Jeffrey Tambor may not be leaving the Transparent after his rep said he hadn't actually quit. I adamantly and vehemently reject and deny any and all implication and allegation that I have ever engaged in any improper behavior toward this person or any other person I have ever worked with.
"Playing Maura Pfefferman on Transparent has been one of the greatest privileges and creative experiences of my life", the actor told Deadline last month. He won Emmys for the role in 2015 and 2016. Amazon has launched an investigation into the claims, and the series has been on hiatus as the writers figure out whether or not they will continue the series without its lead character.
Transparent Season 4 is now available on Amazon Prime.
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.
