Jeffrey Tambor to Appear in 'Arrested Development' Season 5

Jeffrey Tambor Transparent

A few days ago, we learned that after 5 years, we're getting a new season of Arrested Development on Netflix. The season, the show's fifth, was filmed past year, before the allegations were made against Tambor, the spokesman said.

Netflix has junked several projects to other embattled stars like Kevin Spacey, and ordered a complete re-write of House of Cards, so the decision to stick by Tambor has raised eyebrows among fans. Two women came forward in November to accuse Tambor of sexual harassment, including "Transparent" actress Trace Lysette and a former assistant.

It is not clear if there were any discussions about pulling Tambor from the show or not using the scenes in which he appeared.

"I am profoundly disappointed in Amazon's handling of these false accusations against me", Tambor told Deadline. That was around the same time the sexual misconduct allegations against Tambor were first reported. "I am even more disappointed in (series creator) Jill Soloway's unfair characterization of me as someone who would ever cause harm to any of my fellow cast mates". "I have never been a predator-ever", he said.

Tambor has won two Emmys and one Golden Globe for his role as Maura Pfefferman on the show, which is now in its fourth season. "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". Arrested Development will return to Netflix ... A Netflix spokesperson confirmed the news about "Arrested", which is set to return to the streaming service later this month.

"I can't speak for everybody, but I know there are a number of us who stand behind him - from the limited amount we know, we stand behind Jeffrey - and I am one of them", says Cross, who plays the lovable Fünke, father of Maeby (Shawkat) and on-again, off-again husband of Lindsay (Portia de Rossi). Netflix has not yet announced a premiere date for Season 5, as Hurwitz continues to put the finishing touches on the show.
