Jeffrey Tambor won’t return for the fifth season of “Transparent” after being accused twice of sexual harassment on the set of the Amazon show.
“Playing Maura Pfefferman on Transparent has been one of the greatest privileges and creative experiences of my life. What has become clear over the past weeks, however, is that this is no longer the job I signed up for four years ago,” Tambor told Deadline.

“I’ve already made clear my deep regret if any action of mine was ever misinterpreted by anyone as being aggressive, but the idea that I would deliberately harass anyone is simply and utterly untrue. Given the politicized atmosphere that seems to have afflicted our set, I don’t see how I can return to Transparent.”
Van Barnes, Tambor’s former assistant, accused the actor of “inappropriate behavior,” claims that he called “baseless.”
A week later, Trace Lysette, who plays transgender yoga instructor Shea on the show, claimed that Tambor “got physical” with her on set.
“He came in close, put his bare feet on top of mine so I could not move, leaned his body against me, and began quick, discreet thrusts back and forth against my body,” she tweeted.
“I felt his penis on my hip through his thin pajamas and I pushed him off of me.”
Tambor also denied those allegations.

BACK TO SLIDE
“For the past four years, I’ve had the huge privilege — and huge responsibility — of playing Maura Pfefferman, a transgender woman, in a show that I know has had an enormous, positive impact on a community that has been too long dismissed and misunderstood. Now I find myself accused of behavior that any civilized person would condemn unreservedly. I know I haven’t always been the easiest person to work with. I can be volatile and ill-tempered, and too often I express my opinions harshly and without tact,” he said in a statement to the Hollywood Reporter.
“But I have never been a predator — ever. 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 the fact is, for all my flaws, I am not a predator and the idea that someone might see me in that way is more distressing than I can express.”
The network has reportedly opened an investigation into both accusations.
Last week, show writer Our Lady J called for Tambor to leave the show.
“We cannot let trans content be taken down by a single cis man,” she wrote on Instagram.
There is no official return date for the fifth season, but “Transparent” is expected to be back next year.
