Jeffrey Tambor Will Be A Part Of 'Arrested Development' Season 5

Former Transparent star Jeffrey Tambor will not be ejected from the upcoming season of Netflix show Arrested Development, despite sexual harassment claims.

The Emmy-winning actor's role in the sitcom that's garnered a cultlike following since its 2003 Fox debut came under question late a year ago following accusations of sexual misconduct on the set of Amazon's "Transparent".

The confirmation comes several months after the actor was sacked from his Amazon show "Transparent" following an investigation into allegations of sexual misconduct. The actor has since denied both Lysette and Barnes's allegations, although Amazon still removed him from Transparent. The first three seasons of "Arrested Development" aired on Fox from 2003 to 2006. Tambor had said, "I am profoundly disappointed in Amazon's handling of these false accusations against me". "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".

Netflix made the decision on December 5 to continue the political drama "House of Cards" into its final season without actor Kevin Spacey, putting Robin Wright in the leading role instead. She is a father that comes out to her wife and children about being transgender. "It's not about sharing my personal opinion of him", she said. "In our four-year history of working together on this incredible show, these accusations have NEVER been revealed or discussed directly with me or anyone at Amazon". "I felt his penis on my hip through his thin pajamas".

"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", Tambor responded when the allegations were reported.

Speaking on Friday, a Netflix spokesperson told website Vulture that Tambor will feature in Arrested Development when it returns.

Alia Shawkat however was more reserved in her praise, and said it was "sad" to hear about the situation, referring to Tambor's accusers as "victims" who need "to be heard just as much".
