at . Comments

Ever since it was announced that Jeffrey Tambor was fired from Transparent, fans of the actor have questioned whether the actor will return to another hit show he stars in. 

That show is Arrested Development, and according to Variety, the actor will indeed return for Season 5 of the comedy series. 

The future of Transparent was put in jeopardy when multiple misconduct claims against Tambor came to the forefront.

He added: “What has become clear over the past weeks, however, is that this is no longer the job I signed up for four years ago."

"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.”
