It will come as a surprise to many that Tambor intends to continue playing the transgender character, Maura Pfefferman, after he told the world last month he could not see himself returning to set amid sexual harassment allegations.
Tambor's exit from the show had been rumored since the first sexual harassment claim was made against him from former assistant and actress Van Barnes. 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".
The New York Times reported Wednesday that Tambor's unresolved status has left in limbo plans for the show's upcoming fifth season.
Creator and EP Jill Soloway said she would not discuss the recent accusations against Tambor while speaking on a panel at Vulture Fest L.A. After that, guest star Trace Lysette said that Tambor had behaved inappropriately around her.
Writers are now at work on a fifth season of "Transparent", though it continues to remain unclear if Tambor would continue to star in it.

NBC News pointed out that while speaking about sexual assault Conyers III told reporters: "women are to be believed". House amid sexual harassment allegations unlocks the seat he's held for more than a half-century.
"My back was against the wall in a corner as Jeffrey approached me", Ms. Lysette said in her statement on Thursday. He initially referred to Ms. Barnes as "a former disgruntled assistant of mine" and told Deadline that he was "appalled and distressed by this baseless allegation".
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.
A third woman, makeup artist Tamara Delbridge, came forward at the end of November and said Tambor kissed her without consent on the set of the movie Never Again in 2001. "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". "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".
