Amazon’s ‘Transparent’ hasn’t cut ties with Jeffrey Tambor yet

Last month, following accusations of sexual assault, Transparent actor Jeffrey Tambor released a statement that made it seem like he would be leaving the show. "Given the politicized atmosphere that seems to have afflicted our set, I don't see how I can return to Transparent," Tambor said. And while he has stated that he regrets if anything he did in the past was misinterpreted as aggressive, he has denied any purposeful wrongdoing. "The idea that I would deliberately harass anyone is simply and utterly untrue," Tambor said in a statement. However, the New York Times reports today that Tambor's departure is far from certain and the show is currently operating under a very unclear future.

Allan Mayer, Tambor's publicist, told the NYT, "What he said was that given the toxic atmosphere and the politicization on the set, it's very hard for him to see how he can possibly return. But no final decision for next year has been made, either by Jeffrey or by Amazon." And the show's creator, Jill Soloway, said that they take the accusations against Tambor very seriously, but because of Amazon's ongoing investigation into the matter, they couldn't discuss it further.Those pointing to sex...
