In the wake of mounting allegations of misconduct against actor Jeffrey Tambor, the producers of “Transparent” are plotting a future for the dramedy without its Emmy-winning star.
The writers room, led by new showrunner Jill Gordon, is in the process of planning Season 5, which is set to debut next year. “There’s momentum on the inside to continue without Jeffrey Tambor,” a source tells Variety.
Trace Lysette, who has appeared as a guest star on the series, has accused the actor of making sexually charged remarks to her during their work together on the series, as well as acting inappropriately during one alleged incident that “got physical.” She called on Amazon to use the alleged incident as a “teachable moment” and “re-center the other trans characters in this show with the family members.”
