  • 'Arrested Development' Season 4 Gets a Remixed Rerelease

The 73-year-old actor, known as George Bluth Sr.to many, will return for the upcoming fifth season of Arrested Development, according to Variety, despite the ongoing harassment allegations against him.

The Emmy-winning Transparent star was sacked in February following a three-month investigation into allegations that he had sexually harassed a Transparent guest star and a former assistant, leading to questions about his role in the upcoming season of Arrested Development. Controversy may of course surround Tambor's involvement, due to a pair of sexual harassment allegations levelled at him by a "Transparent" guest star, and a former assistant.

Tambor formally left Transparent in February.

Some members of the Arrested Development cast have previously made public their support of Tambor despite the allegations. "But I have never been a predator - ever", he said in a statement at the time.

Creator Jill Solway said: "I have great respect and admiration for Van Barnes and Trace Lysette, whose courage in speaking out about their experience on Transparent is an example of the leadership this moment in our culture requires". Therefore, I can only surmise that the investigation against me was deeply flawed and biased toward the toxic politicized atmosphere that afflicted our set. Meanwhile, Netflix has released season 4 in the proper chronological format instead of individual episodes focusing on specific characters.

"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.

During that time, fellow Arrested Development actor David Cross said the cast "stand behind" Tambor.

As for when the fifth season will drop, "soon" was as close as the announcement would take us, but there are suspicions that it could be at the end of this month. Arrested Development will return to Netflix ... Jason Bateman, Will Arnett, Portia de Rossi, Tony Hale, Jessica Walter, Michael Cera, and Alia Shawkat also star on "Arrested Development" with Cross and Tambor.
