Jeffrey Tambor to Appear in 'Arrested Development' Season 5

Jeffrey Tambor to Appear in 'Arrested Development' Season 5

Despite sexual harassment claims made against the actor, Jeffrey Tambor will reprise his role as George Bluth Sr in the next season of Netflix's "Arrested Development". While no official date has yet been revealed for season five, Netflix recently announced a "remixed" version of season 4 would stream on May 4. Production on the new episodes came to an end in November of a year ago, but it's only this week that Tambor's involvement has been brought up by a Netflix spokesperson. An internal investigation led to Tambor stepping down, and later being dismissed, from his role in the Amazon series.

Netflix and 20th Century Fox TV had previously been mum about Tambor's involvement in Season 5, but Variety first reported confirmation from a Netflix spokesperson that the actor would indeed be back. It's worth noting that he has denied the allegations on a number of occasions, saying he has "never been a predator - ever", in a statement released previous year. Tambor officially left that series in February ahead of its fifth season, following multiple misconduct allegations against him by his former personal assistant, Van Barnes, as well as guest star Trace Lysette. It's also worth noting this caused a much bigger problem for Netflix since House of Cards has been one of Netflix's signature shows and Spacey's ousting naturally caused a major possibly shark jumping level upheaval for the show moving forward.

"I am profoundly disappointed in Amazon's handling of these false accusations against me", Tambor said in a statement. "So, we'll see", she said. "I have never been a predator-ever", he said. "I felt his penis on my hip through his thin pajamas". "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 denied the claims, calling her "disgruntled".

News of Tambor's continued presence on "Arrested" comes the day that Netflix releases a new chronological edit of Season 4 by creator Mitch Hurwitz.
