Jeffrey Tambor returning to "Arrested Development" despite sexual harassment allegations

Jeffrey Tambor will appear in the upcoming season

"Arrested Development" fans had to wait four years, 11 months and counting to find out when season 5 returns, but only had to stick it out until Cinco de Cuatro to know Jeffrey Tambor's fate in the series.

The news follows an open letter earlier this week from creator Mitch Hurwitz, who promised a chronological version of the show's fourth season, and the fifth season "very soon". 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.

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. The first three seasons of "Arrested Development" aired on Fox from 2003 to 2006.

Netflix made the decision on December 5 to continue the political drama "House of Cards" into its final season without actor Kevin Spacey, putting Robin Wright in the leading role instead.

The three men were believed to have been transferred to a Pyongyang hotel in anticipation of their release. They have been held in a North Korean labor camp.

Allegations against Tambor were brought forth in November by actresses Van Barnes and Trace Lysette, who accused him of making "many" unwanted "sexual advances and remarks" toward them that at times "got physical".

"I am even more disappointed in Jill Soloway's unfair characterisation of me as someone who would ever cause harm to any of my fellow cast mates. So, we'll see", she said. "I felt his penis on my hip through his thin pajamas". Amazon, however, launched an investigation into the claims, which ended in Tambor being removed from the series in February. "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".

A Netflix spokesperson has now confirmed to the Associated Press that Tambor will appear in the upcoming fifth season of Arrested Development, although the extent of Tambor's role is not known.
