Amazon Studios is “excited” about a fifth season of Transparent (sans Jeffrey Tambor) and hopes to “give fans the closure they long for and do what is right for those fans.”
“[Creator] Jill Soloway came in with something she’s excited about that [goes] beyond Transparent,” teased Salke at the annual Television Critics Association tour at the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills on Saturday. “So stay tuned in the next week or two for something we are incredibly excited about. It’s all good. We will give Transparent fans the closure they long for and do what is right for those fans.”

In February, Amazon officially fired Transparent star Jeffrey Tambor three months after opening an investigation into sexual harassment claims against him. Tambor, who won two Emmys and a Golden Globe for his performance as a transgender woman who comes out late in life, had been accused of harassment by Transparent guest star Trace Lysette as well as a former assistant.
The future of the show had seemed in doubt after the allegations but star Judith Light and producer-distributor Amazon confirmed that season 5 of Transparent would be in the works.
