LOS ANGELES >> Amazon Studios says “Transparent” star Jeffrey Tambor won’t be on the series when it returns for its fifth season.

The decision confirmed Thursday by an Amazon spokeswoman followed the reported conclusion of an internal investigation into sexual misconduct allegations.

A representative for Tambor didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.

The claims against the Emmy-winning actor were made late last year by Tambor’s former assistant and an actress on “Transparent,” which is about a transgender woman and her family.

Tambor denied the accusations at that time but said that in light of them he didn’t see how he could return to the show.

In a statement Thursday, series creator Jill Soloway said action is being taken to ensure the series’ workplace “respects the safety and dignity of every individual.”
