His groundbreaking show about a family with a transgender parent that is imploded in 2017 when two transgender women working on the show leveled allegations of sexuality harassment against its star, Jeffrey Tambor. Tambor announced he was leaving Transparent that November; Amazon confirmed he was gone in February, show creator Jill Soloway told her side of the story in a viciously-received memoir, and the show's fifth season, which has just come to a feature-length "Musicale Finale." Here's a first look at all-talking, all-singing, all-dancing, no-Jeffrey-Tambor Transparent finale:
In an interview with Deadline, Soloway described the show's genre switch as a sort of reset button, saying "We could not just do some more episodes, I think we needed a new way to look at this world, and the musical offered us just kid of a new way to come back. "Reviving a beloved television show for a satisfying feature-length finale is a tough lift even if there has not been a sexual harassment scandal; doing it under Transparent 's circumstances while transforming the show into a musical will be seen as either a bold, brilliant on the healing power of art or act of staggering hubris, depending on whether or not the person Transparent 's finale. We'll find out on Sept. 27 how well Soloway and their cast and crew manage their way through the minefield.
