“Transparent” fans will have to wait a few more months for season five.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, production on “Transparent” is scheduled to start in December meaning a 2018 air date won’t be happening for the Amazon series.

Jeffrey Tambor’s firing from the show due to sexual harassment claims from a “Transparent” co-star and a former assistant has left the show’s next move unclear.

Series creator Jill Soloway and the writing team are now tasked to rewrite the show to accommodate Tambor’s exit. It’s unknown whether Tambor’s character Maura Pfefferman will be recast or written out of the show.

Series five will also welcome Jill Gordon as the new showrunner taking the place of Soloway who will remain on board as executive producer, director and writer.
