    Actor Jeffrey Tambor attends The Paley Center For Media Presents: Transparent: An Evening With The Pfeffermans at The Paley Center for Media on Sept. 13, 2017 in New York City. Tambor recently said he was difficult to work with on the show, but denies his allegations of sexual misconduct.

    There will be a death in the family when Jeffrey Tambor's character is killed off in the musical finale of the web TV series "Transparent."

    Tambor played the lead, Maura, a late-in-life transgender parent, until he was fired last year following allegations of sexual misconduct. Tambor has denied the allegations.

    The finale will begin with Maura's death, and the episode will focus on how her family deals with it.

    Amazon and "Transparent" series creator Jill Soloway told the Los Angeles Times on Thursday that the series needed a different way of looking at the family and that "we did it through song."

    The series stars Judith Light, Amy Landecker, Jay Duplass and Gaby Hoffmann.

    "Transparent" debuted in 2014. A date for the finale has not yet been released.
