House of Cards to return for last season without Spacey

House of Cards to return for last season without Spacey House of Cards to return for last season without Spacey

Netflix Inc severed ties in November with Spacey, one of its biggest stars who played fictional US president Frank Underwood in "House of Cards", after accusations of sexual misconduct against the Oscar-winning actor.

"It will be an eight-episode season".

Taping of the political drama was halted in October amid sexual misconduct allegations against star Kevin Spacey.

House of Cards is officially returning for its final season without disgraced star Kevin Spacey.

Kevin Spacey has been accused by "Star Trek: Discovery" actor Anthony Rapp of making an unwanted sexual advance towards him when he was 14-years-old.

Now "House of Cards" will move ahead for the final season but there could still be more as a couple of spinoffs are currently in the works that may eventually get picked up at Netflix in the future.

It comes after director Sir Ridley Scott made the decision to recast Spacey in his movie "All the Money in the World" and replace him with Christopher Plummer, who was tasked with re-shooting all the scenes.

Work on an eight-episode sixth season, the show's last, starring Robin Wright but without Spacey's character Frank Underwood, is set to begin early in the year.

"We are excited to bring closure to fans", Sarandos said.

Netflix had in November said they would no longer be working with Spacey, after being pressured to cancel the show.

According to reports, the series will now be centered on Robin Wright's Claire Underwood, the wife of Spacey's character.

The programme is massively popular on Netflix, and was one of the streaming service's first "originals" - it seems doubtful that producers will allow such a lucrative show to simply fade away.
