'House of Cards' to finish final season without Kevin Spacey

House of Cards to resume production for final season without Kevin Spacey

Frank Underwood, was on his way out over the course of the last season, it will be interesting to see how the show writes him out without him being involved in the show at all. It was considered likely that Spacey would be written out of the show.

"We are excited to bring closure to fans", Netflix's Ted Sarandos said, confirming that the show will return for an eight-episode season starring Spacey's co-star Robin Wright.

On Nov. 26, Media Rights Capital announced that it had extended its production hiatus for another two weeks until December 8. Others blamed him for "cast and crew who now need to find new jobs to feed their families and pay their bills". The Oscar-winning actor has been mired in scandal since late October, when he was accused by actor Anthony Rapp of inappropriate behavior committed when Spacey was in his twenties and Rapp was a teenager. Variety also reports that the final sixth season will be 8 episodes instead of the usual 13 and will, of course, star Robin Wright as Claire Underwood.

Production was suspended in October, following sexual assault allegations against the actor, who plays Frank Underwood. Production on the first two episodes had already been completed and a table read for episode three was on the schedule. As the company's first hit series, "House of Cards" helped propel Netflix from a straight-forward streaming-video library into a top Hollywood player.

Season six will be a bit briefer than its predecessors. A number of options were posed-including killing off Spacey's Frank Underwood-but it marked a hard task as Spacey was the lead of the Netflix series. Spacey was also removed from CBS' Carol Burnett 50th Anniversary Special.
