House of Cards to Resume Production in 2018 with Shorter Season

House of Cards to Resume Production in 2018 with Shorter Season

The final season of House of Cards will resume production in 2018 without actor Kevin Spacey.

It has also been revealed that the sixth season will be exclusively based on Robin Wright's character, Claire Underwood.

Sarandos said that they are "excited to bring closure to fans", as the raft of sexual harassment allegations against the "American Beauty" star had already put the series' future in doubt, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

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.

Google Is Clamping Down On App Data Collection
Apps can also be submitted for manual review if a developer feels their use of data collection falls within the guidelines. The apps will be considered to violate Google's policy if they don't follow the rules for prominent disclosure.

House of Cards without Spacey is just the latest workaround directors and production companies have had to come up with since allegations against the actor came out over the past few weeks.

The announcement comes after news broke that Kevin Spacey allegedly sexually assaulted actor Anthony Rapp in the '80s.

Producers had been struggling with what do about Spacey's character Frank Underwood after he was sacked from the show following the shocking report by Buzzfeed in which "Star Trek" actor Anthony Rapp accused the "House of Cards" star of making a sexual advance against him when he was 14 years old.

Wright plays Claire Underwood, who started out as a less central figure on the show than her husband. We will continue to work with MRC during this hiatus time to evaluate our path forward as it relates to the show. Each of the previous season have comprised 13 episodes.

The alleged abuse continued for several years, according to the report filed in October of last year . He was music director of the Metropolitan Opera for 40 years and now is director emeritus.

The show is moving forward following Netflix's decision last month to no longer work with Spacey in any capacity, including House of Cards and a planned biopic of Gore Vidal.

Spacey has been replaced by Christopher Plummer in the Ridley Scott biopic about oil tycoon J Paul Getty.

There is no word yet on when the final season of House of Cards will debut.
