Netflix Confirms House of Cards Final Season Will Not Include Kevin Spacey

Netflix Confirms House of Cards Final Season Will Not Include Kevin Spacey

Netflix Chief Content Office Ted Sarandos told a conference Monday of the decision, Variety reported. "We are excited to bring closure to fans", he was quoted as saying. It had also said that the show will end after the upcoming sixth season.

Sarandos did not clarify how the show will deal with the focal character of Frank Underwood, who was played by Spacey for the last five years.

The actor claimed he was 14 when Spacey allegedly harassed him by climbing on top of him on a bed following a party in 1986.

The final season of "House of Cards" will kick back into production in early 2018 without Kevin Spacey...




House of Cards was among Netflix's first original series to become a breakout hit, earning a large following of fans along with critical acclaim after the first season of the David Fincher-produced political thriller debuted in 2013.

This foreshadowing, coupled with the swift action of producers following Spacey's avalanche of allegations, suggests that the show was already preparing for life after Frank Underwood.

Production on "House of Cards" was shut down last month amidst allegations against Spacey, who was later fired from the series after Netflix refused to participate in any project with him involved. "But if I did behave as he describes, I owe him the sincerest apology for what would have been deeply inappropriate drunken behavior, and I am sorry for the feelings he describes having carried with him all these years".

Spacey was "taking the time necessary to seek evaluation and treatment" after allegations surfaced, according to a representative.
