After star Kevin Spacey was accused of propositioning an underage Anthony Rapp in 1986, Netflix announced that the upcoming sixth season of House of Cards would be its last.

Netflix ended its relationship with Spacey after several members of the "House of Cards" production staff came forward in a CNN report with more allegations of sexual harassment and one allegation of sexual assault.

House of Cards will be returning for its final season without star Kevin Spacey.

"We're really excited about bringing some closure to the show for fans", chief content officer of Netflix Ted Sarandos said via Variety.

Scotland Yard is investigating Spacey, who was artistic director at London's Old Vic theatre between 2004 and 2015, over two allegations of sexual assault. It looks like the main focus will now be on Robin Wright's character in these last episodes. How will they write Spacey out of the script but keep the storyline going?


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.

First elements of response, with the announcement of a Kevin Spacey totally absent from the season.

On Nov. 26, Media Rights Capital announced that it had extended its production hiatus for another two weeks until December 8.

Sarandos also announced on Monday that Netflix will expand the number of animated feature films it creates, potentially releasing four or five per year.

Now, the political drama series is expected to resume production sometime in early 2018, with Spacey's character being written out completely.
