House of Cards: Season 6 Will Not Include Kevin Spacey

Claire takes the stage.

Netflix will resume production of House of Cards’ sixth season early next year, and the final season of the popular show will not include Kevin Spacey.

As reported by Variety, Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos announced an agreement has been made to move forward with production in early 2018. “We were really excited we could get to an agreement… for the conclusion of the show,” Sarandos said at UBS’s Global Media and Communications Conference in New York.

In the wake of allegations against Spacey earlier this year, production on Season 6 was suspended, with Netflix saying it would “review the current situation” with its partners at Media Rights Capital (MRC), as well as the rest of the cast and crew of the show.

Season 6, which Netflix has confirmed will be the series’ last season, will contain eight episodes, with Robin Wright’s Claire Underwood prominently featured.
