Netflix are going ahead with the final season of House of Cards


After much speculation regarding the future of the original Netflix series, House of Cards, it has been announced that the sixth season will began filming without the leading star, Kevin Spacey.

However, The Hollywood Reporter said Netflix content chief Ted Sarandos announced during a conference on Monday that production would resume next year.

The final season of the political drama will star Robin Wright and will run a total of eight episodes, Sarandos confirmed.

While there was footage that Spacey filmed before the allegations first surfaced by actor Anthony Rapp, it appears as though Netflix and the studio (Media Rights Capital) are wiping the slate clean and starting anew.

Netflix has reached an agreement to make a sixth and final season of its hit House of Cards.


The hiatus was then extended by two weeks, through December 8, with Pauline Micelli, SVP of television business and legal affairs for HoC producer, MRC, saying in a letter to the cast and crew that the hope if for a Season 6 to be produced. There have been numerous discussions about how the show would finish or even if it would finish, after the departure of the Oscar-winning lead, Kevin Spacey, from the show.

Cast member Robin Wright poses at the premiere for the second season of the television series "House of Cards" at the Directors Guild of America in Los Angeles, California in this February 13, 2014 file picture.

In November, Netflix said it wouldn't be involved with the series if Spacey remained.

House of Cards season 6 is still going to happen on Netflix; however, it's not going to be anywhere near as substantial as it was first planned.

Spacey has said that he owed Rapp "the sincerest apology for what would have been deeply inappropriate drunken behavior".
