House of Cards to resume production in 2018 without Kevin Spacey

House Of Cards Season 6 Production Will Resume In 2018 With Robin Wright As The Star We Deserve David Giesbrecht  Netflix  Bustle

The fate of Netflix hit House Of Cards became uncertain after sexual abuse allegation against lead actor Kevin Spacey caused producers to put shooting of the show on an indefinite hiatus. Many fans suggested moving forward with Robin Wright and that seems to be exactly the direction Netflix has made a decision to take.

"We are excited to bring closure to fans", Ted Sarandos, Chief Content Officer for Netflix said this morning.

Netflix went on to fire Spacey last month, but has since confirmed that House of Cards will get a proper end with a final season arriving some time next year.

Spacey has been accused of sexual assault and harassment by multiple men, including an actor who says he was 14 when Spacey made a sexual advance, and an unnamed man who says he was 15 when Spacey attempted to rape him. However, with the production bump, it looks like viewers can expect the show to resume in late 2018 at the earliest. Since then, numerous allegations against the Oscar-winning actor have surfaced.

Kevin Space and Robin Wright in "House of Cards". The character has always been despicable, and now that Spacey's alleged actions have come to light, one imagines there's not a strong desire to give Frank Underwood an emotional farewell.

The military would not say where the shooter was, saying only that the incident was being investigated. They were later rescued by Israeli security forces.

Sarandos spoke about "House of Cards" at USB's Global Media and Communications Conference in NY.

Spacey's name has also been removed from the film's official poster.

The shorter, eight episode season will be a marked contrast from the 13 episodes in all previous seasons.

A representative for Spacey did not respond to a request for comment.

Spacey has been replaced by Christopher Plummer in the Ridley Scott biopic about oil tycoon J Paul Getty.
