Netflix ends House of Cards amid Kevin Spacey allegations

House Of Cards spin-offs could be in the works in the wake of its cancellation

A tipline for complaints against Kevin Spacey has been set up by the famed London theater where he served as artistic director for more than a decade.

The streaming channel, which is reportedly weighing different concepts for the spin-off, said yesterday the upcoming sixth season will be the last for House of Cards.

As BWW previously reported, Netflix has cancelled all future seasons of their political drama HOUSE OF CARDS amid reports that series star Kevin Spacey made sexual advances at Star Trek: Discovery actor and RENT star Anthony Rapp when Rapp was just 14 years old.

Netflix has, however, said it is not the reason for the show coming to an end. "But if I did behave then 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 said in a statement early Monday.

In a statement on its website, The International Academy of Television Arts and Sciences said: "The International Academy has announced today that in light of recent events it will not honour Kevin Spacey with the 2017 International Emmy Founders Award".

Anthony Rapp said in an interview that Spacey attempted to sexually assault him in 1986 - an incident Spacey says he does not remember. "I've escaped from Kevin Spacey's basement!"

Soon, Twitter was flooded with memes from people who were equally dumbfounded and angered by Spacey's approach to the allegations.

More details to come. "I have loved and had romantic encounters with men throughout my life, and I choose now to live as a gay man".

Spacey denied the accusation in a tweet, saying he is "beyond horrified" by allegations that he made sexual advances on a teen boy.

Although House of Cards will come to an end after season 6, the universe could continue on.

He went on to state: 'That said, I take reports of such behavior seriously and this is no exception.
