House of Cards to resume shooting in 2018 without Kevin Spacey

Netflix (NFLX) Stock Price, Financials and News | Fortune 500

The final season will consist of eight episodes, instead of the typical 13 episodes that seasons one through five consisted of.

It's nearly certain that the focus of the show will now be put on Robin Wright, who plays Claire, the wife of Kevin Spacey's character, Frank Underwood.

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.

"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 NY.

Spacey, meanwhile, "is taking the time necessary to seek evaluation and treatment" his rep said last month.

After the highly publicised fall from grace of Kevin Spacey, stemming from myriad sexual assault charges and molestation claims, House of Cards has made the decision to resume production on its final season. How will they write Spacey out of the script but keep the storyline going? Producer Media Rights Capital suspended him.

First elements of response, with the announcement of a Kevin Spacey totally absent from the season. Several past and present crew members of House of Cards told CNN that Spacey created a "toxic" work environment through alleged acts of sexual harassment and assault.

House of Cards was too big of a hit to simply bail out on it, so the team has clearly had to make adjustments. In early November, Netflix went a step further, announcing that the service would no longer work with Spacey, also deciding to shelve the release of the actor's Gore Vidal biopic, a Netflix original feature film that was already in post-production this fall.
