"House of Cards" Will Continue-Just Without Kevin Spacey

Posted December 05, 2017

The eight-episode season - which will be the last of the series - will begin production in early 2018, Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos said at a NY conference, according to Variety and The Wrap.

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. Robin Wright will take the spotlight in the new chapter, which is set to be the show's last.

Netflix put the award-winning political thriller series on hold in response to the slew of allegations against Spacey, a two-time Oscar victor accused of attempting to rape a teenage boy and of a pattern of harassment towards younger, male colleagues - including on the set of House of Cards. The season will contain eight episodes and bring a "good, creative conclusion" to the series, Sarandos said. The announcement was made following a number of allegations levelled against the actor.

"The returning-series phenomenon is really exciting", Sarandos said, adding, "Last year, there was zero anticipation of "Stranger Things" before the show from the Duffer Brothers became a huge franchise. "We will continue to work with MRC during this hiatus time to evaluate out path forward as it relates to the show", Netflix said in a statement in early November. There is no word yet on when the final season of House of Cards will debut.

House of Cards without Spacey is just the latest workaround directors and production companies have had to come up with since allegations against the actor came out over the past few weeks.
