"House of Cards" to Resume Production Without Kevin Spacey in Early 2018
Dec 05, 2017, 01:11
But series fans can now rejoice, as production on the sixth season of the political drama is set to start shooting in early 2018 without the 58-year-old star.
Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos made the announcement Monday about the series, which had halted production in October after sexual assault allegations were made against lead actor Spacey.
The show had just begun production on its sixth and final season when allegations broke out about star and producer Kevin Spacey.
The shorter, eight episode season will be a marked contrast from the 13 episodes in all previous seasons.
"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. CNN also reported that eight current and former "House of Cards" employees, who were not identified, alleged sexual misconduct against Spacey. A number of options were posed-including killing off Spacey's Frank Underwood-but it marked a hard task as Spacey was the lead of the Netflix series. It was the first major original Netflix show.
"Netflix will not be involved with any further production of House of Cards that includes Kevin Spacey", Netflix said in a statement on November 3.
Production on "House of Cards" remains suspended through the end of the year.
The series ended season five with Wright's Claire Underwood as president and unwilling to pardon her husband as originally planned.
