Will Netflix Resume ‘House of Cards’ Without Kevin Spacey?

The uncertain fate of Netflix’s House of Cards is now a certain one: Production on the sixth season, which was put on ice at the end of October following a slew of sexual assault allegations against Kevin Spacey, will resume after the holidays.

It will be the show’s final season and consist of eight episodes, all absent Spacey, reports Variety. The Hollywood Reporter notes the season was originally supposed to clock in at 13 episodes and that production had been finished on episodes one and two when things were halted.

Chief content officer Ted Sarandos announced the news Monday and explained how glad he was an agreement could be reached for the sake of the 370 people who work directly on the show and “the 2,000 people in Baltimore,” where it’s shot, who have some kind of employment because of it.

The Hollywood Reporter’s take: “Writing Spacey out of House of Cards isn’t a stretch. In the Michael Dobbs book that inspired the Netflix series, Frank’s character dies.” No word on plot yet, but the episodes will revolve around Robin Wright.

Too bad it’s not that easy to write Donald Trump out of the Oval Office.

    This show won’t be the same without Spacey. Cool of Netflix to think of all the folk who rely on the show for employment though.
