Netflix Confirms House of Cards Final Season Will Not Include Kevin Spacey

Content chief at Netflix, Ted Sarandos, said that Robin Wright, who plays Claire Underwood, will be elevated to the central role in the series.

Netflix had fired Kevin Spacey and cut all ties with him after numerous allegations of sexual misconduct had surfaced against him spanning decades, including those by the crew of House of Cards.

The final season will have eight episodes and will be refocused on the character of actor Robin Wright.

Taping of the political drama was halted in October amid sexual misconduct allegations against star Kevin Spacey.

"We are excited to bring closure to fans", he was quoted as saying at a conference. It will be an eight-episode season.

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.

But writing Spacey out of House of Cards shouldn't be hard as in the books by Michael Dobbs - which inspired the series - Frank dies.

At least two other ideas are reportedly being explored, and reportedly all potential spin-offs take place in the same universe as House of Cards.

The programme is massively popular on Netflix, and was one of the streaming service's first "originals" - it seems doubtful that producers will allow such a lucrative show to simply fade away.

The Old Vic has said that an internal investigation found 20 people claimed they had been the victims of inappropriate behaviour by Spacey.

All of Spacey's scenes were also erased from the upcoming film All the Money in the World, in light of the allegations made against the actor.
