Following the allegations of sexual misconduct - and subsequent dismissal of star Kevin Spacey from his role as Frank Underwood - Netflix today has confirmed that an abbreviated sixth and final season of House of Cards will still happen despite the controversy.
A work disruption first occurred near Halloween, but producers had still hoped to resume production after Thanksgiving. Now, it seems anything that may have been filmed prior to the Spacey allegations will be scrapped for new filming for eight episodes in 2018 (down from a standard 13 episodes) which will "bring closure of the show for fans" and find Robin Wright's Claire Underwood as the lead (something we had hoped for).
The news joins renewal announcements for other Netflix originals like a third season of Stranger Things and a second season of Mindhunter.
Although little is known as to how show producers will handle Spacey's absence from the narrative, we're supremely confident that Robin Wright's Claire Underwood has enough treachery left to make the final eight episodes supremely memorable.
