Following the shocking allegations made against Kevin Spacey – which alleges that he engaged in improper sexual conduct with a minor – Netflix has announced that season 6 of House of Cards will be its last.
Twelve hours after the news broke, Netflix has released a statement, saying, “Media Rights Capital and Netflix are deeply troubled by last night’s news concerning Kevin Spacey. In response to last night’s revelations, executives from both of our companies arrived in Baltimore this afternoon to meet with our cast and crew to ensure that they continue to feel safe and supported. As previously scheduled, Kevin Spacey is not working on set at this time.”
Season 6 of the show is still currently being shot – as production was temporarily halted in Baltimore due to the threat of a nearby active shooter.
It’s unknown at this time if creatives involved with the final season will attempt to lesson Spacey’s involvement as the former President of the United States.
Additionally, The Hollywood Reporter has reported that the cancellation has been in the works since the summer.
