"It will start production in early 2018 and it will not involve Kevin Spacey", Netflix's chief content officer Ted Sarandos told a media conference.

The final season, which will have eight episodes, was planned before the bombshell allegations against Spacey.

Variety reported last month that House of Cards producers were contemplating killing off Spacey's character - the devious political animal Frank Underwood - to focus on Wright's Claire Underwood as a way to salvage season 6.

It's also been rumored that Netflix is seeking to launch a House of Cards spin-off, eager to extend the franchise of their flagship show.

Production is resuming next year on the sixth and final season of "House of Cards".

He added that the agreement would benefit the 2,000 people in Baltimore who have worked on the show.

The fact that, OnePlus 3, OnePlus 3T and OnePlus 5 all looked very similar, OnePlus 5T stands out due to its bezel-less display . But it seems like OnePlus has continued its record-breaking streak as the OnePlus 5T has outsold OnePlus 5 on the launch day.


After the story broke MRC Studios, the company who oversees the show, promptly suspended Spacey.

Among accusations that have been directed against Spacey in recent weeks were those of several House of Cards workers, who accused him of creating a "toxic" working environment and behaving like a "sexual predator".

Wright's character, Claire Underwood, finished season five by winning election as the first US female president after wresting power from her husband.

That left "House of Cards" writers with a problem: They has to rewrite a show that already had been finalized and completed production on two episodes.

The plot of the final, shortened season will "be refocused to center on co-star" Wright, The Guardian reports. According to Deadline, the Netflix series is set to pick up production once again in 2018, without its troubled star at the forefront.

He said he didn't recall it, but allegations by other men followed.
