Netflix’s content chief Ted Sarandos has announced that “House of Cards” will be returning for its sixth and final season but without its star Kevin Spacey. He stated that Robin Wright will be the season’s lead.
Recall that production for the season had been suspended indefinitely after Spacey was accused of sexual harassment by actor Anthony Rapp. Spacey had been 26, and Rapp 14, when the harassment took place.
Others also came forward with allegations of harassment at the hands of Spacey, including 8 current and former “House of Cards” employees.
Netflix had in November said they would no longer be working with Spacey, after being pressured to cancel the show.
