In the wake of Kevin Spacey’s firing, Netflix has announced that production of House of Cards will resume in 2018, with Robin Wright as lead for the epic political drama’s final season. Wright has starred alongside Spacey as Claire Underwood since the series debuted.
“[Season six] will bring closure of the show for fans,” Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos says. Production is currently on hiatus and producers are working to evaluate how best to move forward.
Spacey remains in rehab after several accusers came forward with stories of sexual harassment, assault and a toxic work environment.
