Netflix boss assures House of Cards fans the show will go on

"[The last season] will bring closure of the show for fans", said Netflix president Ted Sarandos, at a UBS conference, according to Deadline.

Netflix has now confirmed it will begin production of the final season and that Robin Wright will star in the eight episode arc.

While there was footage that Spacey filmed before the allegations first surfaced by actor Anthony Rapp, it appears as though Netflix and the studio (Media Rights Capital) are wiping the slate clean and starting anew. Initially it was expected that production would start again after Thanksgiving, but scriptwriters continue to work on new scripts, of which now has to disappear character of Frank Underwood, co-star of history.

The production of season 6 was suspended in October, following sexual assault allegations against the star. The announcement was made following a number of allegations levelled against the actor.

Wright plays Claire Underwood, who started out as a less central figure on the show than her husband.

The coalition has been fighting to defeat the Iran-backed Houthis along with Mr Saleh's forces in Yemen since March 2015. Pointing to global law, Lowcock said, "Wars have rules, and they need to be complied with".

The Oscar victor was subsequently fired from the show, sparking rumours suggesting that would mark the end for House of Cards. The character has always been despicable, and now that Spacey's alleged actions have come to light, one imagines there's not a strong desire to give Frank Underwood an emotional farewell. It is not known when the eight-episode series will air.

A representative for Spacey did not respond to a request for comment.

Meanwhile, Spacey has also been edited out of completed Ridley Scott film All the Money in the World.

Netflix had also worked with Spacey on a movie in which the actor stars as the late writer Gore Vidal.

Last week MRC producers had informed "House of Cards" cast and crew that the hiatus on season 6 would be extended through December 8 and that the crew will continue to be paid during the break.
