Production on the sixth season of House of Cards came to a halt October 31 following bombshell sexual misconduct allegations against Spacey, who starred in the series for five seasons as politician Frank Underwood and also served as an executive producer.

"[The last season] will bring closure of the show for fans", said Netflix president Ted Sarandos, at a UBS conference, according to Deadline. Robin Wright will continue to star, but as previously announced Spacey will not be part of the last season.

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. Spacey's removal from the show doesn't come as a surprise, since allegations against the actor caused the production for the sixth season to be put on halt. The streaming platform first said it would end after the sixth season, a 13-episode arc set for release in 2018.

Of those series, Netflix will continue The Crown, which Sarandos said is the business' "most efficient shows" for obtaining and keeping subscribers. Since then, numerous allegations against the Oscar-winning actor have surfaced.

Sarandos did not say when season six would air or how Spacey's character would be treated in the show. "It will star Robin Wright".

After a number of allegations were reported against Spacey, Netflix announced it would not move forward with him in any capacity. Celebrities were infuriated by his out-of-place response, as was Netflix, who fired him and suspended production for House Of Cards as soon as they heard of his allegedly sick acts.

The sixth season of the United States political drama, which starred the 58-year-old as a fictional president, was originally expected to air in mid-2018.

Spacey has said that he owed Rapp "the sincerest apology for what would have been deeply inappropriate drunken behavior".
