'House of Cards' to resume taping minus star Kevin Spacey

On Monday morning, Netflix content chief Ted Sarandos announced that the series will return for an eight-episode sixth season in 2018, with the season to star Robin Wright, who plays Claire Underwood, The Hollywood Reporter shares.

"We are excited about being able to bring some closure for the fans", Sarandos said. Robin Wright will continue to star, but as previously announced Spacey will not be part of the last season.

The fate of Netflix hit House Of Cards became uncertain after sexual abuse allegation against lead actor Kevin Spacey caused producers to put shooting of the show on an indefinite hiatus. Since then, numerous allegations against the Oscar-winning actor have surfaced.

Host Kevin Spacey speaks onstage during the 2017 Tony Awards at Radio City Music Hall on June 11, 2017 in New York City.

However, Sarandos did not say how Spacey's absence will be explained in the new season.

In the appeal, lawyers for Turner argue their client was denied due process during his trial and called it "fundamentally unfair". The case received worldwide attention after Turner's victim delivered a heartbreaking 12-page statement detailing her experience.

Killing off Spacey's character would actually follow the original United Kingdom version of House of Cards, since the Frank Underwood of that series (named Francis Urquhart) was assassinated in the final chapter of the trilogy, The Final Cut.

After the story broke MRC Studios, the company who oversees the show, promptly suspended Spacey. Each of the previous season have comprised 13 episodes.

After Rapp's confession, 46, various other men came forward to accuse Spacey of sexual harassment and misconduct.
