“House of Cards” will be back in business come 2018.
Netflix announced Monday that the upcoming sixth and final season of the acclaimed drama will begin production early in the new year.
Season six will consist of eight episodes starring Robin Wright as Claire Underwood.
The future of the series has been in limbo since sexual misconduct allegations against star Kevin Spacey surfaced in late October.
The sixth and final season will consist of eight episodes starring Robin Wright as Claire Underwood.
Spacey was promptly fired from the show, and production has been on hold since Oct. 31.
“Netflix will not be involved with any further production of ‘House of Cards’ that includes Kevin Spacey,” Netflix said in a statement Nov. 3. “We will continue to work with (production company Media Rights Capital) during this hiatus time to evaluate our path forward as it relates to the show.”
Spacey was first accused of making an unwanted sexual advance toward a then-14-year-old Anthony Rapp in a BuzzFeed report.
After Rapp came forward, multiple other accusers did the same, including eight “House of Cards” employees.
Stars accused of sexual harassment and assault
The employees told CNN that Spacey created a “toxic” work environment on set by coming on to young male staffers with “nonconsensual touching and crude comments.”
Spacey, 58, is currently under investigation by British authorities.
