The award-winning series House of Cards on Netflix is resuming filming next month, so the sixth and allegedly final season will indeed make it back into your streaming queue. That report was followed by a slew of other allegations of sexual misconduct, including from more than 20 people at the Old Vic theatre in London, where Spacey was artistic director from 2004-15.

Speaking Monday at UBS' Global Media and Communication Conference, he added the order would provide "some closure to the show for fans". It looks like the main focus will now be on Robin Wright's character in these last episodes.

Sarandos says production will not continue until next year, probably to get scripts finalised. "We will continue to work with [producer Media Rights Capital] during this hiatus time to evaluate our path forward as it relates to the show".

Spacey issued a statement claiming he did not recall the alleged incident with Rapp, but he apologized for what he said would have been "deeply inappropriate drunken behavior". The show was suspended indefinitely in October when Anthony Rapp came forward with allegations that Kevin Spacey made sexual advances towards him when he was 14 years old. It was considered likely that Spacey would be written out of the show.

First elements of response, with the announcement of a Kevin Spacey totally absent from the season. The series counts David Fincher, Wright and Dana Brunetti as executive producers. In early November, Netflix went a step further, announcing that the service would no longer work with Spacey, also deciding to shelve the release of the actor's Gore Vidal biopic, a Netflix original feature film that was already in post-production this fall. Christopher Plummer will take over Spacey's role as J. Paul Getty in the feature, due in theaters December 22.
