Netflix confirms Season 6 will carry on without Kevin Spacey

Netflix Production of the series will resume in January

Netflix are going ahead with the final season of House of Cards

Netflix's Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos told the UBS 45th Annual Global Media and Communications Conference in NY that the sixth season would be shortened to eight episodes instead of the usual 13.

The production on the sixth and final season of Netflix's House of Cards will begin next year without its lead Kevin Spacey.

Considered one of the most gifted actors of his generation, the career of the 58-year-old Spacey - whose collaboration with Netflix put the streaming giant on the map - was sent into freefall by the sex allegations that emerged at the end of October.

The "House of Cards" final season will run for eight episodes on Netflix.

Robin, 50 - who plays First Lady and Vice Presidential Claire Underwood on the hit Netflix show, and has appeared in all 52 episodes of the show - previously campaigned to be paid the same as her co-star Spacey.


"We are excited to bring closure to fans", Sarandos said.

Claire Underwood has moved center stage since "House of Cards" premiered in 2013, going from the wife of Spacey's congressman to first lady and then vice president.

However, while previous seasons of House of Cards had 13 episodes, the sixth season and final season will have only eight. Sarandos also said that he was gratified to have reached the deal for the team of 370 people, who directly work on the show, and the 2,000 people employed in Baltimore, who have jobs working on House of Cards, which shoots in Baltimore.

Last month, Netflix stopped production of House of Cards' sixth season and severed its relationship with Spacey after several people - including Star Trek: Discovery actor Anthony Rapp - accused the Oscar victor of sexual misconduct. The streaming service also sacked a film that was in the works with Spacey as well.
