Netflix’s House Of Cards is set to end after the upcoming sixth season. The decision follows sexual advance allegations against leading star Kevin Spacey.
Production has begun on the sixth season of the political drama. It has now been revealed to be the final ever season of the show, according to Variety.
The final 13 episodes of the show are set to premiere in 2018, with Netflix claiming they planned the show’s end many months ago.
In a statement, Netflix said: ‘Media Rights Capital and Netflix are deeply troubled by last night’s news concerning Kevin Spacey.
‘In response to last night’s revelations, executives from both of our companies arrived in Baltimore this afternoon to meet with our cast and crew to ensure that they continue to feel safe and supported.
As previously scheduled, Kevin Spacey is not working on set at this time.’
It follows allegations being made against Kevin Spacey by Star Trek star Anthony Rapp.
Rapp claims the actor made sexual advances towards him when he was aged 14. The creator of House Of Cards, Beau Willimon, recently spoke out about the allegations in a statement.
He said: ‘Anthony Rapp’s story is deeply troubling.
‘During the time I worked with Kevin Spacey on House Of Cards, I neither witnessed nor was aware of any inappropriate behaviour on set or off.
‘That said, I take reports of such behaviour seriously and this is no exception, I feel for Mr. Rapp and I support his courage.’
In addition to Spacey, Robin Wright, Michael Kelly, Mahershala Ali and Joel Kinnaman also star in the show.
