The popular Netflix drama "House of Cards" will continue production on its sixth season without Kevin Spacey, amid allegations of sexual misconduct by the actor, according to media reports.

"We were really excited we could get to an agreement" to provide "closure of the show for fans", said Sarandos, speaking Monday at UBS's Global Media and Communications Conference in NY.

Sarandos also reportedly added that Season 6 will contain eight episodes.

Content chief at Netflix, Ted Sarandos, said that Robin Wright, who plays Claire Underwood, will be elevated to the central role in the series.


"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".

Netflix has reached an agreement to make a sixth and final season of its hit House of Cards.

Production will resume in early 2018, the source said. Since then, numerous allegations against the Oscar-winning actor have surfaced. Spacey was officially suspended from the show early last month. Season six was already set to be House of Cards' last before the allegations broke.

House Of Cards is hoping to move on without the shadow cast by the sexual assault scandals surrounding lead Kevin Spacey.


Wright's character, Claire Underwood, finished season five by winning election as the first USA female president after wresting power from her husband.

Netflix is also jumping into the children's entertainment space as it will create 60 original kids series in-house next year, as well as its first animated movies.

It is not known when the final season will air nor what the current status of any spin-off might be.

Spacey has said that he owed Rapp "the sincerest apology for what would have been deeply inappropriate drunken behavior".
