"House Of Cards" Will Return For A Final Season-Without Kevin Spacey

A month after series former-star Kevin Spacey was sacked comes word on what House of Cards fans can expect next: the sixth and final season will premiere on Netflix in 2018. It has not yet clarified how character's exit from series will occur, although end of last season already left Claire Underwood, character played by Robin Wright, stepping forward in front of her husband.

"We are excited to bring closure to fans", Netflix CEO Ted Sarandos said at a conference Monday, according to the Guardian.

The fate of the show had been in question after Netflix cut ties with Kevin Spacey in November stating, "Netflix will not be involved with any further production of House of Cards that includes Kevin Spacey".

The show is moving forward following Netflix's decision last month to no longer work with Spacey in any capacity, including House of Cards and a planned biopic of Gore Vidal. Since then, numerous allegations against the Oscar-winning actor have surfaced.

Instead, Robin Wright will be at the helm of show.

No doubt interest will be high once House of Cards Season 6 premieres to see exactly how the show addresses Frank Underwood's absence, but I'd be surprised if they found a "graceful" way to write him out of the show. Up until this point, each season of the popular drama has run 13-episodes.

House of Cards was Netflix's first hit series when it debuted in 2013.
