Robin Wright will take the spotlight in the new chapter, which is set to be the show's last. The announcement was made following a number of allegations levelled against the actor.

House of Cards season 6 is still going to happen on Netflix; however, it's not going to be anywhere near as substantial as it was first planned.

Filming is scheduled to resume early 2018.

Variety reported last month that producers were contemplating killing off Spacey's character, the devious political animal Frank Underwood, to focus on Wright's Claire Underwood as a way to salvage season six. "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".

Production of the series was suspended after star Kevin Spacey was removed because of accusations of sexual harassment and other improper behavior.




The plot of the final, shortened season will "be refocused to center on co-star" Wright, The Guardian reports.

The Chief Content Officer for the movie streaming service said that the eight-episode arc will "bring closure" for fans of the shrewd political series.

Spacey was "taking the time necessary to seek evaluation and treatment" after allegations surfaced, according to a representative.

The actor was also replaced by Christopher Plummer in Ridley Scott's drama All the Money in the World, leading to last-minute reshoots before the film's release on 22 December.

Spacey also has been fired from a film about Gore Vidal in which he was to play the title character, and he was replaced by Christopher Plummer in the soon-to-release "All the Money in the World", forcing last-minute reshoots before the film's debut December 22.
