  • Political drama series “House of cards” ends as lead actor Spacey, battles sexual harassment allegation

Netflix announced yesterday (Oct. 30) that House of Cards will conclude after the upcoming sixth season, which is now in production in Baltimore.

The popular series had earned Netflix credibility for its original productions. However, while Netflix has said that this will be the last due to the allegations made against the actor, several reports have suggested that the producers had chose to end the series well before the allegation emerged.

Rapp has alleged that, in 1986, Spacey made sexual advances towards him when he was only 14-years-old. He wrote in a statement that he does "not remember the encounter", but apologized to Rapp "for what would have been deeply inappropriate drunken behavior". "I don't know if I would have used that language. I want to deal with this honestly and openly and that starts with examining my own behavior". Rapp was 14 at the time while Spacey was 26. In response to the allegations, Willimon said Rapp's story is "deeply troubling". Others criticized Spacey's implication that it was his choice to be gay.

The suspension was "until further notice, to give us time to review the current situation and to address any concerns of our cast and crew", said producer Media Rights Capital and the streaming giant in a joint statement.

The special award, which is reserved for those "whose creative accomplishments have contributed in some way to the quality of global television production", was due to be presented to Spacey in a ceremony on November 20 in New York City. "As previously scheduled, Kevin Spacey is not working on set at this time", the statement read.

The show was likely going to continue for a few more seasons, but showrunners will now promptly wrap up Frank and Claire Underwood's stories.

In addition to luring the Oscar-winning Spacey to TV, the show also nabbed director David Fincher (of "Fight Club" and "The Social Network"), who won an Emmy for directing the pilot.
