House of Cards to return in 2018 without Kevin Spacey

Netflix will resume production of House of Cards' sixth season early next year, and the final season of the popular show will not include Kevin Spacey.

Deadline reports that the final season will center around Robin Wright's Claire Underwood, who was newly elected president of the United States and the end of the show's fifth season.

Production on the eight-episode sixth season had been hold due to allegations of sexual misconduct made against Spacey.

Sarandos said there would be eight episodes and that they would be produced in 2018. Sarandos said that he was glad that Netflix was able to reach a deal for the "2,000 people in Baltimore" who work on the series. The announcement was made following a number of allegations levelled against the actor.

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