NETFLIX Cancels ‘House of Cards’ Amid Kevin Spacey Scandal
Netflix has cancelled ‘House of Cards’ amid the Kevin Spacey scandal. The show will end after its upcoming sixth season, according to the streaming service.
This cancellation comes hot on the heels of actor Anthony Rapp’s claims that Spacey tried to seduce him when he was 14-years-old.
“Media Rights Capital and Netflix are deeply troubled by last night’s news concerning Kevin Spacey,” the companies said in a joint statement today. “In response to last night’s revelations, executives from both of our companies arrived in Baltimore this afternoon to meet with our cast and crew to ensure that they continue to feel safe and supported. As previously scheduled, Kevin Spacey is not working on set at this time.”
‘House of Cards,’ which began airing in 2013, was one of Netflix’s original programming series.
The 13-episode Season 6 of ‘House of Cards’ is expected to debut in mid-2018 on Netflix.
