House of Cards creators confirm Kevin Spacey won't appear in final season

Netflix (NFLX) Stock Price, Financials and News | Fortune 500

"We have made an arrangement to produce six seasons of "House of Cards".

The production of season 6 was suspended in October, following sexual assault allegations against the star.

Former House of Cards employees have claimed Spacey turned the set into a "toxic" environment through a pattern of harassment, and similar claims have been made regarding The Old Vic, the London theater where he was artistic director from 2003-2015.

"We're really excited about bringing some closure to the show for fans", said Ted Sarandos, the chief content officer at Netflix speaking at the UBS conference as reported by Variety.

Knicks facing hard road without Hardaway
The Knicks, meanwhile, had no reaction to the Pacers , who had six players score in double-digits by the end of the third quarter. After ending a nine-game losing streak with a 121-108 win over Oklahoma City on November 29, the Magic have won two of three.

Netflix has optednotto pull the plug on House of Cards in the wake of Kevin Spacey's abrupt termination and will instead refocus the series' sixth and final season around Robin Wright's Claire Underwood. The streaming giant has reached an agreement to resume the show without Spacey and the current sixth season being the last with just 8 episodes against the usual 13.

The final season of the hit series will have eight episodes. In early November, Netflix went a step further, announcing that the service would no longer work with Spacey, also deciding to shelve the release of the actor's Gore Vidal biopic, a Netflix original feature film that was already in post-production this fall.

Claire Underwood has moved center stage since "House of Cards" premiered in 2013, going from the wife of Spacey's congressman to first lady and then vice president.

Spacey, meanwhile, "is taking the time necessary to seek evaluation and treatment" his rep said last month.
