Will there be more House of Cards? Not with Spacey

Will there be more House of Cards? Not with Spacey

Netflix has fired Kevin Spacey from "House of Cards" after sexual harassment allegations against the actor. Netflix bosses are now reportedly working with House of Cards production company officials at Media Rights Capital to determine what to do with the show for its sixth and final season.

Spacey's contract could prevent the show from continuing without him, according to Variety.

"We have also decided we will not be moving forward with the release of Gore, which was in post-production, starring and produced by Kevin Spacey", the streaming service has said.

Production on the show's sixth season, which was announced last week as its last, has been suspended "until further notice".

Intel and AMD are forming an unholy laptop chip alliance
But AMD recently launched chips that represent the first real competition for Intel in that market for years. The goal, Intel explains, is to deliver the power that discrete graphics offer, but in a thinner package.

Immediately after the BuzzFeed News report, Spacey, 58, issued a statement in which he said he did not remember the incident with Rapp but "sincerely apologized".

Spacey, who has had a successful career in film, television and theatre, is one of several big names in the entertainment business to be accused of sexual misconduct by people coming forward in the wake of allegations against movie producer Harvey Weinstein.

Spacey said he would go for unspecified "treatment" for the pattern of abusive behaviour, and also came out of the closet as gay.

Another accuser is Harry Dreyfuss, the actor son of Richard Dreyfuss, who said Spacey groped him at Spacey's London apartment while his father was present but not aware what was happening, according to Vox.

On Thursday, Spacey was dropped by his agent at CAA.

The streaming company suspended production earlier this week of the upcoming sixth and final season of the political intrigue drama, in which Spacey plays U.S. president Frank Underwood.

For now, Netflix has not shared their plans for possible "House of Cards" spinoffs. It was the first original online-only television series to garner major Emmy Award nominations.
