"House of Cards" Will Continue-Just Without Kevin Spacey

But now Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos has assured fans the show will continue next year (18), with Robin Wright in a starring role.

"We were really excited we could get to an agreement" and wanted to provide "closure to fans", he said, Variety reported.

Netflix fired Spacey in November after the first allegations of sexual misconduct against him surfaced in late October when Star Trek: Discovery actor Anthony Rapp said Spacey had made sexual moves on him in his NY apartment in 1986, when Rapp was 14.

Sarandos said there would be eight episodes and that they would be produced in 2018. Perhaps, more importantly, it means 2,000 people who work in the Baltimore area will continue to have work and not be punished for the misconduct of one person. The announcement was made following a number of allegations levelled against the actor.

Netflix Inc severed ties in November with Spacey, one of its biggest stars who played fictional USA president Frank Underwood in "House of Cards", after accusations of sexual misconduct against the Oscar-winning actor.

Sarandos also said Netflix will expand animated feature films, potentially releasing four or five per year, and has 60 kids' series in production along with 30 anime originals from Japan.

Production is still on pause for the rest of the year, though. There have been numerous discussions about how the show would finish or even if it would finish, after the departure of the Oscar-winning lead, Kevin Spacey, from the show.

What do you think about this decision for House of Cards season 6?

Spacey said after the first allegation that he was "beyond horrified" by Rapp's claim of assault.
