‘House Of Cards’ To Resume Production In 2018; Will Get Shorter Final Season

Netflix has confirmed that House Of Cards will resume production in the early part of 2018. Production was halted earlier this year following accusations of sexual harassment against series star Kevin Spacey. The final series, its sixth, will be comprised of just eight episodes rather than the usual thirteen.

“We are excited to bring closure to fans,” Ted Sarandos, Chief Content Officer for Netflix said on Monday.

There is no news on how the show will continue in terms of story with Spacey out of the fold, but the streamer has already confirmed that it is looking at possibilities for future spin-off Tv series’, one of which could feature Michael Kelly’s Doug Stamper.

The award-winning production was the very first Netflix original series, launching on the service in 2014. Robin Wright, Michael Kelly, Jayne Atkinson, Neve Campbell, Derek Cecil, Paul Sparks and Joel Kinnaman are also amongst its cast.

House of Cards: Season Six Production Expected to Resume

Production for the sixth and final season of the House of Cards TV show on Netflix could resume after Friday, December 8, 2017. Netflix suspended production at the end of October, after news broke of sexual misconduct allegations against Kevin Spacey, who has starred as Frank Underwood since the series' premiere. Now it looks like the unplanned break may soon come to an end. A political thriller, House of Cards also stars Robin Wright as Claire Underwood. The Netflix cast also includes: Michael Kelly, Jayne Atkinson, Neve Campbell, Derek Cecil, Paul Sparks, and Joel Kinnaman. After the accusations were made public, but before suspending production, Netflix also announced House of Cards would end with season six. Read More…

House Of Cards To Resume Production Early Next Month

Netflix’s House of Cards has been left in a state of disarray amid the damning allegations leveled against Kevin Spacey.

The Frank Underwood actor was thrust into the eye of a ferocious media storm late last month when Star Trek Discovery‘s Anthony Rapp accused Spacey, then 26, of making a sexual advance toward him when he was only 14. Soon after that, the floodgates opened, leaving Netflix with little choice but to formally dismiss Kevin Spacey from the House of Cards camp.

His absence seemingly leaves the door open for multiple spinoffs – spinoffs that could potentially shift the spotlight over to Claire Underwood (Robin Wright) and/or Doug Stamper (Michael Kelly) – but a new update from the streaming service has revealed that for now, the focus is still very much on season 6, with production set to resume next month, on December 8th.

Every ‘Black Mirror’ Episode Ranked, From Worst to Best

Every ‘Black Mirror’ Episode Ranked, From Worst to Best
Comparing installments of an anthology like “Black Mirror” is an inherently tricky prospect. Most of the entries have a certain “We’re all doomed” streak that runs through them, but whether hopeful or defeatist, there’s something distinctly different animating each of these episodes.

Arranging them in quality doesn’t necessarily make for the ideal viewing order either. Want to bit of uplift with your futurism? Bent on basking in the futility of trying to avoid a planet without dangerous automated attacks against nature? The rhythms of this series rise and fall more on their themes than the wallop each of these stories delivers.

But if you’re a die-hard fan or just wading into Charlie Brooker and Annabel Jones’ murky sci-fi waters, a new season is on the horizon, so we’re adding our rankings to the mix.

House Of Cards May Not Be Able To Continue Without Kevin Spacey After All

Netflix’s House of Cards has been left in a state of disarray amid the damning allegations leveled against Kevin Spacey.

The Frank Underwood actor was thrust into the eye of a ferocious media storm late last month when Star Trek actor Anthony Rapp accused Spacey, then 26, of making a sexual advance toward him when he was only 14.

His absence seemingly leaves the door open for multiple spinoffs – spinoffs that could potentially shift the focus over to Claire Underwood (Robin Wright) and/or Doug Stamper (Michael Kelly) – but a new report from Blast warns that the inevitable transition may not be so simple after all. In fact, House of Cards may not be able to continue without Kevin Spacey.

  • OnTheFlix
Hey, "House Of Cards" fans. This definitely won't be a happy article for you guys. Currently, there are multiple reports circulating about the show and it's main star Kevin Spacey (above right) that are totally negative! There's nothing positive going on here. The series of bad news started when main star Kevin Spacey who plays character Francis Underwood on the show got accused of serious sexual harassment! A report from the folks over at TV Line revealed that Star Trek: Discovery actor Anthony Rapp claimed that in 1986, Kevin made an unwanted sexual advance towards him. At the time, Anthony was only 14 years old and Kevin was 26 years old. After Anthony's claims surfaced, even more men came out with allegations against Kevin. One of the guys claimed that at age 14, he started a sexual relationship with Spacey that ended with an attempted rape! If that weren't bad enough, there are new

‘The Long Road Home’ Review: Iraq War Miniseries Has a Compelling Cast But Doesn’t Trust the Drama of Its Own Story

‘The Long Road Home’ Review: Iraq War Miniseries Has a Compelling Cast But Doesn’t Trust the Drama of Its Own Story
The closing minutes of the opening episode of “The Long Road Home” is a harrowing piece of television. Built up over the course of a half hour of tearful goodbyes, skeptical glances, and tiny rifts in neighborhood peace, a platoon of soldiers patrolling Sadr City in Baghdad comes under fire from all sides. An afternoon convoy of tanks rolling through the streets of Iraq soon becomes a bloodbath as a tense, uneasy peace gives way to chaos.

While there are seven additional installments of the Nat Geo miniseries based on Martha Raddatz’s 2007 book, that premiere is an effective representative of the show as a whole, preamble and all. Immersive in scenes of combat, disorienting when it hops between its myriad backstories, and clunky in its attempts at small talk, “The Long Road Home” rises and falls in many of the same ways that on-screen war stories do.

Kevin Spacey’s Alleged Behavior On House Of Cards Was Well Known Among The Crew

As the Kevin Spacey saga continues to fester, a number of crew members behind House of Cards have now come forward to BuzzFeed with allegations that Spacey’s inappropriate, “predatory” behavior was well known among the show’s directors and producers.

The report, which was first published on Monday, alleges that Spacey developed a reputation for sexual misconduct, and frequently abused his power on the Netflix flagship to prey on younger men. And at least based on these new statements, key members of the House of Cards team were seemingly complicit in the cover-up, as one anonymous crew member told BuzzFeed:

They knew about his behavior toward younger men specifically on set. They were all watching…and they see behavior on camera and off camera that was uncomfortable and unprofessional. Unprofessional for a set, to be honest.

Another staffer, who spoke under the condition of anonymity, called Beau Willimon’s

House of Cards: Season Six in Doubt as Netflix Suspends Production

Has the house that Frank Underwood built come tumbling down? Netflix has suspended production on the sixth season of its House of Cards TV show, "until further notice." Yesterday, in wake of allegations involving star Kevin Spacey, Netflix had announced House of Cards would end with its upcoming sixth season, leaving it effectively cancelled, but with one more installment to come.

Michael Kelly, Jayne Atkinson, Neve Campbell, Derek Cecil, Paul Sparks, and Joel Kinnaman also star. The fifth season debuted Netflix on May 30, 2017.

‘House of Cards’: There Should Be No Spinoffs — Let It Fold

‘House of Cards’: There Should Be No Spinoffs — Let It Fold
House of Cards” was built on the backs of three men and carried — beyond its original designs — by one woman. What began as a collaboration between David Fincher and Beau Willimon, starring Kevin Spacey as the power-hungry politico Frank Underwood, soon became “The Robin Wright Show,” as the actress made the most of a character who had more qualms, better plans, and a stronger arc than her husband’s.

But even Claire can’t hold “House of Cards” together anymore. Though fans needn’t look beyond a disappointing and dull fifth season for reason to celebrate a fixed ending — Season 6 will be the last — there are reasons beyond a dip in quality to let this story die, and they begin with an actor on the outs, Kevin Spacey.
