7:30 pm Update: Netflix has whacked House of Cards star Kevin Spacey over numerous sexual assault and harassment claims. Does this mean they’re killing the show or what? They’d be crazy not to keep it going. All they have to do is rewrite the script so they can kill off Underwood, leaving Robin Wright to take over.
“Netflix will not be involved with any further production of House of Cards that includes Kevin Spacey,” a spokesman for Netflix said in a statement. “We will continue to work with MRC during this hiatus time to evaluate our path forward as it relates to the show.”
Earlier: I don’t know how far along the sixth and final season of Netflix’s House of Cards might be (on 10.31.17 it was reported that production has been suspended indefinitely), but Stephen Whitty‘s suggestion for how to deal with the Kevin Spacey matter makes sense. I would love to see Claire Underwood (Robin Wright) occupy the Oval Office. I don’t think I’m the only one.
