Ever since the allegations of sexual abuse surfaced against actor Kevin Spacey, things have not been good for ‘House Of Cards’ and Netflix. 

Amidst reports of scrapping the show, Netflix has now come to an agreement to resume the production of this political thriller and the shooting of season 6 will start in early 2018.

The indefinite pause on the show’s production has now finally been lifted and the final season is now coming back with a bang on Netflix, but without the conniving protagonist Frank Underwood. In fact, it’s also been rumoured that Netflix is planning to launch a ‘House of Cards’ spin-off.

According to Variety, the producers were contemplating to kill Frank Underwood, the devious, Machiavellian politician and focus on his wife in the final season.

‘House Of Cards’ was Netflix’s first original series that made its debut in 2013. Within no time the show’s popularity was hitting the roof, for reasons everyone knows – amazing plot, impeccable performance and most importantly, Frank Underwood.

Although it’s difficult to imagine ‘House of Cards’ without Spacey, fans can be assured that they are not losing out on any thrill because Claire Underwood, in the later seasons has shown what all she is capable of and that she truly deserves to stand equal to Spacey’s character.

From a lobbyist running an environmental nonprofit organization to climbing up the ladder to sit on positions like Second Lady of the United States, First Lady of the United States, the United States Ambassador to the United Nations, Vice President of the United States and finally the 47th President of the United States; we don’t think there’s anything this woman can’t do.

Since the beginning of the series, we knew that Claire wasn’t going to be a trophy wife and that she will have her own storyline. And with her performance, she proved that Claire, who is often called as ‘ice-queen’, will stop at nothing to get what she wants and probably that’s what makes us want to see more of her. Honestly, we can’t wait to see how the story unfolds, now that Claire Underwood is not under Frank’s thumb.

In fact, Wright once stated that she felt Claire Underwood was the equal of Frank Underwood and demanded and equal pay for her performance. Well, given that she was the first actress to win a Golden Globe Award (Best Actress for Television Series Drama) for a web online-only series, we think she deserves all the credits for making us love and hate Claire.

This last season of ‘House of Cards’ will be shorter than the rest and will have eight episodes, but like they say “good things come in small packages”, so we can’t wait for this last season to release. 

Recently, Kevin Spacey came out as gay on Twitter and apologized publicly, after he was alleged of sexually assaulting actor Anthony Rapp, when he was 14-year-old. Media Rights Capital, the studio behind the show, said they were “deeply troubled by the news concerning Kevin Spacey.”
