Sarandos confirms House of Cards restart

Sarandos confirms House of Cards restart

Netflix programming chief Sarandos said the season will finish with eight episodes, slightly shorter than normal for the title.

Sarandos reportedly said the series' final bow will "bring closure of the show for fans", many of whom had been concerned that Netflix would never wrap up the show after firing Spacey last month in the wake of sexual misconduct allegations against the star.

Netflix has chose to move forward with the final season of "House of Cards" without Kevin Spacey, a source familiar with the decision tells CNN. Wright plays Claire Underwood, Frank's wife.

Sarandos says production will not continue until next year, probably to get scripts finalised.

The decision, now made official, had been rumored for some time Star Trek: Discovery actor Anthony Rapp went public with allegations of unwanted sexual assault from Spacey on October 29. "We will continue to work with [producer Media Rights Capital] during this hiatus time to evaluate our path forward as it relates to the show". It was considered likely that Spacey would be written out of the show. Production on the first two episodes had already been completed and a table read for episode three was on the schedule.

First elements of response, with the announcement of a Kevin Spacey totally absent from the season.

House of Cards was too big of a hit to simply bail out on it, so the team has clearly had to make adjustments.

In November, Netflix said it wouldn't be involved with the series if Spacey remained.

Sarandos also announced on Monday that Netflix will expand the number of animated feature films it creates, potentially releasing four or five per year. Spacey was also removed from CBS' Carol Burnett 50th Anniversary Special.
