Netflix suspends 'House of Cards' production after Spacey allegations

Netflix to end Cards amid Spacey claims

House Of Cards spin-offs could be in the works in the wake of its cancellation

'As previously scheduled, Kevin Spacey is not working on set at this time'.

The streamer and Media Rights Capital, producers of the series, released a joint statement on Monday in response to the allegations against Spacey, saying they were "deeply troubled".

The streaming channel, which is reportedly weighing different concepts for the spin-off, said yesterday the upcoming sixth season will be the last for House of Cards.

On Monday, the companies announced that the next season of "House of Cards" would be its last.

It was also announced that the 58-year-old actor, who was meant to be honoured by the International TV Academy with an Emmy Founders Award in November, will no longer receive his Emmy Award.

Rapp, 46, told Buzzfeed that in 1986, while both he and Spacey were performing on Broadway, Spacey invited the then 14-year-old to a party at his NY home.

In an essay for the Daily Beast, reporter Ira Madison III called Spacey's decision to come out of the closet "all the more cold and calculated", seeing as he must know it could change the subject in the wake of Rapp's allegations.

Rose McGowan Excoriates Hollywood: "It's Time to Clean House"
Speaking at the Women's Convention in Detroit on Friday (10.27.17), she said: "I have been silenced for 20 years. That statistic has not changed since 1946, so we are given one view, and I know the men behind that view.

"Coming out stories should not be used to deflect from allegations of sexual assault", said Sarah Kate Ellis, president of the pro-LGBT media monitor organization GLAAD.

That raises the prospect that season 6 of House of Cards could swiftly do away with Spacey's character, Frank Underwood, and refocus the show around his wife Claire Underwood, played by Robin Wright.

But rather than tempering an uproar over the allegation, Spacey's combination of an apology with a statement going public about his sexual orientation stirred a backlash against the actor as Hollywood found itself embroiled in yet another sex scandal.

More details to come.

He went on to state: 'That said, I take reports of such behavior seriously and this is no exception.

Casting for the next season of House of Cards is understood to be commencing in November, so expect the leaks and rumours to start flying shortly.
