  • With Kevin Spacey out final ‘House of Cards’ season will lead with Robin Wright

As previously reported, the Star Trek: Discovery actor claimed in an interview with BuzzFeed News published on October 29 that the House of Cards star, 58, made unwanted sexual advances toward him at a party in 1986. Oh, and did we mention those final eight episodes will star the one and only, Robin Wright (Claire Underwood)?

The filming of the series shut down in November, and given that most of the script was written prior to the allegations against Spacey coming out, it'll be interesting to see what they do with it from here.

He said: "We are excited to bring closure to fans".

Actor Anthony Rapp says he is "gratified" by the responses he has received in the wake of his sexual misconduct allegations against Kevin Spacey.

The final season was originally billed as 13 episodes, with production already having been completed on the initial two at the time Spacey's scandal ignited.

Kevin Spacey attends the "House Of Cards" Season 4 Premiere in Washington, DC on February 22, 2016.

According to a report by The Guardian, it is also rumoured that Netflix is seeking to launch a House of Cards spin-off to extend the life of their most successful franchise. It debuted in 2013 to much critical acclaim and helped put the subscription service among the big terrestrial channels.

The streaming giant similarly decided not to move forward with a film starring Spacey as Gore Vidal. Rapp alleged that Spacey, then 26, laid "down on top" of him in a bedroom and "was trying to seduce" him.
