Netflix announces the end of political drama 'House of Cards' only hours after Spacey allegations surface

ADVERTISEMENT

Netflix is ending its popular political drama “House of Cards”. The announcement that the forthcoming sixth season will be its last comes less than 24-hours after the series star Kevin Spacey became embroiled in sexual misconduct allegations.

Actor Anthony Rapp has claimed in a published interview that when he was a 14-year-old, Spacey made unwanted sexual advances, in 1986.

Spacey has used social media to apologies saying he did not recall the alleged seduction attempt but that it would have been “deeply inappropriate drunken behaviour.”

Media Rights Capital and Netflix, who produce House of Cards, released a statement on Monday in response to the claims against Spacey, saying they were “deeply troubled” by the news.

However a Netflix spokesperson has also said that the decision to end the show was made months earlier, and not in response to the allegations about Spacey.
