Netflix exec coy on ‘House of Cards’ return’, says show was the end planned out before Kevin Spacey scandal

Netflix boss says ending ‘House of Cards’, after Season 6 it was always the plan.


LOS ANGELES, California. Fans of the popular Netflix original series “House of Cards” have the show comes to an end, since the former star, Kevin Spacey, came under fire for sexual misconduct allegations.

However, while Netflix Vice President for Original Series Cindy Holland was tight-lipped about the return of the political drama, she admitted that the series has always been an endgame in stone.

“I have no date to announce for you today. We are really proud of the show, and it is a fitting end,” she told reporters Sunday at the Television Critics Association Summer Press Tour at The Beverly Hilton.

“We had always planned for Season 6 to be the last season, and we are very proud of the work that Robin, Michael and the entire cast and crew have done.”

As previously reported, it was Robin Wright who lobbied to save “House of Cards”, after rumors swirled that the series was doomed.

“We have great showrunners, Frank [Pugliese], and Melissa [Gibson], and they killed themselves to think about the whole show,” Patricia Clarkson said “The interview” in July. “It’s only eight episodes. … I think it’s going to be a beautiful, beautiful new season, and I’m grateful for that.”

Clarkson made her debut on the series halfway through Season 5 of Jane Davis, Deputy Undersecretary of Commerce for International Trade and a veteran of the DC wars. Her character was a valuable source of information and support — for the second President Underwood return for the sixth and final season.

Netflix has a premiere.
