Sarandos confirms House of Cards restart

Netflix suspended production of the sixth season of House of Cards at the end of October after actor Anthony Rapp came forward to accuse Spacey of making unwanted sexual advances toward him more than three decades ago when Rapp was underage. "So, I'm really happy that the people that work on House of Cards are continuing to get to do that work".

Last month, Netflix stopped production of House of Cards' sixth season and severed its relationship with Spacey after several people - including Star Trek: Discovery actor Anthony Rapp - accused the Oscar victor of sexual misconduct.

A publicist for Wright was not immediately available for comment.

Discovery actor alleged the Oscar victor had pinned him to a bed in his apartment when Rapp was just 14. Only later did other cast members learn that the reason involved stories of "inappropriate sexual behavior" with a young actor.

Ted Sarandos has confirmed House of Cards final season will be eight episodes and be led by Wright. Spacey was sacked from his role following a series of allegations of sexual misconduct. Production on the House of Cards set had been shut down ever since, as Media Rights Capital investigated the situation.

Amid the scandal, Netflix announced that Season 6 would the show's last and that Spacey would no longer be a part of the project.

The first five seasons of "House of Cards" starred Spacey as Frank Underwood, a ruthless Southern politician who ascends to the presidency.

At this time, scripts are still being produced before the show kicks back into production but the leading theory is that Spacey's character, disgraced president Frank Underwood, will be written off the show with some sort of off screen death.
