'House of Cards' suspends production indefinitely amid Kevin Spacey scandal

Kevin Spacey

Netflix announced Monday that it was pulling the plug on "House of Cards", which stars Spacey.

Less than a day after announcing that House of Cards would end after the upcoming sixth season, Netflix has suspended production on the new season indefinitely.

More intriguing for fans of the show is the possibility that House of Cards season 6 - which is likely to be released in Q2 2018 (April-June) - could see Spacey prematurely dropped following the allegations, which have understandably taken both Hollywood and the LGBTQ community by storm.

Season six is due to arrive on Netflix in the middle of next year, and the streamer said it had always intended for it to be the show's last run even prior to this week's allegations against its star. But Netflix had already made a decision to end the show and was pursuing a spinoff. He issued an apology for his "deeply inappropriate drunken behavior", that was widely criticized given that he also used it to come out as a gay man. Spacey has been nominated five times for his work.

Rapp, now 46, said he came forward after allegations against Harvey Weinstein sparked conversations about sexual abuse and harassment in the entertainment industry.

Rapp said the encounter occurred after a party Spacey hosted at his NY apartment, where he said Spacey, then 26, found him watching TV alone at the end of the night when other guests had left, then carried him to a bed and lay down on top of him.




A former Boston news anchor is speaking out after reports of inappropriate sexual advances on a minor by actor Kevin Spacey.

Soon, Twitter was flooded with memes from people who were equally dumbfounded and angered by Spacey's approach to the allegations.

"I honestly do not remember the encounter, it would have been over 30 years ago", Spacey stated.

"House of Cards" creator Beau Willimon wrote on Twitter Monday that he supports Rapp's courage for speaking out.

He went on to say that Rapp's accusation "encouraged me to address other things about my life", and that "I know that there are stories out there about me".
