‘House of Cards’ to Resume Production of Final Season, Robin Wright to Lead
It’s her turn to pull the strings.
After the exit of Kevin Spacey in the hit Netflix series “House of Cards,” the show will push through with Robin Wright in the leading role.
The Emmy-nominated actress played Claire Underwood in the show, the equally manipulative and conniving wife of Frank Underwood.
According to the New York Times, the sixth season of “House of Cards” will be its last, and will have eight episodes. It should be noted that the final season of the show is significantly shorter than previous seasons, which is normally 13 episodes.
During the UBS Global Media and Communications Conference, Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos said, “We’re really excited about bringing some closure to the show for fans.”
He also added, “we’re excited for the 370 people who make ‘House of Cards’ and have done the best work of their lives on that show; for the 2,000 people in Baltimore who have come to depend on that show for their jobs. And so we’re really excited that we were able to come to a good creative conclusion to the show.”
According to The Baltimore Sun, production of “House of Cards” resumed, after being in limbo for a month, following the sexual misconduct allegations that hounded Spacey – its star.
Netflix immediately cut ties with Spacey after the news of sexual misconduct broke.
However, some fans expressed concerns on how will Spacey’s character will be written out, given that the show is basically about him. But most fans think otherwise, as the show’s previous season ended with Frank Underwood resigning, with his wife – Claire – ascending into U.S. presidency and saying “my turn.”
It would be interesting in what manner the show will write Spacey’s character out, but one thing is for certain – Claire Underwood’s time is now.
