'House of Cards' will end after its forthcoming sixth series, Netflix has announced. The show's star, Kevin Spacey, was this week accused of making sexual advances towards the then-14-year-old 'Star Trek: Discovery' actor Anthony Rapp back in 1986.
'House of Cards' stars Spacey as Frank Underwood, a US president who's prepared to act ruthlessly to get his way, even if it involves manipulation and even murder.
The last series is set to air next year.
Netflix released a joint statement with 'House of Cards' producer Media Rights Capital in response to the allegations.
"In response to last night's revelations, executives from both of our companies arrived in Baltimore this afternoon to meet with our cast and crew and to ensure that they continue to feel safe and supported," it reads. "As previously scheduled, Kevin Spacey is not working on set at this time."
Netflix confirmed that the decision to end the show had been made months before, and it isn't directly related to the Spacey allegations.
