>> The final season of House of Cards is coming. And Netflix said Monday, it'll focus on actress Robin Wright's character as the first female President on the show. Netflix suspended production of its Blockbuster political drama and cut ties in November with the show's star Kevin Spacey. After accusations of sexual misconduct against the Oscar winning actor.
Reuters was unable to independently confirm the accusations. Spacey played the fictional US President, Frank Underwood, in the drama. Netflix says the sixth and final season will be shortened to eight episodes instead of the usual 13, and production will start in 2018. But the company isn't saying when it will air or how Spacey's character will be treated in the show.
