Netflix Cancels ‘House of Cards’ After Kevin Spacey Allegations

UPDATE: Filming on the sixth season of Netflix’s “House of Cards” has been suspended indefinitely, Deadline reports.

“MRC and Netflix have decided to suspend production on House of Cards season six, until further notice, to give us time to review the current situation and to address any concerns of our cast and crew,” the two companies told Deadline in a joint statement.

Netflix has decided to cancel original series “House of Cards” in the wake of Anthony Rapp’s allegations of sexual misconduct against Kevin Spacey.

In an explosive BuzzFeed story, actor Anthony Rapp says Spacey befriended him while they both were performing on Broadway in 1986.

Rapp was 14 when he attended a party at a 26-year-old Spacey’s apartment. At the end of the night, Spacey “picked Rapp up, placed him on his bed, and climbed on top of him, making a sexual advance.”

Spacey has since released a statement, choosing this moment to come out as gay, a move that brought the actor an avalanche of criticism.
