'House Of Cards' back on - without Kevin Spacey

"We are excited to bring closure to fans", Mr Sarandos said, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Spacey was ultimately booted from the series following multiple accusations of sexual harassment.

All of Spacey's scenes were also erased from the upcoming film All the Money in the World, in light of the allegations made against Spacey.

The star, who plays president Frank Underwood in the show, came under scrutiny after a late October expose accused him of forcing himself upon actor Anthony Rapp when he was only 14 years old.

Sarandos added he was thrilled to have been able to reach the deal for the 370 people who directly work on the popular series and "the 2,000 people in Baltimore" who have jobs working for "HOC". Now the show will continue with Robin Wright in the lead and give everyone involved a satisfying ending. "The way to do that is having a lot of variety, and executing in multiple genres at a high level", Sarandos said, noting Netflix has made forays into unscripted shows and stand-up specials.

Structuring the final season in such a way and abandoning the footage of Spacey seems to be the best thing that the show do in order to move forward and avoid some of the distractions that they would have had otherwise.

Camera IconRobin Wright's Claire Underwood will be the show's focus after Kevin Spacey's exit. Season six was already set to be House of Cards' last before the allegations broke.

It's also been rumored that Netflix is seeking to launch a House of Cards spin-off, eager to extend the franchise of their flagship show.

"Now the streaming service says it will resume production early next year, making an eight-episode final season for the show", NPR's Eric Deggans reports.
