'House of Cards' Production: Final Season Shooting Resumes

The eight-episode season - which will be the last of the series - will begin production in early 2018, Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos said at a NY conference, according to Variety and The Wrap. The final season will not include Spacey, as previously announced.

Instead, the final season will focus on Robin Wright's character, Claire Underwood, who's gone from being the first lady to vice president and then ascended to the presidency in Season 5 after her husband resigned.

"We are excited to bring closure to fans", Sarandos said during a conference on Monday, revealing that the 2,000 people who work on the show will get to return to work next year.

While we don't know how Spacey's Frank will be written off the show, all signs seem to point to him being killed off-screen, something which is sure to have ramifications throughout the final season. Netflix suspended production on the show in the wake of sexual-assault allegations against Spacey.

However, Sarandos did not say how Spacey's absence will be explained in the new season.

It was announced in an official statement by Netflix that the company would no longer be affiliated with the once, critically-acclaimed actor following the on-going accusations against him.

Netflix has fully parted ways with Spacey, cancelling the "Gore" film it had in the pipeline that was set to star Spacey.

That left "House of Cards" writers with a problem: They has to rewrite a show that already had been finalized and completed production on two episodes. The fifth season of the drama ended with her character taking over as US president.
