“House Of Cards” Is Officially Coming Back Sans Kevin Spacey

In news that should shock nobody, production is set to officially resume on Netflix’s House Of Cards without the accused sexual predator Kevin Spacey. That means the last season will be all about Robin Wright. In related news, I vote we rename the show House Of Icy Bobs And Pencil Skirts.

Actually, that could also be the name of any given documentary on Vogue, so I guess we can keep the name as-is. The Hollywood Reporter reports the show will come back with a shorter-than-usual eight-episode season to tie up loose ends (it was originally expected to be 13 episodes). There has been speculation over whether or not there is going to be a spin-off of the show, as a Frank Underwood-less season seems to lend a lot of time to develop new character lines.

As you know, Anthony Rapp came forward with a story accusing Kevin of assaulting him when he was only 14 and Kevin was 26. A former Boston newscaster then accused Kevin of molesting her 18-year-old son on Nantucket in the summer of 2016. THEN, London’s Old Vic theater came forward saying they got 20 complaints about Kevin after they opened a tip line to see if he had done anything while serving as artistic director of the place from 2004 to 2015. Kevin’s career has since gone the way of the Hindenburg. Netflix put House of Cards on a hiatus, but decided not to toss the whole thing out.

Hopefully this will get those House Of Cards freakish fans off poor Anthony’s Instagram since their show is coming back and a Frank-less show is guaranteed to be better than anything put forth for the last five seasons. Although, part of me was just hoping Christopher Plummer would make a career of taking over for all of Kevin’s old roles. Christopher as J. Paul Getty! Christopher as Frank Underwood!

  2. LoopyGorilla

    I have never seen it so I don’t give a shit. https://uploads.disquscdn.chttps://uploads.disquscdn.c

  4. Do you know when it is bedtime in the Spacey household?

    When the big hand touches the little hand.

  5. She looks great, she just also looks like a mature woman. It’s refreshing.

  6. Bruinschick

    I hate this new hairstyle they’re trying on her. It’s like they can’t decide what to do with it. I liked it better short, like in the first three seasons.

    I didn’t think it was so bad, but I must admit I took until this last weekend to finish it up, and I only did it bc I was sick and couldn’t do any holiday decorating or anything strenuous.

    This is just to cover their backing the Scientology rapist.

    “Daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaadddddddddddddddyyyyyyyyyyyy!”

  10. Sir Ian Richardson is deliciously evil and makes this show so wonderful, I rematch it every few years, it’s that great!!

  11. Agree with everyone that the last season was terrible: it was so dark. Good for the cast and crew that Netflix is going to fund them another season, but I’m done.

  12. LoopyGorilla

    oh the last season was terrible!
    first 2 seasons I binged watched until 5AM in the morning and went to sleep for 3 hours before going to work.
    but the last season, I think i watched it over 2 months period. the story line was shit

    yes, if Superman sucks just as Spacey does as Frank, fuck yeah you can bet I’d watch the hell out of a movie all about Amy Adam’s Lois Lane rather than lame Henry Cavill. Just the same with Wright: she has been outacting Spacey for the past 5 seasons.

  14. violetpills

    I’m torn. I kind of wish they would let the show die. I loved it for many years but the last season sucked. And now they’ll have to have some silly off-screen death. On the other hand, I do want to see more Claire.

  15. Maximillian Suthra

    I quit HoC 5 epiosodes into the 2nd season so, meh. That said, would you watch a Man of Steel movie, without Superman?

  16. 🎄🎄ℱḯⅾⅾℓεÐεℯÐ℮℮🎄🎄

    It looks like Robin is trying to age gracefully. THANK GOD

  17. That’s the least flattering pic of Robin Wright I’ve ever seen. She’s typically stunning.

  18. giddybeaver

    I don’t know much about Robin Wright but for some reason I like her. I couldn’t even make it through the 1st episode of season 1, but I’ll watch the last 8 episodes now.
    P.S.: Burn in hell Spacey, you didler.

  19. Christopher Plummer as Captain von Trapp. Forever.

    is safe to say that Spacey’s performance was ruining the show even if it was a show built around him, he just has been phoning in. That alongside terrible writing right since season 2 (and thus this is also Beau Willimon’s fault, but he quit this bitch just a year ago saving a bit of ass) He was just giving a ridiculous and lazy performance. Wright’s Claire Underwood is a fascinating character and she play her marvelously and if they manage to give her better writers this season they can pull off to leave with bang, just how it started. Maybe even a well deserved Emmy for Wright, she is pure brilliance and everyone’s agrees she’s the best part f the show.

  21. Not sure why this took so long. All they had to do was have Spacey and Wright’s characters win the election then have some bullet fragment float loose and cause him to stroke out and die.

    Netflix, that will be $250,000 please.

    Sorta on topic, but Bryan Singer just got fired from directing his recent film.

    I’m glad that the fans will get a finale. Not the one they were expecting, but one nonetheless.

    I got off the train after the abysmal season three with Delta Burkes used-to-be-handsome husband.

    I do still read the synopsis for a season when it drops but I don’t care to watch. Too many episodes per season!! They can drag a plot line out like no other.

    Didn’t we already have this article 3x?

  25. CaliCheeseSucks

    Meh. I revisited the original over the weekend and they did it right. Three seasons, twelve episodes. Boom. A masterpiece.
