Previous seasons of House of Cards had 13 episodes, but this sixth season will have only eight.
Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos said that the show will go into production at the start of 2018 and that it will "bring closure of the show for fans". It will be an eight-episode season.
According to reports, the series will now be centered on Robin Wright's Claire Underwood, the wife of Spacey's character. And while there were rumors about a possible spin-off featuring none other than Robin Wright, it now looks like she'll be leading the final episodes of the Netflix hit - without Spacey.
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.
As RadarOnline.com has learned, Netflix made a decision to keep their popular show running, yet the plot of the next season has been entirely changed.
Anthony Rapp, the actor who was the first to come forward with allegations against Spacey, had been receiving vicious messages online by angry House of Cards fans, who were anxious because of Rapp's revelations that the show would be canceled altogether.
Of those series, Netflix will continue The Crown, which Sarandos said is the business' "most efficient shows" for obtaining and keeping subscribers.
When the allegations surfaced the political thriller had been filming its sixth season, but production was halted.
Since Rapp came forward, more than a dozen men have accused Spacey of misconduct ranging from groping to assault in episodes as recent as past year and as far back as three decades.
