Netflix resuming production of last season of House of Cards

Netflix resuming production of last season of House of Cards

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.

We've always been huge fans of Claire Underwood's character and have been championing her as the real star of the show for a number of years.

While the series is one of Netflix's flagship productions, Sarandos also explained that it was important for the the show to continue so the some-2000 Baltimore-area workers and artisans who make House Of Cards happen could return to their jobs.

"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.

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. There is no word yet on when the final season of House of Cards will debut.

Sarandos added that the season will provide closure for fans.

The political drama was put on hold in the wake of sexual harassment allegations against the Oscar-winning actor. Celebrities were infuriated by his out-of-place response, as was Netflix, who fired him and suspended production for House Of Cards as soon as they heard of his allegedly sick acts. Now the show will continue with Robin Wright in the lead and give everyone involved a satisfying ending.

Last week, the production company, MRC, told the cast and crew the suspension of Netflix' first major original show would be extended through December 8 but said the crew would be paid during the break. The 200-member crew of the hit drama has been on a paid hiatus since early November as Netflix and Media Rights Capital tried to sort out the future of the show without its star.

Spacey has said that he owed Rapp "the sincerest apology for what would have been deeply inappropriate drunken behavior".
