Grand opening, grand closing. Netflix has canceled House Of Cards after six seasons, and it’s totally Kevin Spacey’s fault.
The Oscar Award-winning actor went full headass after Anthony Rapp revealed that Spacey made a pass at him back in the day, when he was just 14-years-old.
Spacey apologized while adding the totally pointless caveat that he now chooses to live as an openly gay man.
After all the obligatory “WTF’s” and outrage, Netflix announced today that House Of Cards, which stars Spacey as Frank Underwood, is a wrap.
The sixth season of the drama has started filming.
“Media Rights Capital and Netflix are deeply troubled by last night’s news concerning Kevin Spacey,” said the show’s producers in a statement today (Oct. 30). “In response to last night’s revelations, executives from both of our companies arrived in Baltimore this afternoon to meet with our cast and crew to ensure that they continue to feel safe and supported. As previously scheduled, Kevin Spacey is not working on set at this time.”
