A declaration said: “We will carry on to workings with Media Rights Capital (production company) throughout this intermission time to assess our track ahead on account of the fact that it correlates to the series. Moreover, we have also made a decision that we won’t be going ahead along with the debut of the film Gore, which stands in the state of post-production with the star and producer – Kevin Spacey.”
Netflix shut down the production for House of Cards season 6 till any further notification and asked for a little time to evaluate the present-day situation and further address the concerns relating to the cast and crew members. Season 6 is presumed to be the final chapter for the web series.
According to Netflix, House of Cards production halted after Spacey, who plays Frank Underwood, was alleged found involved in a sexual harassment case dating 1986 harassing a teenage boy and filed by Anthony Rapp. Rapp said that he was just 14 when Spacey tried to seduce him at night after inviting him to a party at his penthouse.
However, Spacey denied the accusation saying he honestly don’t remember any such moment. However, he said that if he had done any such act, it would be a case of the extremely drunken situation and he is apologetic for the same.

Executives from both the companies came out to meet cast and crew and make them feel safe and supported. They announced that Spacey isn’t going to work with them until and unless the matter is completely solved.
Netflix said that they decided to end HouseOfCards some months ago. There are reports saying that producers are looking out for some spin-off ideas and one will be lead by Michael Kelly’s Doug Stamper.
Spacey came out and revealed his sexuality as a ‘gay man’ confirming decades of rumors. LGBTQ+ actors and activists condemned his act thinking that he used it as a deflection.
In a conversation with actor Zachary Quinto, he said: “It is extremely gloomy and disturbing that this is the way how Kevin Spacey has opted to be out. Not by existing as a point of pride. Though reflecting as a calculated control to divert heed from the very momentous charge.”
