The move comes after allegations against Kevin Spacey.
October 30, 2017
Netflix announced today that House of Cards will be coming to an end after its upcoming sixth season. The news comes in the wake of recent claims against star Kevin Spacey, who is being accused of a 1986 incident of unwanted sexual advances against then-14-year-old actor Anthony Rapp.
The veteran political drama premiered in 2013 as the streaming service's first-ever original series, and has since gone on to garner a wealth of critical acclaim and accolades for its strong performances and engrossing storytelling. The series put Netflix on the map as a serious player in the television space, paving the way for countless other streaming shows that would follow.
Season 6 of House of Cards just recently began production for an expected premiere in mid-2018, with a 13-episode run that will conclude the series.

Did Kevin Spacey actually think he'd get away with sexual pandering to an underage person? Be sure your sins will find you out. Now his show has been axed. What did you expect?

This show was so good the first few seasons. I was shocked by many things Frank did (well, maybe not totally shocked). Well written and well acted. This current season hasn't interested me much. Maybe too much time between seasons hasn't helped it. But hey it had a good run.

Netflix probably saw the ratings going down and didn't want to take down the whole ship with them. Even if it isn't true why waste time dealing with it if the show only has 2 more seasons anyway.

GREAT show, one of the all time best basically depicting the Clinton Obama reign of terror in the whitehouse (with hollywood stories). If you want shows cancelled b/c of what their stars do, we won't have any TV.

Pedophilia aside, this was a great show. Was... I couldn't make it through the first episode last season. I lost total interest in the show.

I didn't want to chime in here after reading the 1st 4 posts that went up. (3 within mins) Now with all the rest, I can't stay silent. I know these points have been made, but I can't stand not reiterating:
No one has been proven guilty. How would you like it if it was you? Opinions forming without any regard to the actual truth/facts!
The ptb have every right to cancel a show - just NOT because of rumors please.
Of course child abuse is repulsive and destroys lives. At this point, that is not a proven fact in this situation.
Kevin Spacey's career will probably be ruined even if the story is patently untrue, and along with his career all the others at House of Cards both behind and in front of the camera are now unemployed.
Michael Dobey and all those that followed with facts and reason, thanks. I hope this turns out to be an ugly rumor, but if not, that will be the time for those involved to make intelligent choices - not those of us who have no 1st hand knowledge.
Sorry for the rant. Parts of this thread upset me.

What do you mean 'innocent until proven guilty'? He used 'I do not remember it happening but I am sorry if it did' as an excuse and then used it to come out. His statement was a complete PR smokescreen to detract from what he did. He tried to get out ahead of it and issued that lame statement. He has all but admitted it himself.

Did Netlix say it was cancelled because of the allegations against Spacey or is that made up? Even if they didn't say that, should Netflix renew a show that's likey a bust just because in the court of law (and not necessarily anywhere else), we are innocent until proven guilty?

What happenend to "innocent until proved guilty" ???
If they want to cancel the show because it is on the decline, fine. Don't use an accusation, and up til now it's nothing more, as an excuse.
