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.

Regardless of what Kevin Spacey allegedly did, "House of Cards" was running on fumes anyhow. I'm glad it's finally being concluded. I'm sure Netflix would have kept renewing it to the point where it became unwatchable.

I'll be honest and say I really won't miss this show. But to the people saying they should wait for the facts: there are some things where just an accusation can ruin someone for life. When teachers are accused of any kind of inappropriate behavior, they can usually never teach again even after accusations are proven false. Even if things are proven false for Spacey, there will always be people who believe they're actually true and he got away with it because he's a star. It's totally possible producers may not want to deal with that.

Stars can be phedofile's too. Nothing is more disgusting than that. No matter who the person is that did it. A child carried around shame for no reason. For 30+ years! And just because the statue of limitations is up does not mean justice can't be served. Just not in a legal capacity. However this is just one worm in the can. There will be more. And for his show being cancelled that is a step in the right direction.

Hey Dart, yeah, how dare michael say he wants to wait til the facts all come out instead of just punishing someone based on a mere accusation. I dont doubt the validity of the claim, I just think the fact that he came forward finally after 31 years should be looked at and not condemn a person without knowing everything.
Before you accuse me of being sad my favorite show is being cancelled, I dont even watch the show.

He didn't rape the young man did he? And did he ever do it again? roll on someone like that? Why not wait till we know the whole story. BEFORE you cancel the show. If he is a person that jumps on young men and it was reoccurring then he's toast. But what if it wasn't reoccurring? Shouldn't we get the facts. ? They didn't even wait for the whole story. And calling me names because someone did something to you is rather sad.

Dart you sound so butt hurt, these are two different things. they should be treated differently.

Being sexually assaulted as a child can cause all sorts of irreparable damage. It's very good news that Spacey has been exposed, to keep more children from getting abused.

No... what's sad michael is that you're more concerned about your favorite show getting cancelled than a CHILD being sexually assaulted. Who cares if it was 31 years ago you moron.

that was 31 years ago and shouldn't they wait to find out if he has other allegations against him? Then he had a problem. What if he never did this? or such. has he a history of it? this is sad. To cancel a show without waiting for the facts.
