In news that should shock nobody, production is set to officially resume on Netflix’s House Of Cards without the accused sexual predator Kevin Spacey. That means the last season will be all about Robin Wright. In related news, I vote we rename the show House Of Icy Bobs And Pencil Skirts.
Actually, that could also be the name of any given documentary on Vogue, so I guess we can keep the name as-is. The Hollywood Reporter reports the show will come back with a shorter-than-usual eight-episode season to tie up loose ends (it was originally expected to be 13 episodes). There has been speculation over whether or not there is going to be a spin-off of the show, as a Frank Underwood-less season seems to lend a lot of time to develop new character lines.
As you know, Anthony Rapp came forward with a story accusing Kevin of assaulting him when he was only 14 and Kevin was 26. A former Boston newscaster then accused Kevin of molesting her 18-year-old son on Nantucket in the summer of 2016. THEN, London’s Old Vic theater came forward saying they got 20 complaints about Kevin after they opened a tip line to see if he had done anything while serving as artistic director of the place from 2004 to 2015. Kevin’s career has since gone the way of the Hindenburg. Netflix put House of Cards on a hiatus, but decided not to toss the whole thing out.
Hopefully this will get those House Of Cards freakish fans off poor Anthony’s Instagram since their show is coming back and a Frank-less show is guaranteed to be better than anything put forth for the last five seasons. Although, part of me was just hoping Christopher Plummer would make a career of taking over for all of Kevin’s old roles. Christopher as J. Paul Getty! Christopher as Frank Underwood!
