“The Wrong Saga Of Kevin Spacey” continues, and many industry trades are reporting that Netflix has officially severed all ties with Kevin Spacey, who stands accused of having sexually harassed and/or sexually assaulted a whole bunch of dudes (two of them reportedly 14 at the time). What this means for House of Cards is that, if they even complete and air their final season, you’re more likely to see Kate Mara’s thrown-in-front-of-a-subway-train character magically come back to life than any trace of Kevin’s President Frank Underwood. He’s been officially “suspended” from the show, and they’ve canceled a planned Gore Vidal bio-pic with him. Yet, mom’s boyfriend from hell Woody Allen and Scientology’s accused rapist Danny Masterson are still lurking about on Netflix. Hmmm.
With yesterday’s announcement that the sixth season of House of Cards will be its final season, you figured Netflix was cool with putting their cash cow to pasture as long as it disassociated them with the “deeply troubling“ Kevin Spacey. But lo’ – only that last part was correct. Variety says that Netflix and producer Media Capital are in the early stages of developing “multiple ideas for a potential spinoff.” Don’t be silly – Netflix wouldn’t end House of Cards without a back-up plan. There’s no word yet on whether or not it will be a solo series focusing on FLOTUS Claire Underwood taking up child sexual abuse as her favorite cause.
The real tale as old as time around kids cartoons is the one where countless smartass illustrators take out frustrations/get some LOLs by drawing inappropriate shit in your three-year-old’s favorite show. So it should not come as a shock that a big ol’ illustrated sausage found its way into Maya the Bee. And Maya’s bosses at Netflix ain’t happy about it.
Amy Schumer can let out a hardy “I’m rich, biatch!” now, because she went to Netflix and told them she was worth as much as Dave Chappelle and Chris Rock and wasn’t laughed out of the room.
A group of hackers called “thedarkoverlord” (*eye roll*) has reportedly stolen the upcoming fifth season of Orange Is The New Black. “thedarkoverlord” (I don’t have to keep inserting *eye roll* here, right?) claimed to have already uploaded ten out of thirteen episodes to an illegal file sharing service. (Remember when we all stole songs with Napster and told ourselves that it wasn’t thievery and just free shit, since it wasn’t physical media?) Season five of OITNB is supposed to premiere on Netflix on June 9.
