Final ‘House Of Cards’ Season Will Go Forward With Robin Wright As Its Lead

It’ s Claire’ s turn.

Netflix will move forward with the sixth and final season of “ House of Cards , ” even after firing star Kevin Spacey .

Robin Wright , who plays newly inaugurated President Claire Underwood, will take over the political drama’ s lead role. Conveniently enough, the fifth season of the show  ended with Wright’ s character looking into the camera and declaring, “ My turn . ”    

“ We were really excited we could get to an agreement” to provide “ closure of the show for fans, ” Ted Sarandos, Netflix’ s chief content officer,   said Monday while confirming the news .

The final season is expected to consist of eight episodes, compared to the 13 episodes of earlier seasons.   It’ s unclear how Spacey’ s character, Frank Underwood, will be written out of the show.

In October, “ Star Trek: Discovery” actor Anthony Rapp accused Spacey of sexually harassing him   at a party in 1986 ,   when Rapp was 14 years old and Spacey was 26. Since then,   about 30 others have come forward   with misconduct allegations against Spacey.
