Netflix suspends production on House of Cards' sixth season

Netflix has announced that it has suspended production on Kevin Spacey-starrer House of Cards' sixth season after the actor was accused of an unpleasant sexual advances yet again, this time by Mexican actor Roberto Cavazos.

The company made an announcement on its official Twitter page, which can be seen below:

Original story:

Yesterday, Kevin Spacey was accused by Anthony Rapp of Star Trek: Discovery of sexually assaulting him when he was just 14. Not long after, Spacey himself came forth, saying that he didn't remember the encounter.

And if that wasn't enough, he even went ahead to announce himself as a gay man, an act which was thoroughly bashed by various celebrities as a cheap attempt to change the topic.

Now, 24 hours later, the fallout continues. Netflix, the streaming service that produces and hosts 'House of Cards', starring Kevin Spacey in the lead role, has announced that the series will be cancelled after the upcoming sixth season, TV Line reports.

In a joint statement, Netflix and Media Rights Capital issued the following statement saying they were "deeply troubled" regarding the allegations. “In response to last night’s revelations, executives from both of our companies arrived in Baltimore this afternoon to meet with our cast and crew to ensure that they continue to feel safe and supported," the statement said, adding that Spacey was "not working on set at this time.”

What becomes of Kevin Spacey's future projects following the accusations remains to be seen.
