In the wake of the sexual assault allegations surround Kevin Spacey, Netflix took the decision to fire the actor from its hit series House of Cards.
While it first seemed like the show wouldn’t return, the producers have instead made a dramatic plot shift and put Claire Underwood (played by Robin Wright) in the lead role as president of the United States, simply killing off her husband Frank.
That doesn’t mean the show is going to be any less tense and dramatic though, as the pressure is already pilling up on Claire and her husband’s dark past is fast catching up with her. It will also breathe some fresh life into the series, which has already been running for five seasons and, according to some fans, was beginning to stagnate.
House of Cards season 6 premieres November 2, 2018 on Netflix.
