Production was already underway on the sixth season of “House of Cards” when star Kevin Spacey became embroiled in scandal after numerous allegations of sexual misconduct. After Netflix undertook its own internal investigation, the decision was made to fire the show’s Emmy-winning star, which left the fate of the show up in the air.
The decision was subsequently made to complete the story — sans Spacey, of course — with a final season that would focus on Robin Wright’s character, Claire Underwood. Now, we have our first look at the long-awaited season after Netflix released a pair of photos from the set.
The upcoming season will feature the addition of Oscar nominees Diane Lane and Greg Kinnear to the cast, along with new arrival Cody Fern.
Returning for the final season are Michael Kelly, Jayne Atkinson, Patricia Clarkson, Constance Zimmer, Derek Cecil, Campbell Scott, and Boris McGiver.
No return date for the final season has been announced but Netflix says it will debut sometime later this year. You can check out a trailer for the upcoming season below:
