Last month, Netflix stopped production of House of Cards' sixth season and severed its relationship with Spacey after several people - including Star Trek: Discovery actor Anthony Rapp - accused the Oscar victor of sexual misconduct. Rapp alleged that Spacey, then 26, laid "down on top" of him in a bedroom and "was trying to seduce" him.
"House of Cards" writers have been racing against the clock to find a new direction for the final season in light of Spacey's absence.
"I can bring you news today because we found an arrangement to produce a sixth season of House of Cards".
"House of Cards" was axed after Kevin Spacey was hit with a wave of sexual harassment allegations, as well as claims that he had sex with minors. Rapp said. "I think all of this is an important step to dismantle the machinery that allowed this sort of thing to continue".
In late October, the Broadway actor Anthony Rapp told BuzzFeed that Spacey had tried to sexually assault him in 1986, when Rapp was 14; Spacey apologized for what he described as "deeply inappropriate drunken behaviour". How will they write Spacey out of the script but keep the storyline going?
Netflix announced the show's sixth season would be its last days after the first round of allegations surfaced.
"I'm very gratified to learn that the many folks who've been in limbo this past month will in fact have the chance to complete their work that had been interrupted". "We're excited for the 370 people who make "House of Cards" and have done the best work of their lives on that show; for the 2,000 people in Baltimore who have come to depend on that show for their jobs".
