The final season of House of Cards will start production in 2018 without Kevin Spacey, Netflix has said.

Ted Sarandos, Netflix's chief content officer, made the announcement during an interview with UBS during an annual media and communications conference. It will be an eight-episode season. As many fans had hoped, the second Underwood in the pair, Claire, will take the show spotlight, bringing it to the finale that may itself snowball into a spin-off series from the streaming company. "We were really excited we could get to an agreement... for the conclusion of the show", Sarandos said at UBS's Global Media and Communications Conference in NY.

Killing off Spacey's character would actually follow the original United Kingdom version of House of Cards, since the Frank Underwood of that series (named Francis Urquhart) was assassinated in the final chapter of the trilogy, The Final Cut.

Netflix has now confirmed it will begin production of the final season and that Robin Wright will star in the eight episode arc.

The hit series, which focuses on political dealmaking in Washington, D.C., has provided 2,000 jobs to people in the Baltimore area where it is shot, Variety reported.

Among accusations that have been directed against Spacey in recent weeks were those of several House of Cards workers, who accused him of creating a "toxic" working environment and behaving like a "sexual predator".

All of Spacey's scenes were also erased from the upcoming film All the Money in the World, in light of the allegations made against Spacey.

Following Rapp's allegation, Spacey said in a post on Twitter he does not remember the alleged incident.
