Netflix’s first original series House of Cards has been on hold ever since sexual abuse allegations surfaced against lead actor Kevin Spacey, but today, Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos confirmed that the service plans to move forward with the final season of the series. The executive made the comments during the UBS Global Media and Communications Conference in New York.
According to Variety, the final season of House of Cards will include eight episodes (previous seasons have been 13 episodes long), and will focus on Robin Wright’s character Claire Underwood. Spacey will not be involved, as Netflix announced last month that it would no longer be working with him. Production will resume in January.
