The sixth and final season of House of Cards, the hit Netflix series thrown into crisis by sexual assault allegations against Kevin Spacey, is to resume production early next year without its star, an industry source told AFP yesterday.

The eight-episode season will focus on co-star Robin Wright.

"We are excited to bring closure to fans", Sarandos said at a USB conference.

House of Cards is produced by Media Rights Capital.

Production on the eight-episode sixth season had been hold due to allegations of sexual misconduct made against Spacey. Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos said the show will enter production next year, with Robin Wright in the lead.

Sarandos added he was thrilled to have been able to reach the deal for the 370 people who directly work on the popular series and "the 2,000 people in Baltimore" who have jobs working for "HOC".

Claire Underwood has moved center stage since "House of Cards" premiered in 2013, going from the wife of Spacey's congressman to first lady and then vice president.

Netflix had also worked with Spacey on a movie in which the actor stars as the late writer Gore Vidal.

Last week MRC producers had informed "House of Cards" cast and crew that the hiatus on season 6 would be extended through December 8 and that the crew will continue to be paid during the break.

Production on "House of Cards" remains suspended through the end of the year.

Wright's character, Claire Underwood, finished season five by winning election as the first US female president after wresting power from her husband.

Spacey is now under criminal investigation in Nantucket, Mass., in connection with an allegation that he groped a 19-year-old man in a bar in the summer of 2016.
