Netflix Pursuing Spinoff Of ‘House Of Cards’ Amid Spacey Controversy

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Netflix is exploring a “House of Cards” spinoff as the show’s final season nears amid controversy surrounding star Kevin Spacey.

The streaming channel, which reportedly is weighing different concepts for the spinoff, said Monday that the upcoming sixth season will be the last for “House of Cards.”

The announcement of the Emmy-winning political satire’s end came amid fallout from Spacey’s alleged sexual advances toward a 14-year-old actor in the 1980s. But Netflix had already decided to end the show and was pursuing a spinoff.

Spacey has apologized for the incident which he said he doesn’t recall but would have stemmed from “drunken behavior.” He also spoke publicly for the first time about being gay.

The final “House of Cards” episodes are in production, with a release date yet to be announced.

  1. Maybe someone will lick or suck on something that tastes like Vegemite for a part in the spin-off. And then make a big deal out of it years from now, instead of going to HR right away like when an ugly co-worker with a forklift job asks a co-worker out on a date.
