After some deliberation on the status of House of Cards (HOC) season six, Netflix content chief Ted Sarandos has confirmed that production will go on for the final season.

Variety reported last month that "House of Cards" producers were contemplating killing off Spacey's character - the devious political animal Frank Underwood - to focus on Wright's Claire Underwood as a way to salvage season 6.

When the news of Kevin's firing hit the mainstream press, Rapp wrote on Twitter that he was "very gratified" to learn that the people who worked on House Of Cards can continue their work. "We will continue to work with [producer Media Rights Capital] during this hiatus time to evaluate our path forward as it relates to the show".
