House of Cards to Resume Production in 2018 Without Star Kevin Spacey

"House of Cards" writers have been racing against the clock to find a new direction for the final season in light of Spacey's absence.

Kevin Spacey attends the "House Of Cards" Season 4 Premiere in Washington, DC on February 22, 2016. Production of "House of Cards" season 6 was suspended in October, following sexual assault allegations against star Kevin Spacey.

Netflix will resume production of House of Cards' sixth season early next year, and the final season of the popular show will not include Kevin Spacey.

Rapp talked to "Entertainment Tonight" Monday about the response he's gotten since coming forward, saying he's been "very surprised" by it all.

Monday's update - wildly speculated - follows the streaming giant's November 3 decision to sever ties with Spacey following mounting allegations of sexual harassment against the actor. Rapp was 14 years old at the time. After Rapp spoke out, others, including Harry Dreyfuss, also accused the actor of sexual harassment or assault. How will they write Spacey out of the script but keep the storyline going? Spacey will no longer be involved with the project after Netflix cut ties with the actor and producer.

"I'm very gratified to learn that the many folks who've been in limbo this past month will in fact have the chance to complete their work that had been interrupted", Rapp tweeted.

He further explained at the charity concert: "It was important to me that the ripple effects of everything that's gone on don't negatively affect too many people". The fifth season of House of Cards also, luckily, ended by hinting that Claire might be taking charge of things instead of Frank.
