According to Deadline, shooting of the sixth season of "house of cards" has been suspended indefinitely. Cast and crew knew about the shutdown this morning, October 31.

In a series of tweets, the Netflix account reproduced the joint statement released to Deadline, saying that both Media Rights Capital and the streaming service decided to suspend the production until further notice, so it could give time to review the current situation and to address any concerns of the cast and crew.

On Monday, both Netflix and MRC only went to the shooting sets to assure cast and crew that they were safe.

The main reason for the shutdown is the allegations of unwanted sexual advances of Kevin Spacey, the lead actor of the political drama, toward a 14-year-old Anthony Rapp, almost 30 years ago.

Final season

Netflix confirmed yesterday, October 30, that the sixth season of "House of Cards" would be the series last.

As stated by The Hollywood Reporter, it has a possibility that the streaming service would like to have a spin-off show from the political drama. According to Variety, three ideas are being discussed by the company.

One would follow Doug Stamper (Michael Kelly), with the script being penned by Eric Roth, one of the produces of the four season of the series. Another idea is a story revolving around the journalists and bloggers who have tried to expose the Underwood's criminal behavior. The third possibility is about the Wall Street power.

If the spin-off succeeds, it would be the first one of a Netflix original series since it had been released as a streaming company.

Developed by Spacey and David Fincher, "House of Cards" marked the beginning of Netflix as an original programming developer.

Spacey's scandal

On October 29, Anthony Rapp ("Star Trek: Discovery") told, in an interview with BuzzFeed News, that, when he was 14 years old, Kevin Spacey, then with 26 years old, made a move on him.

According to Rapp, Spacey even carried him like a bride to a bed in his home.

Yesterday, October 30, Spacey tweeted a statement about the subject apologizing for his "inappropriate drunken behavior" and came out as gay. However, the apology and the admission were not well received by the Hollywood Industry, as many of them believed Spacey chose the wrong moment to talk about his sexuality, at the same time he wanted to minimize a situation that happened 30 years ago.

The Oscar-winning actor has not made a new statement so far.
