Netflix Cuts All Ties with Kevin Spacey

The streaming company suspended production earlier this week of the upcoming sixth and final season of the political intrigue drama, in which Spacey plays United States president Frank Underwood.

"While we continue the ongoing investigation into the serious allegations concerning Kevin Spacey's behaviour on the set of House of Cards, he has been suspended, effective immediately", MRC said in a statement. It has been a tense situation for Netflix and Media Rights Capital, as they look at bringing a swift close to "House of Cards" to deal with the situation that has left them "deeply troubled".

Within days after Kevin Spacey's big reveal, Netflix announced they are suspending House of Cards.

Its star Kevin Spacey, who plays a monstrously corrupt American president, has been accused of sexually abusing a series of young men working on the show. CNN reported on Thursday that eight current and former employees of House of Cards, who were not identified, alleged sexual misconduct against Spacey.

"We will continue to work with MRC during this hiatus time to evaluate our path forward as it relates to the show", the Netflix statement said.

Reuters was unable to independently confirm any of the accusations.

"We have also decided we will not be moving forward with the release of Gore, which was in post-production, starring and produced by Kevin Spacey", the streaming service has said.

MRC meanwhile said that it had handled an incident in 2012 around a "shared a complaint about a specific remark and gesture made by Kevin Spacey" from a crew member, which resulted in Spacey going to "training".

In the show, Spacey plays villainous Francis Underwood and it is thought the writers could instead focus on his equally villainous wife Claire Underwood, played by Robin Wright.

After the Netflix statement came out, the trade magazine reported that Spacey has been suspended from the political drama.
