Netflix already announced Season 6 of House of Cards will be its last, but has also since suspended production on that season indefinitely.

Media Rights Capital, the film and TV studio behind House of Cards, followed up with its own statement. Now speaking to CNN, the workers (who asked to remain anonymous out of fear of professional repercussions) described Spacey's behaviour on the House of Cards set as "predatory", highlighting instances of non-consensual touching and crude comments - particularly targeting young male staffers. We will continue to work with MRC during this hiatus time to evaluate our path forward as it relates to the show.

British police confirmed Friday that they had opened an investigation into an allegation of sexual assault from a man in 2008, although officers never identify the subject of an inquiry unless and until they are charged.

"We have also decided we will not be moving forward with the release of the film "Gore", which was in post-production, starring and produced by Kevin Spacey." the statement concludes. They don't want the show to be canceled; instead, they want season six to begin with Wright's character, Claire Underwood, explaining that her husband has died and she's taking over the White House.

Variety is reporting that Spacey's publicist and talent agency have also severed ties with Spacey who is now seeking treatment.

News that the production of the show's sixth season was put on a halt on Tuesday.

MRC said it was "deeply troubled" by the latest allegations, had implemented a complaint hotline and offered crisis counsellors and legal advisors to the crew, and would "thoroughly investigate" all claims formally brought to its attention.

"Spacey responded to Rapp's initial allegations, saying that he didn't remember the encounter and offered an apology". When the staffer told Spacey he wasn't comfortable with the situation, he said Spacey became "visibly flustered" and left the set for the rest of the day.

The Old Vic theater, where Spacey served as artistic director between 2004 and 2015, distanced itself from the actor. Rapp said he was inspired to come forward in the wake of allegations swirling around Harvey Weinstein.
