In the wake of sexual allegations against House of Cards star Kevin Spacey, the creative minds behind the award-winning political drama decided to move ahead without him onboard. Earlier today, Netflix released a short teaser video for the final season of House of Cards. In only 19-seconds, the biggest speculation about the show was unraveled — Is Frank Underwood (played on screen by Kevin Spacey) is finally dead?
The released House of Cards season 6's teaser confirms that Frank Underwood was killed offscreen and that's how the show will put its entire focus on Claire Underwood (Robin Wright).
The teaser video starts by showing Claire standing and directing addressing Francis and saying, "I tell you this though Francis when they bury me, it won't be in my backyard. And when they pay their respects...they'll have to wait in line." As Claire walks out from the frame, the shot directing cuts to the graves of Calvin T. Underwood and Francis Underwood.
Check out the teaser video:
After the news broke, fans of American political drama series started to show their disdain towards Kevin Spacey and his casting in the show. In the light of the allegations, several other employees of House of Cards accused Kevin Spacey of inappropriate behavior. When the reports of sexual allegation surface, the production of first two episodes of House of Cards season six was already done but Netflix did not take the allegations lightly.
After several backlashes and fans outrage, the online streaming service provider decided to postpone the release of House of Cards season 6 and asked the staff to rewrite the entire season with keeping Frank Underwood out of the picture.
The released teaser somehow shows that the upcoming season will hit directly from the death of Frank Underwood and how his wife and now the President of the United States of America will right his wrongs.
House of Cards season 6 is scheduled to stream on Netflix on November 2, 2018.
