House of Cards to End After Upcoming Season

Kevin Spacey has now joined the ranks of the many powerful men who have been accused of sexual harassment in the wake of the dozens of allegations against Harvey Weinstein.

Deadline, however, reported that while Netflix and producers Media Rights Capital had been leaning toward ending the show for some time, key cast and creatives were only informed on Monday. House of Cards creator Beau Willimon called the Buzzfeed report 'deeply troubling, ' while others including actor Zachary Quinto, expressing disappointment in how Spacey, a notoriously private actor, made a decision to finally come out as openly gay.

That said, it stands to reason that Netflix would have done everything in its power to keep the show alive and well, even if Rapp hadn't come forward.

The show's seemingly quick unraveling came less than a day after a Sunday Buzzfeed article outlined Rapp's claims that a drunken Spacey tried to seduce the then-child actor in 1986.

Season 6 reportedly began filming in Maryland just two weeks ago, according to Entertainment Weekly.

We have also heard that Netflix's Spacey-starring film Gore about the acerbic author Gore Vidal may be on the chopping block now too. News that Spacey and director David Fincher were updating the project, an adaptation of a British series and Michael Dobbs novel of the same name, as a beltway drama for the USA sparked multiple bids from stateside programmers (including HBO) before finally going to Netflix with a straight-to-series order for two seasons at a price tag then estimated to be around $100 million.

I think when you point out a logline like that there's obviously a very unfortunate parallel to the circumstances going on in Mr.

Spacey is next set to appear in Ridley Scott's "All the Money in the World". They face a very real risk that the publicity firestorm that this has ignited would completely overshadow any such production. As The Daily Beast " s Ira Madison notes in a must-read editorial, "There's never truly a wrong time to come out and I'd never begrudge anyone for accepting their sexuality. I guess it really relies on people coming forward, and sometimes that's very hard. And the truth is there's probably nothing that will be foolproof. The streaming giant also said it was "deeply troubled" by the allegations. "I was aware that he was trying to get with me sexually". That said, I take reports of such behaviour seriously and this is no exception.
