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.

In the less than a week since Kevin Spacey was first accused of sexual misconduct with a 14-year-old Anthony Rapp back in 1986, numerous men have come forward to disclose their own encounters with the actor, House of Cards has been canceled and his agent and publicist have both distanced themselves from the two-time Oscar victor.

If the show is not able to continue production, Netflix will be exploring options of a possible spinoff of House of Cards.

A young production assistant who won't reveal his name told CNN Spacey exhibited unwanted sexual behavior toward him during those first years of filming. "We will continue to work with MRC during this hiatus time to evaluate our path forward as it relates to the production, and have nothing further to share at this time".

Spacey, who has been dumped by his publicist and agents at CAA, is seeking "evaluation and treatment" in the wake of the sexual abuse allegations against him.

Police spotted the vehicle and followed it, eventually stopping Ostrem in his Mitsubishi Mirage and taking him into custody. He recounted that "the employees started screaming and the customers started screaming" as people began to flee the store.


"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.

Netflix had already announced that the upcoming sixth season of the show, which had been due to air in 2018, would be its last.

And MRC is "deeply troubled" by the allegations and have implemented "an anonymous complaint hotline, crisis counselors, and sexual harassment legal advisors for the crew".

Thirty years ago, Spacey was a 27-year-old actor in NY. "It wouldn't surprise me if there were similar numbers to Weinstein's". "I witnessed him groping men many times in all sorts of different situations", one told The Guardian newspaper. In a statement, the Old Vic expressed "deep dismay" at the sexual assault allegations and said "inappropriate behavior by anyone working at The Old Vic is completely unacceptable".

"Netflix is not aware of any other incidents involving Kevin Spacey on-set", the company said in a statement to CNN.
