After a months-long abandonment after star and exec producer, Spacey was sacked following the sexual wrongdoing charges, production on the eight-episode sixth and final season resumes on Wednesday. While the specifics of their roles are mostly unknown, what is known is that the two will be playing siblings. It was later announced that the star was sacked from the series, with Season 6 slated to be the show's final season, as production shut down at the end of October. Spacey and Wright won Golden Globe Awards for their performances, and the show was nominated in several major Emmy categories.

Robin Wright will now lead the series as Claire Underwood, the wife of Spacey's Frank, who became president in the fifth season.
Production halted on October 31 after actor Anthony Rapp told BuzzFeed in an interview that Spacey made a sexual advance toward him at a party in 1986 when Rapp was 14 years old.
In November, Netflix severed ties with the disgraced actor, but said that they would work with the production company to "evaluate a creative path forward" for the show.
This is the first news in a while related to Season 6 of Netflix's first original series.
Frank was likely to be killed off anyway as the character In the Michael Dobbs book on which the show is based also dies.
At the end of season four, we saw that Tom Hammerschmidt, the former editor of The Washington Herald, was getting closer and closer to unveiling some of Frank Underwood's past corruptions.
