Production for next season of House of Cards to resume soon
House of Cards’ makers will soon resume production for the sixth and final season of the sitcom. The new season of the show was on a hiatus after Kevin Spacey was hit with several sexual harassment allegations, leading to Netflix and Media Rights Capital (MRC) to temporarily shut down the production.
According to a letter sent by MRC to the Netflix series’ cast and crew, the company’s Senior Vice-President Pauline Micelli indicated that talks about continuing the series with the streaming giant are on, reports aceshowbiz.com.
The letter read: “We continue to work with Netflix with the hope of resuming production soon. As we continue these discussions, we have determined together that the crew will be paid for an additional two week hiatus beginning on November 27 and continuing through December 8.”
Micelli hoped “the entire crew will be able to reconvene when production resumes”. However, the company maintained that they’ll understand if crew members find other work in the interim.
“Cast and other union members who are not actively working will be paid in accordance with applicable union guidelines through this period. These last two months have tested and tried all of us in ways none of us could have foreseen. The one thing we have learned throughout this process is that this production is bigger than just one person and we could not be more proud to be associated with one of the most loyal and talented production cast and crews in this business,” Micelli added.
It was earlier reported that House of Cards writers were considering to kill off Spacey’s character, Frank Underwood.
The new season of the show House of Cards had been put on hold following the news of Kevin Spacey’s sexual misconduct
