Hindustan Times (Gurgaon) - City - - ENTERTAINMENT -

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.
