AND THAT’S A WRAP
“Francis is dead.” And so says fictional U.S. President Claire Underwood regarding her husband Frank Underwood, also a fictional president, now deceased.
This is all according to a new one-minute preview released Thursday by the makers of “House of Cards,” the Netflix political series starring actors Robin Wright and Kevin Spacey, who left the show following accusations of sexual misconduct in 2017. The sixth and final season of the critically praised series begins on Nov. 2. Mr. Spacey initially played the president, Ms. Wright the first lady. Their roles have been reversed in the last eight episodes, and Mr. Spacey’s character is gone.
“The reign of the middle-aged white man is over,” murmurs one unseen character in the preview.
