“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.
