When will House Of Cards 7 be released?
House of Cards has run for 6 long seasons, all of which can be found on Netflix. Unfortuantely the show has been declared a wrap after season 6. This is in light of lead actor Kevin Spacey being fired from the show after many actors came out alleging him of sexual harassment when they were younger.
Anthony Rapp who worked with Spacey in his earlier movies was the first one to come out. Since the show relies heavily on Spacey and Frank Underwood creators felt that it would be too much of a hassle to replace him. Hence they came to a conclusion after season 5 that the next one would be the last.
