'House of Cards': Netflix announces November premiere date for sixth and final season

The sixth and final season of 'House of Cards' will have eight episodes and Robin Wright will be starring as President Claire Underwood

It's finally here! Netflix announced on August 7 that the sixth and final season of 'House of Cards' will air on November 2. The makers of the show were forced to make some changes after the last season as Kevin Spacey, who plays one of the lead characters on the show, faced sexual assault allegations and had to be let go. The media giant announced last year that Robin Wright will be starring in the final season, which is said to comprise eight episodes, as President Claire Underwood.



Spacey had played her husband Frank Underwood on the show, a ruthless politician who will do anything to get to the top of the political scene in Washington D.C. He was dropped from the series in November last year after all the allegations of sexual assault put a halt to his acting career.

The show was briefly suspended due to the allegations against Spacey. However, Netflix and the production company, Media Rights Capital, later announced that season 6 would be the final one with just eight episodes. 

Production for the final season wrapped up in May this year in Maryland and eager fans will get to see Wright sit in the Oval Office very soon. More information on the award-winning series can be found here.
