Netflix bosses are now working with House of Cards production company officials at Media Rights Capital to determine what to do with the show, but those close to the drama fear the series might now be axed for good.

In an interview with BuzzFeed, actor Anthony Rapp said he attended a party at Spacey's NY apartment in 1986, when he was 14. Rapp said the 26-year-old was holding him down tightly, but he was able to get away and left the apartment. One such person included actor and filmmaker Tony Montana, who told Radar Online that Spacey once groped him, grabbing his "whole package" while at a Los Angeles bar; Spacey then followed him into a restroom.

Late Thursday evening, eight people came forward anonymously to accuse Spacey of creating a "toxic" work environment on the set of House of Cards.

Netflix has cut ties with actor Kevin Spacey after a series of allegations of sexual misconduct. "I was in a state of shock", the anonymous staffer said. The report accused Spacey of allegedly targeting staffers who were typically young and male with nonconsensual touching and crude comments.

"A former camera assistant said that while he was never harassed by Spacey, the actor's inappropriate behaviour often took place in public". Spacey has also been dropped by his publicist and talent agency, CAA as allegations continue emerge.

"Spacey responded to Rapp's initial allegations, saying that he didn't remember the encounter and offered an apology".

Mexican actor Roberto Cavazos also claimed he fended off two "unpleasant" advances that "bordered on harassment" while at The Old Vic - the London theatre where Spacey was an artistic director from 2003-15. The Sun newspaper said the new allegation comes from a man who was in his early 20s at the time.

"Netflix will not be involved with any further production of House of Cards that includes Kevin Spacey", it said in a statement Friday. "We have also decided we will not be moving forward with the release of the film "Gore", which was in post-production, starring and produced by Kevin Spacey". In another blow to Spacey's wallet, a Dutch business forum canceled his headline appearance at their conference November 29 in Rotterdam.
