It is in Variety that Netflix is expressed through the voice of Ted Sarandos, head of content of the platform.

Monday's update - wildly speculated - follows the streaming giant's November 3 decision to sever ties with Spacey following mounting allegations of sexual harassment against the actor. We now know, via The Hollywood Reporter, that the final season will not only star Wright and write out Spacey in a unusual case of life imitating art, but that the sixth season will be a slim eight episodes, with production set to start in early 2018.

On the heels of numerous allegations of sexual misconduct against Kevin Spacey, which led to the actor being fired from the series, Netflix announced on Monday that the final season of "House of Cards" would continue with Robin Wright leading the way as new president Claire Underwood.

"We are excited to bring closure to fans", Sarandos said at a USB conference Monday morning.

Netflix has made a decision to resume filming on House of Cards. In the Michael Dobbs book that inspired the Netflix series, Frank's character dies.

It's nearly certain that the focus of the show will now be put on Robin Wright, who plays Claire, the wife of Kevin Spacey's character, Frank Underwood.

On Nov. 26, Media Rights Capital announced that it had extended its production hiatus for another two weeks until December 8. How will they write Spacey out of the script but keep the storyline going? The final season was originally supposed to run 13 episodes.

House of Cards was too big of a hit to simply bail out on it, so the team has clearly had to make adjustments.

A source familiar with the decision told CNN Monday that Netflix had chose to restart production without Spacey.
