The price of doing business with predators is high. A new Netflix earnings report from the end of 2017 reveals that the streaming giant took a staggering $39 million write-down in disbanding the relationship with Hollywood abuser Kevin Spacey, both in shortening the final House of Cards season and shelving the actor’s Gore Vidal biopic.
It didn’t take long for Netflix and House of Cards to distance themselves from star Kevin Spacey in the wake of pedophilia accusations from actor Adam Rapp. Producers placed Spacey on leave with intent to rewrite House of Cards’ final season around Robin Wright’s Claire, but the process of severing the toxic star may be more costly and complicated than we thought.
In what’s either the best or worst timing possible, Netflix’s House of Cards is about to crumble. The Kevin Spacey-Robin Wright political drama is confirmed to return for a sixth and final season, bringing the Underwoods’ reign to a close.
For those of you who are already invested in the Netflix original series, 'House of Cards,' you probably have watched this trailer upwards of 1,000 times by now. But have you picked up on everything that it implies?
Netflix's 'House of Cards' seemed for a time that it might fold after two seasons, but Vice President Underwood has officially risen to the challenge. The political drama has released its first season 3 teaser, setting a February premiere date for Frank and Claire's presidential ascent, both literally, and figuratively.
