  • Netflix to end Cards amid Spacey claims

"As previously scheduled, Kevin Spacey is not working on set at this time".

Issuing a joint statement on Monday October 30, Netflix and Media Rights Capital confirmed that Spacey was not now on the House of Cards set - quietly begging the question of if he will ever return to it. Netflix is reportedly weighing different concepts for a spinoff of the hit show.

Netflix announced yesterday (Oct. 30) that House of Cards will conclude after the upcoming sixth season, which is now in production in Baltimore.

Don't let yourself, your kids be tricked this Halloween
Place pets in a crate or room while trick-or-treaters are out so that the animal may not be provoked or tempted to bite. Sheriff Whittington also reminds residents that sex offenders are not allowed to participate in Halloween activities.

The streaming service announced that it was "deeply troubled" by the allegations made by Star Trek actor Anthony Rapp, who claimed that Spacey had made "sexual advances" towards him back in 1986 when he was just 14-years-old.

The Academy said in a statement: "The International Academy has announced today that in light of recent events it will not honour Kevin Spacey with the 2017 International Emmy Founders Award". Speaking to Buzzfeed News, Rapp said Spacey (then 26) invited him to his apartment for a party.

"Coming out stories should not be used to deflect from allegations of sexual assault", many celebrities tweeted on their official pages. Spacey said he did not remember the encounter, but was "beyond horrified" to hear Rapp's account. "I created a House of Cards 30 years ago and up to this point it has been an exhilarating and totally joyous journey", Dobbs told Deadline.

Nationals Hire Cubs Bench Coach Dave Martinez To Replace Dusty Baker
While the team made it to the postseason both years with Baker as manager, it never moved beyond the first round of the playoffs. A formal announcement isn't likely to come until Monday at the earliest, possibly not until after the World Series ends.

But rather than tempering an uproar over the allegation, Spacey's combination of an apology with a statement going public about his sexual orientation stirred a backlash against the actor as Hollywood found itself embroiled in yet another sex scandal.

House of Cards, which began in 2013, has been nominated for 33 Emmy awards and eight Golden Globe awards.

He went on to say that Rapp's accusation "encouraged me to address other things about my life", and that "I know that there are stories out there about me".
