London [UK], November 4 (ANI): It seems like Frank Underwood might really be out of the White House.

According to The Mirror, 'House of Cards' producers are exploring several options to kill off Spacey's character, the villainous Frank Underwood.

That reportedly means the sixth and final season of Netflix's Emmy-winning political drama would focus on Underwood's wife Clair, played by Robin Wright.

Season six was almost entirely written before 'Star Trek' actor Anthony Rapp went public with allegations that Spacey made unwanted sexual advances toward him in 1986.

Just few hours ago, in a new statement issued by the streaming giant Netflix, they said that they "will not be involved with any further production of 'House of Cards' that includes Kevin Spacey."

A spokesperson from the streaming service also shared that they will not be moving forward with the release of their movie 'Gore', which also stars Spacey.

As a response to the report, Spacey tweeted a statement saying he didn't remember Rapp's alleged incident and apologising "for what would have been deeply inappropriate drunken behaviour."

Meanwhile, CNN has reported that eight anonymous employees and former employees from the 'House of Cards' set have come forward with claims about the actor's alleged "predatory" behaviour.

A former production assistant claimed Spacey sexually assaulted him during one of series' early seasons

Spacey's then-publicist said the actor was "taking the time necessary to seek evaluation and treatment" and that "no other information will be available at this time." (ANI)
