The final season of the political drama will begin streaming on November 2.
The news was announced via the series’ official Twitter alongside an image of Robin Wright looking fierce in a long-sleeve navy blue dress, her right-hand grips her seat with spilling blood over the chair.
The show’s sixth and final season will feature Wright’s character, Claire Underwood as POTUS as Kevin Spacey, who played Frank Underwood, exited the production following sexual conduct allegations. Coincidentally, season five ended with Frank stepping down as President following a series of scandals.
Just last month Cindy Holland, Netflix’s Vice President of Original Series said of HOC’s final season that she was “proud” of what the cast and crew had accomplished despite the firing of the series’ lead. ”It’s a fitting end. We had always planned for season six to be the final season,” she said. “I’m very proud of what Robin [Wright did].”
Back in May, Wright, who will take over as the new commander-in-chief, shared a promo image on social media in celebration of the production wrapping on the final season. She wrote, “As of last Friday, we finished filming the final season of @houseofcards. Working with our cast and crew has been an absolute joy. We became a family and I will miss you all and the nonstop laughs! Thank you @netflix & MRC for all of your support through the years!!”
Returning cast members include Michael Kelly, Jayne Atkinson, Patricia Clarkson, Constance Zimmer, Derek Cecil, Campbell Scott, and Boris McGiver. New additions Diane Lane, Cody Fern, and Greg Kinnear will round up the cast.
