After originally announcing they were cancelling House of Cards following the allegations of sexual misconduct against its star Kevin Spacey, Netflix recently confirmed that the popular political drama will have a sixth without Frank Underwood.
And now, two new cast members—both Oscar nominees—have joined the political thriller for its final season.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Diane Lane and Greg Kinnear have joined House Of Cards now that production has resumed.
The streaming giant is keeping details about the new season under wraps, but we do know that Lane and Kinnear will play siblings.
“We’re really excited about bringing some closure to the show for fans,” Ted Sarandos, Netflix’s chief content officer, said in December.
Sarandos added that he was thrilled to be able to continue employing the team of 370 people who directly work on the show and for “the 2,000 people in Baltimore”, where the series is shot, who have indirect jobs working on House of Cards.
The question, though, is how writers will explain Spacey’s exit. With no air date named as yet, we’ll have to wait to find out.
