Netflix also announced it would not be be moving forward with the film, Gore, which was in post-production and was produced by and starring Spacey.

After Rapp's confession, 46, various other men came forward to accuse Spacey of sexual harassment and misconduct. And when the cast and crew return to set in 2018, they'll be shooting just eight episodes - a significant cut from the 13 episodes that were included in season 5.

"It will star Robin Wright, and we're really excited about bringing some closure to the show for fans", Sarandos reportedly said.

He added that the agreement would benefit the 2,000 people in Baltimore who have worked on the show.

Actor Anthony Rapp made the initial allegations, saying Spacey made unwanted moves on him in his NY apartment in the 1986, when Rapp was a 14-year-old stage actor.

The happy HoC news was confirmed by Netflix exec Ted Sarandos Monday at a media conference in NYC. In addition, Netflix will ramp up local-language productions, targeting 30 worldwide scripted series around the world in 2018. Last week, MRC announced that the hiatus would continue until December 8 amid an ongoing investigation into the Spacey allegations. A number of options were posed-including killing off Spacey's Frank Underwood-but it marked a hard task as Spacey was the lead of the Netflix series.

Sarandos also said Season 6 would provide a "good creative conclusion" to the series.

It was the first major original Netflix show.
