Netflix sets premiere date for final season 'House of Cards'

Netflix sets premiere date for final season 'House of Cards'

The promo image marks the first in the series' five-year history that a woman has been seated on the Lincoln Memorial-styled stone chair, officially marking the drastic changes to come in the upcoming season.

At the conclusion of House of Cards season 5, Kevin Spacey's evil President Frank Underwood resigned the presidency, allowing his wife and Vice President Claire Underwood (Wright) to assume the office.

A new promo poster for House of Cards proves that Robin Wright is taking the lead on the popular Netflix original series.

For Robin Wright, longtime star of Netflix's House of Cards remake, the show's sixth and final season is #MyTurn.

Media reports also suggest Saudi Arabia may cancel thousands of scholarships for students attending school in Canada. The arrests last week brought criticism from the Canadian government.

Spacey didn't deny Rapp's allegations, but instead came out as gay in a statement responding to the accusation. The streaming platform also announced at the time its decision to not move forward with Gore, a film starring and produced by Kevin Spacey that was already in post-production. Production was shut down, Spacey was sacked as the lead actor (and as a producer), and eight new episodes for the now-final season had to be hastily written with Robin Wright as the lead. Before they were the streaming giant we know them as today, Netflix was just beginning to enter into the production game. "We never socialized outside of work". Production of the series in Maryland wrapped in May.

House of Cards executive producers are Melissa James Gibson, Frank Pugliese, Robin Wright, David Fincher, Joshua Donen, Dana Brunetti, Eric Roth, Michael Dobbs and Andrew Davies.

A tweet announcing the November 2 premiere date - timely, just a few short days before Election Day - also features a grim, new poster and a wholly appropriate hashtag: #MyTurn.
