Netflix hit House of Cards may be coming to an end, it won’t be going out without a bang.
Now that Kevin Spacey has been fired after several sexual misconduct allegations, HuffPost reports that the show will conclude with a brand-new president: Claire Underwood. That’s right — co-star Robin Wright will be ‘inaugurated’ as the show’s new president for it’s sixth and final season, says HuffPost, conveniently fulfilling the promise her character made at the end of the fifth season when she said it’s “my turn.”
Confirming the new madam president, HuffPost reports Netflix’s chief content officer Ted Sarandos said the move is “really exciting” and one that will offer “closure of the show for fans.”
That “closure,” however, will come in the form of an eight-episode season, says HuffPost, as opposed to the previous season’s 13 episodes.
