“House of Cards” has officially been canceled. Netflix revealed fans will be forced to say goodbye to Kevin Spacey’s Frank Underwood following the show’s sixth and final season.

The decision to end the show was reportedly made over the summer, according to The Hollywood Reporter. However, an official announcement was released Monday following Spacey’s apology after Anthony Rapp accused him of sexually assault. Spacey came out as gay in the same statement.

Rapp accused Spacey of being sexually inappropriate with him in 1986 when he was 14 years old and the “Horrible Bosses” actor was 26. Rapp alleged Spacey seduced him in New York City when the two had roles in the Broadway revival, “Long Day’s Journey Into Night and Precious Sons.”

Following the accusations, Spacey issued a statement insisting he “did not remember the encounter” but said he was “horrified” by what may have happened.

“If I did behave then as he describes, I owe him the sincerest apology for what would have been deeply inappropriate drunken behavior,” he wrote in a statement posted to Instagram.

Spacey also noted that he has chosen to publicly “live as a gay man.”

While many fans are still in shock over the allegations and apology, others have mixed emotions after learning the series has been canceled.

One fan called for the show to kill off Spacey’s character rather than end the series. “Just kill Frank off-screen and let Clair rule #HouseOfCards,” one fan wrote.

On Twitter, one user was relieved that he never became a fan of the series. “And now #KevinSpacey. Glad I never got around to watching #HouseOfCards. Those cards just fell down hard,” he wrote.

Others note that the timing of Netflix’s announcement confirming the end of series was well thought out. “Netflix has wonderful timing confirming that renewal/final season of #HouseOfCards,” another person wrote.

In June, the fate of the show seemed to be up in the air. At the time, co-showrunner Melissa James Gibson was mum about the possible renewal of the show. “It’s not entirely up to us,” she said while noting that show is in “new terrain” creatively.

Although the series’ cancellation was not confirmed until Monday, the final season of the show began production in early October.

Netflix and Media Rights Capital, “House of Cards” producer, released a statement on Monday regarding Spacey’s alleged behavior. “Media Rights Capital and Netflix are deeply troubled by last night’s news concerning Kevin Spacey,” read the joint statement.

“In response to last night’s revelations, executives from both of our companies arrived in Baltimore this afternoon to meet with our cast and crew to ensure that they continue to feel safe and supported. As previously scheduled, Kevin Spacey is not working on set at this time.”

“House of Cards” Season 6 is expected to roll out the final 13 episodes in 2018 on Netflix.
