House of Cards
Claire Underwood (Robin Wright) does not mind that “House of Cards” Season 6 will move on without her husband. Netflix

Everybody is excited to see Claire Underwood (Robin Wright) take over the reins of the presidency in “House of Cards” Season 6, but it would definitely be a different rodeo now that her husband, Frank (Kevin Spacey), is out of the picture.

When real-life entertainment journalist Brandon Katz from the Observer talked to the fictional president, they discussed the “mess” she is inheriting from Frank.

“Madame President, the situation surrounding your position has been… uneven lately,” Katz said, to which Claire replied, “Come now, let’s not tread lightly for the camera’s sake. You’re talking about my husband, excuse me, ex-husband Francis Underwood. No need to be politically correct. Simply put, he disgraced himself, he disgraced this office and he disgraced this country. We’re all better off with him gone.”

When Katz said that she “inherited quite a mess from him,” Claire said that the media and the government “finally” agreed on something.

Katz also tackled the death of Thomas Yates (Paul Sparks). Everybody who watches the Netflix political drama knows that it was Claire who killed him, but she remained ever the diplomat when she responded: “What happened to Mr. Yates is a tragedy. Not only was he a talented writer and a valued member of our staff, but he was also a friend. Sadly, he was a man of vices. Men, women, drink and drug. I only wish I could have gotten him the help he needed in time.”

Several new actors will join the sixth and final season of “House of Cards,” and one of them is Cody Fern. According to Entertainment Weekly, the “American Crime Story: The Assassination of Gianni Versace” star will be joining other newbies in Netflix’s final season for its political drama, such as Diane Lane and Greg Kinnear. However, details about his role is still being kept under wraps.

The show almost didn’t push through with its sixth season after lead star Spacey was implicated last year with several sexual harassment accusations.

After going back and forth about it for several weeks, Netflix finally announced that production for the final season will begin in early 2018. The eight-episode season will star Wright as Claire Underwood, and Spacey will no longer be included.
