House of Cards
Netflix is currently cooking up a “House of Cards” spinoff. Netflix

It was a heartbreaking blow to have Netflix’s “House of Cards” canceled in light of Kevin Spacey’s sexual harassment allegations. Even production for its sixth season was placed on an indefinite halt because of it.

However, all hope is not lost because Variety reported that the streaming service and producer Media Rights Capital (MRC) is currently working on multiple ideas for a potential “House of Cards” spinoff.

They are currently in the early stages of development, and so far, ideas have started forming around Doug Stamper (Michael Kelly), the political aide-de-camp of Frank Underwood (Spacey). Eric Roth, who served as an executive producer for the first four seasons of “House of Cards,” is set to write the script.

So even though Frank and Claire’s (Robin Wright) story might not continue, there’s still chance that “House of Cards” fans will see their other favorite characters lying and cheating their way to the top.

Earlier, Netflix and MRC announced that the fate of Season 6 still hangs in the balance because of the public’s fury concerning Spacey’s harassment accusations.

They said in a joint statement shared with Entertainment Weekly: “MRC and Netflix have decided to suspend production on ‘House of Cards’ season six, until further notice, to give us time to review the current situation and to address any concerns of our cast and crew.”

Spacey’s woes began after he was accused by actor Anthony Rapp, 46, of sexual misconduct dating back to 1986. Rapp, who was 14 then while Spacey was 26, claimed that Spacey harassed him at a party when he was carried “up like a groom picks up the bride over the threshold.”

“But I don’t, like, squirm away initially, because I’m like, ‘What’s going on?’ And then he lays down on top of me,” Rapp told Buzz Feed.

In response, Spacey said he was “beyond horrified” by the story since he could not even remember the encounter. He apologized to Rapp and later confessed that he was gay. “I have loved and had romantic relationships with men throughout my life, and I choose now to live as a gay man,” he said.
