Netflix to Make Sixth Season of 'House of Cards'

Netflix has reached an agreement to make a sixth and final season of its hit House of Cards.

Production of the series was suspended after star Kevin Spacey was removed because of accusations of sexual harassment and other improper behavior.

Speaking at the UBS Media Conference in New York Monday, Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos said he could make an announcement about being able to bring the popular show to a conclusion.
