House of Cards season 6 has a premiere date. On Tuesday, Aug. 7, the show’s official Twitter account tweeted out a photo to announce when the final season of the Netflix hit show will be made available. Season 6 will be premiering in November, according to the photo which was captioned “The Final Season. November 2. #MyTurn.”
The House of Cards season 6 promo poster is similar to the image from the first season of the political drama, only this time we have Robin Wright’s Claire Underwood sitting as the new president of the United States. Wright replaced Kevin Spacey in the role after he was dismissed from Netflix following a sexual misconduct scandal in the midst of the #MeToo movement.
“Netflix will not be involved with any further production of House of Cards that includes Kevin Spacey,” the streaming service said in a statement at the time the allegations came to light.
The final season of House of Cards will feature eight episodes with the hope of bringing “closure of the show for fans.” It will be interesting to see how well-written the final season is written after writers were left scrambling to write Wright in as the lead once production stopped.
“The poor [writers] have been sweating over their candles and pens. It’s been really, truly difficult, but what [producers] Media Rights Capital, Netflix and the writers have done is superb,” Michael Dobbs, author of the original House of Cards Novels, said in an interview with BBC Radio 4. “They have set some standards and they have come back with some fine, fresh new creative stuff.”
