The allegations that have come from Anthony Rapp have nothing to do with the decision to end House of Cards. After season six, House of Cards will be finished as announced on Monday.
The show ran 2013 and will continue to run until it’s end date in 2018. Currently there are five seasons with the sixth in production. It was announced that after the sixth season, House of Cards would be no more.
It was stated that the show was canceled well before accusations came out from Anthony Rapp stating that House of Cards star, Kevin Spacey, made sexual advances toward a young 14-year-old Rapp more than 30 years ago in 1986.
But speaking of the accusations that were made against Kevin Spacey, he had no recollection of the events that occurred in the past.
Kevin Spacey’s statement to Rolling Stone says it all, “I honestly do not remember the encounter, it would have been over 30 years ago,” Spacey wrote. “But if I did behave as he describes, I owe him the sincerest apology for what would have been deeply inappropriate drunken behavior, and I am sorry for the feelings he describes having carried with him all these years. … I know that there are stories out there about me and that some have been fueled by the fact that I have been so protective of my privacy. As those closest to me know, in my life I have had relationships with both men and women. I have loved and had romantic encounters with men throughout my life, and I choose now to live as a gay man.”
Many have criticized the timing of Spacey coming out, to cover up or hide the fact that the allegation made against him may be true or saying he is justifying the events.
One fact that is true, the accusations had nothing to do with the ending of the show. The other rumor is that the Netflix Original, also staring Spacey, is canceled. That rumor is true. However, there was no reason given for the cancelation of Gore.
So while HoC is canceled, it has nothing to do with the fact that allegations were made against Spacey. Will you watch season six of House of Cards when it is released in 2018? What did you think of the news? Let us know what you think.
