It's official. Netflix are moving ahead with House of Cards, without Kevin Spacey. 

Production on the show was halted following a string of sexual misconduct allegations made against Spacey. 

Yesterday, Netflix boss Ted Sarandos announced that a deal had been reached and that work on the show's final season would continue. 

Speaking at UBS's Global Media and Communications Conference in New York, Sarandos said 'We were really excited we could get to an agreement… for the conclusion of the show. 

The final 8 episodes of the show will see Robin Wright return as Claire Underwood. It does remain unclear how the production team plan to write out Spacey's President Frank Underwood. 

Production will begin in 2018.
