Netflix has settled on a release date for House of Cards Season 6: November 2nd, just four days ahead of the midterm elections.
Golden Globe winner and Emmy Award nominee Robin Wright returns as President of the United States, replacing Kevin Spacey, who was let go after allegations surfaced of his sexual misconduct. Wright, who in the new key art is seen seated just as Spacey was in the first season poster, will be joined by returning cast members Michael Kelly, Jayne Atkinson, Patricia Clarkson, Constance Zimmer, Derek Cecil, Campbell Scott and Boris McGiver, as well as new major additions including Academy Award nominees Diane Lane and Greg Kinnear.
House of Cards Season 6 will bring closure for longtime fans of Netflix’s flagship drama, as production on the concluding season was halted as the allegations against Spacey began to surface. After severing ties, the show, created by Beau Willimon, will deliver a truncated eight-episode final season.
In 2013, House of Cards became the first original online series to receive major nominations from the Primetime Emmy Awards. The series has received 53 Emmy nominations to date, with seven wins — including the first major Emmy for a streaming service for David Fincher’s win for “Outstanding Directing for a Drama Series.” House of Cards received six Golden Globe nominations, and two wins. The historic series has received 11 Screen Actors Guild nominations with two wins; an AFI Award; four Writers Guild Award nominations, with one win; two BAFTA nominations; four Producers Guild Award nominations; two Directors Guild Award nominations; and a Peabody Award, among other accolades.
House of Cards Season 6 executive producers are Melissa James Gibson, Frank Pugliese, Robin Wright, David Fincher, Joshua Donen, Dana Brunetti, Eric Roth, Michael Dobbs and Andrew Davies. Donen/Fincher/Roth will produce, with MRC as the studio, for Netflix.
