House of Cards, the American political drama based on the novel written by Michael Dobbs in 1989, was the part of discussion all around the world. It has received more love worldwide than criticism. The show has in total six seasons as of yet. However, the news for the seventh season is in the air, but it is terrible.
Here are the details you need to catch up on regarding the show.
Why is House of Cards not getting renewed for a seventh season?
Well, the makers have made it official that House of Cards is not going to get a season seven. It is a piece of unfortunate news for all the fans out there who have been eagerly waiting to hear some good news amidst this global pandemic.
Looking at the reason why the show is not getting a renewal is pretty apparent. The news of Anthony Rapp allegedly calling out the lead actor Kevin Spacey of sexual assault is nothing new. It is more so horrifying because Rapp was 14 years old when sexually assaulted. Because of these allegations, the protagonist of the show Kevin Spacey, had to walk out of the show. It is because of this reason that renewal of the show is unlikely with the lead actor Kevin Spacey no longer being the part of the cast.
Is Netflix removing House of Cards altogether?
Presently, rumors are that Netflix is planning to remove House of Cards from the platform given the controversy the show has given rise to. It is only natural for the streaming giant to want that to maintain its reputation.
How did we see House of Cards Season 6 end?
As Kevin Spacey got fired from the show after the sexual assault allegations, the writers had to change the plot inevitably. Thus, in the sixth season, we see Robin Wright playing the role of Claire Underwood become the new president of the USA. Claire, in the last season, appeared to destroy Franks’s image to protect her presidency.
The show ends with Claire Underwood stabbing Doug Stamper with a knife and killing him right away. This uncertain ending has left the viewers with a lot of questions in their mind. Even though chances of a season seven happening doesn’t seem possible, we can expect the story to follow Claire’s lead if it does.
What about House of Cards Season 7?
Well, the wait is finally over. There has been some announcement regarding the release of House of Cards Season 7. We all have been waiting eagerly for an update on it. And here it is, amidst all the news and rumors of cancellation.
House of Cards Season 6 got released during the October of 2018. It has been announced that the Season 7 of House of Cards will be aired in 2023, towards the end of October. Now if this is not good news, we do not know what is. Moreover, the protagonist of the show, Claire Underwood will be back with his quirks. We are eager to see how he crosses the hurdles presented to him in season 7.
How many episodes will there be in House of Cards Season 7?
There is a fair chance that there might be an approx. of 8 episodes in the latest season of House of Cards, airing this October of 2023. Luckily, it has been said that the trailer of the show will be aired a month before the show itself.
So, brace yourself. You can even put a timer on, if you may. Your favorite show will be having its season 7 aired soon. Hang in tight.
