Diane Lane, Greg Kinnear Join 'House of Cards' as Production Resumes

Diane Lane, Greg Kinnear Join 'House of Cards' as Production Resumes

Following a months-long shut-down after star and exec producer Spacey was sacked after sexual misconduct allegations, production on the eight-episode sixth and final season resumes Wednesday. The show is entering its final season, and without Spacey returning as Frank Underwood, the show will instead focus on Robin Wright as his wife Claire Underwood.

Diane Lane and Greg Kinnear have joined the cast of Netflix drama House of Cards for the final season of the show.

Netflix got a lot of positive press when it did the right thing and took nearly immediate and decisive action against Kevin Spacey after the actor was accused of sexual misconduct. Not House of Cards, it turns out, as Netflix announced it is carrying on with production of the series without its now disgraced, former star.

The final season of House Of Cards will run for eight episodes rather than its usual 13, and could be released as early as later this year. Spacey was sacked from the show after an exclusive CNN report revealed that the actor allegedly sexually harassed production workers on the set.

"House of Cards" is being rebuilt. The Hollywood Reporter notes that their characters are siblings, but that detail - which isn't in the official announcement, to be clear - is all we know at this point.

In 2013, House of Cards became the first original online series to receive major nominations from the Primetime Emmy Awards.

Lane, who was nominated for an Academy Award for her role in 2002's Unfaithful, recently appeared as Martha Kent in Justice League. "Lane wraps a guest starring role on the upcoming The Romanoffs series prior to production on House of Cards". House of Cards is the most prominent example, however, and many will be watching to see how (and if) it recovers.
