House of Cards did right by Kevin Spacey’s victims to toss existing scripts and reorient the final season around Robin Wright’s Claire. All the same, it seems the latest addition to Season 6 offers a hint at how the final arc for Spacey’s Frank Underwood might have played out.
Kevin Spacey who? House of Cards’ final season may be all about Robin Wright’s Claire Underwood, but hers won’t be the only familiar face. Both Diane Lane and Greg Kinnear have joined the eight-episode sixth season in key roles, amid other returning favorites.
Once upon a time, Netflix ordered House of Cards for two seasons as a bold experiment in original programming. The streaming service has gotten far more ruthless with its vast lineup since, but does the political thriller have the juice for a sixth year, or beyond? Bosses say there’s “nothing absolute or nothing agreed upon.”
