The Hollywood Reporter said Netflix content chief Ted Sarandos had announced that production on the popular political drama - put on hold in the wake of allegations of sexual harassment made against Spacey - would resume.

Netflix had fired Kevin Spacey and cut all ties with him after numerous allegations of sexual misconduct had surfaced against him spanning decades, including those by the crew of House of Cards.

Sarandos did not say when season six would air or how Spacey's character would be treated in the show.

Instead of the power-hungry politician Frank Underwood, played by Spacey, the star of the last season will be USA actress Robin Wright, in the role of Underwood's wife Claire. In early November, Netflix went a step further, announcing that the service would no longer work with Spacey, also deciding to shelve the release of the actor's Gore Vidal biopic, a Netflix original feature film that was already in post-production this fall.

Frank Underwood is done in Washington.

House of Cards Season 6 will hit Netflix in 2018.

Kevin Spacey has been accused by "Star Trek: Discovery" actor Anthony Rapp of making an unwanted sexual advance towards him when he was 14-years-old. Following Rapp's statement, the "House of Cards" star issued an apology and also came out as a gay man, saying he does not remember the incident and that it "would have been deeply inappropriate drunken behaviour".

Spacey, meanwhile, "is taking the time necessary to seek evaluation and treatment" his rep said last month.
