    'House of Cards' Halts Production Amid Spacey Allegations

    (CNN)Production on the sixth and final season of "House of Cards" has been halted after star Kevin Spacey was accused of sexual assault by an actor who claims he was a minor at the time of the alleged incident.

    Netflix and Media Rights Capital, which produces the series, confirmed the move in a joint statement issued Tuesday.

    "MRC and Netflix have decided to suspend production on 'House of Cards' season six, until further notice, to give us time to review the current situation and to address any concerns of our cast and crew," the statement read.

    On Sunday, actor Anthony Rapp told BuzzFeed about an alleged encounter with Spacey at a party in 1986. At the time, Rapp was 14 years old and Spacey, according to Rapp, made a sexual advance toward him.

    Spacey issued a statement late Sunday, claiming he did not recall the incident but apologized for what he said would have been "inappropriate drunken behavior."

    "But if I did behave then as he describes, I owe him the sincerest apology for what would have been deeply inappropriate drunken behavior, and I am sorry for the feelings he describes having carried with him all these years," Spacey said.

    Netflix announced on Monday that Season 6 of "House of Cards" would be the show's last.

    Love Kevin spacey as an actor. Sucks that’s he’s a dirtbag. Pretty terrible stuff if true.

    As far as house of cards goes it was time anyway.. last season was horrendously boring to watch compared to the others.

    I haven't watched last season but I will. I agree its time to end the series.

    Production on the sixth and final season of “House of Cards” will go forward without Spacey and his lead character, former President Frank Underwood.
    Really no surprise here
