The premiere date for the final season of House of Cards has been announced through the official House of Cards Twitter account.
This sixth and final season will be coming to Netflix November 2, and will heavily feature Claire Underwood as its primary character after previous star Kevin Spacey was removed from the show following sexual misconduct allegations last year.
The image announcing the date is reminiscent of posters that once featured Frank Underwood, but now Claire sits atop the chair of the Lincoln Memorial, with her hand clenching the armrest and bleeding profusely. It reveals, like the majority of Netflix series, that all episodes for the season will be released on the same day. The post was accompanied by the hashtag #MyTurn, suggesting Claire’s reign over the U.S. presidency is about to begin.
This final season has had a rollercoaster ride of a production, as filming was suspended late last year only two weeks into production. This suspension was quickly followed by Netflix deciding to remove Spacey from the show following sexual misconduct allegations that were made against him. This sixth season will be the show’s last, though a spin-off show is reportedly in the works.
It was confirmed late last year that Spacey’s character will be entirely absent from the final season. The sixth season resumed production earlier this year with some new actors sharing the screen with Robin Wright’s Claire Underwood, including Diane Lane, Greg Kinnear, Michael Kelly, Jayne Atkinson, Patricia Clarkson, Constance Zimmer, Derek Cecil, Campbell Scott and Boris McGiver.
Colin Stevens is a freelance writer for IGN, and he thinks Claire will make for a fine, sadistic president. Follow him on Twitter.
