House of Cards May Kill Off Frank Underwood Amid Kevin Spacey Scandal

Frank Underwood may really be out of the White House for good.

As Kevin Spacey seeks treatment amid multiple allegations that he has made unwanted sexual advances toward young men, producers are considering killing off his House of Cards character, according to Variety.

That reportedly means the sixth and final season of Netflix’s Emmy-winning political drama would focus on Underwood’s wife Claire, a fan-favorite played by Robin Wright.

The streaming service had no comment on that specific scenario, telling PEOPLE in a statement, “We will continue to work with [production company] MRC during this hiatus time to evaluate our path forward as it relates to the production, and have nothing further to share at this time.”

Production was indefinitely suspended on House of Cards earlier this week.

Star Trek: Discovery and Rent star Anthony Rapp, 46, claimed in a Buzzfeed News report published Sunday that Spacey, 58, made inappropriate sexual advances toward him at a private party in New York City in 1986. Spacey was 26 at the time, and Rapp was 14.

“I came forward with my story, standing on the shoulders of the many courageous women and men who have been speaking out, to shine a light and hopefully make a difference, as they have done for me,” Rapp said in a statement to PEOPLE.

As a response to the report, Spacey tweeted a statement saying he didn’t remember Rapp’s alleged incident and apologizing “for what would have been deeply inappropriate drunken behavior.” He also publicly came out as gay, which was met with criticism from prominent LGBTQ celebrities.

Actor Roberto Cavazos later claimed he “had a couple of unpleasant encounters with Spacey that were on the edge of being considered assault” while working at London’s Old Vic Theatre.(A representative for Spacey told PEOPLE he had no comment.)

In a CNN article published Thursday, eight anonymous House of Cards employees accused Spacey of creating a “toxic” work environment and displaying “predatory” behavior, allegedly touching staffers without consent and making lewd comments.

PEOPLE reached out to representatives for the actor, Netflix and House of Cards production company MRC in regards to the allegations made to CNN but did not receive any immediate response.

The actor’s agency CAA and his publicist have since announced they have parted ways with the actor.
