Wright's character, Claire Underwood, finished season five by winning election as the first US female president after wresting power from her husband. It is not known when the eight-episode series will air.

Star Trek actor Anthony Rapp accused Spacey of sexually assaulting when he was 14 years old and numerous allegations have since emerged against the actor. Sarandos said that he was glad that Netflix was able to reach a deal for the "2,000 people in Baltimore" who work on the series. That hiatus has now been extended until the new year.

These include two investigations by police in the United Kingdom into allegations against the actor. Spacey, who underwent an investigation from Netflix into sexual misconduct allegations from other cast and crew members, will not be involved with the finale. In addition, Netflix will ramp up local-language productions, targeting 30 global scripted series around the world in 2018.

Sarandos added that the season will provide closure for fans. The show was about two weeks into filming the new season.
