Since the allegations against Kevin Spacey became public, House Of Cards has gone into a production hiatus as the producers behind the scenes scramble to either write Spacey's character completely out of the series - or just end it entirely, and focus on possible spinoffs.

In a letter sent to the cast and crew of House Of Cards by Media Rights Capital and subsequently republished by Variety, the show's producers explained that the hiatus is still continuing - but gave no indication as to the status of the series.

"We continue to work with Netflix with the hope of resuming production soon. As we continue these discussions, we have determined together that the crew will be paid for an additional two week hiatus – beginning on November 27th and continuing through December 8th," read the letter.

It goes on, saying that "(these) last two months have tested and tried all of us in ways none of us could have foreseen. The one thing we have learned throughout this process is that this production is bigger than just one person...", but does not specifically name Spacey at any point in the letter.

Netflix have said that the series will not move forward with Spacey's involvement, but stopped short of saying that the series was cancelled. Neither Robin Wright, Michael Kelly or any of the other cast have spoken publicly about Spacey since the allegations broke.
