On Monday, Netflix announced that season six of House of Cards would be the show’s final season, but it seemed as if there would be at least one more season of the show featuring Kevin Spacey’s Frank Underwood as the President of the United States.

In a statement from Monday, the two companies cited Spacey directly for the reason behind the announcement that season 6 would be the show’s last, stating they were “deeply troubled” concerning the allegations against the star.

According to Deadline, season 6 of House of Cards was slated for 13 episodes and set to debut in mid-2018.

On Sunday, actor Anthony Rapp accused Kevin Spacey of unwanted sexual advances during a party when he was 14 and Spacey was 26, 31 years ago in 1986. Spacey then released an apology saying he had no recollection of the  event but that he was sorry, and that he was now living fully as a gay man.
