During Sunday night’s Oscars ceremony, Netflix dropped the first trailer for the sixth and final season of its popular political drama, House of Cards.
This time around, things are looking quite different. There’s nary a sign of Kevin Spacey, who played former protagonist Frank Underwood; instead, the trailer features a fierce-looking Robin Wright as Claire Underwood, Frank’s wife.
Spacey was booted from House of Cards by Netflix after a slew of sexual assault allegations emerged against him. As of this writing, more than 30 men have accused Spacey of sexual misconduct. (He is currently “taking the time necessary to seek evaluation and treatment.“)
In the trailer, with the tagline “Hail to the Chief,” Wright’s Underwood sits behind the desk her husband once occupied in the Oval Office. She smiles, stands and declares, “We’re just getting started.”
It’s unclear where the series is going to go, or how the show will deal with Spacey’s departure. House of Cards resumed production in January after taking a three-month hiatus. The writers admittedly had to rejig their plans for the show’s arc, and are going in an entirely different direction in Season 6.
House of Cards will return in the fall of 2018.
