‘House of Cards': Diane Lane, Greg Kinnear Join Cast as Final Season Production Resumes


Netflix is adding star power to the final season cast of House of Cards following Kevin Spacey’s firing. Oscar nominees Diane Lane and Greg Kinnear have joined the cast of the streaming giant’s first original series. Following a months-long shut-down after star and exec producer Spacey was fired after sexual misconduct allegations, production on the eight-episode sixth and final season resumes Wednesday. Lane and Kinnear will play siblings on House of Cards. Additional details about their characters are being kept under wraps.


During the shut-down, Netflix and producers Media Rights Capital reworked the final season plan to revolve around Robin Wright’s Claire Underwood, the wife to Spacey’s Frank. Writing Spacey out of House of Cards isn’t a stretch. In the Michael Dobbs book that inspired the series, Frank’s character dies.


A premiere date for the final season of House of Cards has not yet been determined.
