Not long after House Of Cards’ Kevin Spacey got involved in sexual allegations, Netflix is moving ahead with plans for a spinoff.
Spacey is currently not on set for ‘House of Cards’ in Baltimore.
According to Variety, the streaming service and producer Media Rights Capital are in very early stages of development on multiple ideas for a potential spinoff.
One concept revolves around Doug Stamper, the political aide-de-camp played by actor Michael Kelly in the first five seasons of the political drama, with Eric Roth set to write.
Plans for the spinoff have not been impeded by the uncertainty around the show’s sixth season. Currently in production in Baltimore, Netflix recently confirmed that House of Cards will end after the upcoming sixth season.
House of Cards premiered in 2013. Since then, the series has been nominated for 53 Primetime Emmy Awards — including five nominations for outstanding drama series.
