After Kevin Spacey's shocking crimes came to light, Netflix decided to sever ties with the actor. Spacey played the role of the perfect antihero Frank Underwood on the award-winning drama House of Cards. The show, with its whopping nine Emmy nominations, ran successfully for five seasons but struck out of luck when the showrunners unexpectedly canceled it amid the sixth season.
In October 2017, actor Anthony Rapp made the aforementioned allegations against Spacey that Buzzfeed published. The incident of sexual misconduct dates back to 1986 when Rapp was 14 and Spacey, 26. Within days, more than 30 people came forward with similar stories about Spacey's inappropriate behavior. The show's fate was under discussion for a long time before Media Rights Capital fired the two-time Oscar-winner and shut down production on the show. That's not all! He was also recast in All the Money in the World.
