Part Of Netflix's 'House Of Cards' Might Live On After The Series Ends

"House of Cards" will end its run on Netflix, but the streaming service might still have plans for some of the series' characters.

Variety reports Netflix is in the early stages of developing a potential "House of Cards" spinoff — and with multiple ideas on the table, the company could greenlight more than one.

One possible spinoff is with President Frank Underwood's chief of staff Doug Stamper. Actor Michael Kelly, who plays Stamper, has been with the series since it started in 2013.

The Hollywood Reporter says Netflix is also considering ideas involving members of the press, played by Boris McGiver and Constance Zimmer.

On Monday, Netflix said "House of Cards" would end after its upcoming sixth season. The announcement came after "Star Trek: Discovery" actor Anthony Rapp accused Kevin Spacey of making a sexual advance toward him when he was 14. Spacey, who stars as Frank Underwood in "House of Cards," apologized for his "deeply inappropriate drunken behavior" and came out as gay in the same statement.

Despite the timing of the show's cancellation, Deadline reports Netflix already considered ending "House of Cards" before the Spacey allegations.

It's not surprising Netflix might keep some parts of the show going. It was the streaming site's first original series and has won seven Emmys and two Golden Globes.
