This cancellation shocked fans for less-common reasons. After Season 5 aired, House of Cards star, Kevin Spacey, was fired due to sexual assault allegations. The actor released a less-than-satisfactory statement explaining his actions, and Netflix cut ties with all of his projects. Co-star Robin Wright stepped up as Claire Underwood. Sadly, HOC faced poor reviews post-Spacey.
