House of Cards has officially resumed production on their sixth and final season, Netflix announced on Wednesday.

Late last year, production on the film was halted after Star Trek: Discovery star Anthony Rapp accused House of Cards star Kevin Spacey of making sexual advances on him when he was a minor. In the aftermath of that, others have come out accusing Spacey, and Netflix put a halt to the production, fired Kevin Spacey, and rewrote the entirety of Season 6 without Frank Underwood.

Now at the lead of the series is series co-star Robin Wright, as Frank’s wife, Claire, who has had an increasing role in the series since its first season.

Season 6 of House of Cards will consist of eight episodes, and in addition to the majority of the main cast, Netflix has also added big players Diane Lane and Greg Kinnear. While the specifics of their roles are mostly unknown, what is known is that the two will be playing siblings.

After months of planning and millions of dollars lost, it looks like Netflix’s flagship series is back on course for a strong ending.
