International Academy of Television Arts and Sciences withdraws award for Kevin Spacey

'As previously scheduled, Kevin Spacey is not working on set at this time'.

Netflix and the show's producer Media Rights Capital had already made a decision to end the series at the end of the current season but on Tuesday they chose to pause the production, which is filmed in Baltimore, "to give us time to review the current situation and to address any concerns of our cast and crew". Netflix is reportedly weighing different concepts for a spinoff of the hit show.

The season 4 gag shows baby Stewie (voiced by series creator MacFarlane) running naked through a crowded shopping mall and yelling, "Help, I've escaped from Kevin Spacey's basement!"

News of the spin-offs came on the same day that Netflix announced the show was ending, an announcement which followed the sexual advance allegations levelled against its star Kevin Spacey. Spacey also came out as gay, and the timing and circumstances of this disclosure generated a firestorm of criticism.

"Media Rights Capital and Netflix have always set the highest standards in their work and I want to thank them unreservedly". In response to the allegations, Willimon said Rapp's story is "deeply troubling".

"I honestly do not remember the encounter, it would have been over 30 years ago", Spacey stated.

In an interview published on Monday, Rapp told BuzzFeed News that Spacey had invited him to his apartment for a party in 1986.

That raises the prospect that season 6 of House of Cards could swiftly do away with Spacey's character, Frank Underwood, and refocus the show around his wife Claire Underwood, played by Robin Wright.

The reaction to that particular "apology" statement from Spacey was met with widespread scorn by Hollywood, with many rightly calling out his conflation of being gay (which he called a choice) with pedophilia.

"That said, I take reports of such behaviour seriously and this is no exception".

House of Cards was the first original drama from the streaming giant, and changed the face of on-demand television with its high production values and Oscar-winning cast. He had never disclosed his sexuality before but said Rapp's story encouraged him to speak.
