Others subsequently came forward with sexual misconduct claims against the Oscar victor, prompting House of Cards producers to fire Spacey and rework the story line for the show's final season to focus on co-star Robin Wright's character, conniving Claire Underwood. While it is unclear how Lane and Kinnear will function as either allies or adversaries of U.S. President Claire Underwood (Robin Wright) or any of her staff, House of Cards has announced that the new actors will portray siblings. Diane Lane and Greg Kinnear will join the political thriller for its sixth and final season, Netflix announced today in a press release.

Speculation about whether the show would be cancelled or not due to the sexual misconduct controversy surrounding main actor Kevin Spacey was dismissed by show bosses, who confirmed that the show would now see Robin Wright's Claire Underwood take centre stage.

After a little less than a two-month shutdown, House of Cards has resumed production on their sixth and final season.

With Lane and Kinnear joining the House of Cards cast, they'll be joined by mainstays, Michael Kelly, Constance Zimmer, Jayne Atkinson, Derek Cecil, Patricia Clarkson, Campbell Scott and Boris McGiver. In addition to the final season of House of Cards, Spacey was signed to star in a biographical film about writer Gore Vidal. Based on what we know about House of Cards, they'll be playing deeply shady, highly dubious people who have a mad lust for power.

Newport Beach fire Captain Chip Duncan says it's unclear whether the three people who were killed were on board the Robinson R44. It crashed into the home in the 40 block of Egret Court around 1:45 p.m., according to Newport Beach fire and FAA officials.

When the allegations came out, Spacey deflected the news by publicly coming out as gay.
