In a move the company says was made months before it became known that star Kevin Spacey was engulfed in scandal, Netflix has announced that it is to end its mega-hit House Of Cards.

Netflix origcontnetThe Golden Globe award-winning drama House of Cards was the subscription video-on-demand (SVOD) leader’s first original drama to really take hold with large audiences and, it could be argued, also shaped the current successful strategy of the company. Series six will air in the US from early 2018.

Just over two weeks ago Netflix announced a huge spike in global memberships, driven, said Netflix, by a strong appetite among its customers for original series and films, as well as the general increased demand for online video and TV across the world.

Talking to the Australian edition of The Guardian newspaper, a Netflix spokesperson said that the decision to end the show was not made in response to allegations about Spacey surfacing.
