Filming on the sixth and final season of House of Cards resumed last month following the removal of Kevin Spacey due to allegations of sexual misconduct, and now comes word from Netflix of a new addition to the cast.
Australian actor Cody Fern, who recently portrayed David Madson in FX’s American Crime Story: The Assassination of Gianni Versace has signed on for a role, joining fellow new additions Diane Lane and Greg Kinnear.
The final season of the acclaimed political drama series will shift the focus from Spacey’s Frank Underwood to his wife Claire, played by Robin Wright. Also returning to the cast for the final run of episodes are Michael Kelly, Jayne Atkinson, Patricia Clarkson, Constance Zimmer, Derek Cecil, Campbell Scott and Boris McGiver.
As yet, there’s no word on a premiere date for the final season of House of Cards, but we’ll keep you posted.
