Cancellation Reason: House of Cards Season 7
House of Cards was a consistently positively performing show in terms of audience ratings and critics reviews. The harrowing allegations against Kevin Spacey are widely believed to be the reason why the show was immediately put under a very tight spot, leaving few options as to what could happen next. The showrunners did decide to kill off Kevin Spacey’s character Frank Underwood. The focus of the show then shifted to Claire Underwood, a character who was already considered to be a fan favourite and one of the many things that made House of Cards truly great, to begin with. This was a prudent choice made by the creative team behind the show as it gives the show a chance to end on its own terms while also moving past the majorly problematic news stories that surrounded it.
Storyline: House of Cards Season 7
