The day after star Kevin Spacey was accused of making a sexual advance on a teenage actor, Netflix has disclosed his acclaimed series “House of Cards” will end after its upcoming sixth season.

Deadline reports the show’s key cast members and creative leaders were informed of the decision Monday morning. The final season of “House of Cards,” now in production, is scheduled to air in 2018.

The decision to conclude the show was made several months ago, a source told AP. The Emmy-winning drama starring Spacey and Robin Wright as an Oval Office power couple kick-started Netflix’s success in producing original shows.

On Sunday, “Star Trek Discovery” actor Anthony Rapp alleged in a Buzzfeed article that Spacey climbed on top of him in an attempt at sex in 1986, when Spacey was 26 and Rapp was 14. Spacey issued a statement of apology but said he did not remember the incident.
