Fans of the critically acclaimed and wildly popular Netflix show House of Cards were treated to a new morbid teaser confirming the death of the show’s main character President Frank Underwood. The show was forced to go through a bit of a shakeup before the filming of its sixth and final season after its star Kevin Spacey was outed during the early stages of the #MeToo movement by actor Anthony Rapp for making sexual advances on him when Rapp was only 14 years old. The creators were forced to remove Spacey from the show and propelling Robin Wright’s character Claire Underwood into the spotlight and having the story follow her into the highest position in the country as president. But how are the creators going to move the story forward without Spacey involved? Well as a new teaser trailer explains, a Frank Underwood death was really the only way.
