  • The Bustle Huddle What Bustle's Editors Are Talking About On Oct. 30

Issuing a joint statement on Monday October 30, Netflix and Media Rights Capital confirmed that Spacey was not now on the House of Cards set - quietly begging the question of if he will ever return to it.

One of the streaming service's most critically acclaimed and popular shows will be over after its upcoming sixth season.

The move came two days after actor Anthony Rapp alleged double Oscar victor Spacey made a "sexual advance" when he was a 14-year-old boy more than 30 years ago, speaking out in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein scandal.

News of the spin-offs came on the same day that Netflix announced the show was ending, an announcement which followed the sexual advance allegations levelled against its star Kevin Spacey.

He went on to publicly announce he is gay for the first time.

The group says "it will not honor Kevin Spacey with the 2017 International Emmy Founders Award", which is to honor "an individual who crosses cultural boundaries to touch humanity".

Then, Leapfrog says researchers weigh the evidence, opportunity for improvement and impact of each measure to calculate a grade. Leapfrog measured things like preventable infections, patient satisfaction, and systems in place to prevent mistakes.

Kevin Spacey's $90 online class on acting is no longer available from MasterClass, a move that comes after the actor was accused of sexually assaulting a 14-year-old boy two decades ago. "I could never imagine [that] anyone else I know would do something like that to a 14-year-old boy".

Spacey had responded to the allegations with an apology, saying he did not remember the incident.

"Media Rights Capital and Netflix have always set the highest standards in their work and I want to thank them unreservedly".

"I came forward with my story, standing on the shoulders of the many courageous women and men who have been speaking out, to shine a light and hopefully make a difference, as they have done for me", Rapp said on Twitter after Spacey's statement.

It makes sense then that his Emmy-nominated series House of Cards is in production limbo.

Spacey is the latest Hollywood figure to be named in widening allegations of sexual harassment and abuse in entertainment, media and other industries. He had never disclosed his sexuality before but said Rapp's story encouraged him to speak.
