Kevin Spacey’s character on “House of Cards” appears to have been killed off, after the political thriller’s star was accused of sexual misconduct and booted from the Netflix series.

In a teaser for the upcoming sixth season of “House of Cards” released Wednesday, Robin Wright, who plays the wife of Spacey’s character, President Frank Underwood, is seen sporting all-black as she speaks solemnly.


“I’ll tell you this though, Francis. When they bury me, it won’t be in my backyard,” Wright’s character, Claire Underwood, says.

“And when they pay their respects,” she continues as she turns and stares directly into the camera, “they’ll have to wait in line.”

A gravestone bearing the name “Francis J. Underwood” is then seen, as the show’s signature opening music is played.

A Netflix spokeswoman didn’t immediately return ITK’s request for comment about the fate of Spacey’s character.

Netflix cut ties with Spacey — who starred as the show’s conniving protagonist — last year, after allegations of unwanted sexual advances and harassment came to light.

The 59-year-old Academy Award winner initially apologized to the first of multiple accusers, but didn’t admit to any wrongdoing.

“House of Cards,” which Netflix previously announced is ending after this season, is poised to debut on the streaming service on Nov. 2.
