Cape Town – Deadline reports that House of Cards may resume sometime in December.  

This comes after production of the sixth season was put on hold after a series of allegations of sexual harassment and assault against Kevin Spacey.

Spacey was also fired from the show after eight House of Cards staff members accused him of abuse. (Read more here)

The Maryland-based production crew for House of Cards will continue to get paid for at least another two weeks.

The Baltimore Sun reported that production company Media Rights Capital has updated the cast and crew in an email. It says they'll be paid for an additional two-week period that begins Monday and continues through 8 December.

The email said the company will provide another update by 8 December. The show is filmed in the Baltimore area. Between 250 and 300 people work on the production crew.

In a letter obtained by the publication sent to the cast and crew by Pauline Micelli, Media Rights Capital SVP of television business and legal affairs, she thanked the crew for their patience.

“These last two months have tested and tried all of us in ways none of us could have foreseen. The one thing we have learned throughout this process is that this production is bigger than just one person and we could not be more proud to be associated with one of the most loyal and talented production cast and crews in this business,” read the letter.
