Diane Lane and Greg Kinnear to Join HOUSE OF CARDS Series Finale

Diane Lane and Greg Kinnear to Join HOUSE OF CARDS Series Finale

Netflix announced today the full cast for the Kevin Spacey-less series finale of its hit series House of Cards. Oscar-nominated performers Diane Lane and Greg Kinnear will star alongside series star Robin Wright as the conniving Claire Underwood, who has achieved her master plan to stealthily become President of the United States.

Besieged by trouble and question marks after the ousting of its beleaguered star Spacey, there were rumors that Netflix could kill its original baby without a proper goodbye or burial. Ultimately for a variety of reasons, it seems, they decided to go on with House of Cards. The series is, famously, the first original series produced by Netflix and the first ever to receive major Primetime Emmy Nominations, a total 53 to date, with seven wins. It was also received six Golden Globe nods and two wins, and 11 SAG nominations and two wins. It has received a host of other nominations from major guilds.

The last season is expected to be an abbreviated one to wrap up the series, and will feature series regulars Michael Kelly, Jayne Atkinson, Patricia Clarkson, Constance Zimmer, Derek Cecil, and Campbell Scott around the majestic presence of Wright as underwood.

Netflix announced that production on House of Cards began today, with no release date yet set for the anticipated series finale.
