After its upcoming sixth season, Netflix’ political drama “House of Cards” will end. The company made the announcement on Monday, a day after a sexual misconduct allegation emerged against Kevin Spacey who plays the role Frank Underwood in the drama series.

Netflix also said that it was “deeply troubled” about an allegation made by actor Anthony Rapp against Spacey, who Rapp claims had made sexual advances to him when he was just 14 years old.

Spacey said earlier in a Twitter post that he was “beyond horrified” to hear Rapp’s story, which he said he did not remember. He also said that he owes Rapp a “sincere apology” for what he said would have been a “deeply inappropriate drunken behavior.”

In the same Twitter post, the 58-year old actor who won Oscars for his performances in “American Beauty” and “The Usual Suspects,” has made his declaration that he has “chosen to live his life as a gay man.”

A representative for Spacey did not immediately respond to the media for comment.
