The final season of Netflix’s “House of Cards” resumed filming on Wednesday as Oscar-nominated actors Diane Lane and Greg Kinnear joined the cast for the show’s final season, Deadline reported.
Lane and Kinnear will be cast as siblings opposite the drama’s newly solo lead, Robin Wright. The sixth and final season of “Cards” will be eight episodes long.

The political drama was filming the second of 13 episodes ordered for its sixth season when the first allegation of sexual misconduct against the show’s former star Kevin Spacey was made public in October. Netflix suspended the show’s production the following day and quickly announced that season six would be “Cards'” last.
“(We will) not be involved with any further production of ‘House of Cards’ that includes Kevin Spacey,” the streaming service said.
Netflix’s “House of Cards” will end after the season six’s final eight episodes.
Netflix later announced in January that the show would wrap up with a shortened season led by Wright.
Lane is coming into the “Cards” universe fresh off a short stint on the Amazon series “The Romanoffs,” while Kinnear recently played Vice President Joe Biden in the HBO movie “Confirmation” and appeared in an episode of Amazon’s “Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams.”
“House of Cards” was Netflix’s first original series and the first from a non-traditional television network to be nominated for multiple Emmy awards.
