But Claire Underwood is definitely back
House of Cards will only soldier on to its final season because Claire (played by Robin Wright) can carry the show on her own. She's definitely returning. And barring Spacey, the core survivors from Season 5 -- Doug Stamper (Michael Kelly), Catherine Durant (Jayne Atkinson), Jane Davis (Patricia Clarkson), Janine Skorsky (Constance Zimmer), Seth Grayson (Derek Cecil), Mark Usher (Campbell Scott), and Tom Hammerschmidt (Boris McGiver) -- will be back.
(Though Neve Campbell's LeAnn was looking like she was in trouble, it wouldn't be crazy to think there's a chance she's alive -- "I think you can assume that," Pugliese told The Hollywood Reporter. "Any assumption after that I think is OK.")
Wright will also serve as an executive producer, alongside a stocked behind-the-camera roster that includes co-showrunners Melissa James Gibson and Frank Pugliese, and, of course, David Fincher.
