Netflix has declined to say what prompted the decision to end its popular drama starring Kevin Spacey, who has been accused of sexual misconduct by a fellow actor.

Netflix is ending House of Cards after its sixth season, the company confirmed to BuzzFeed News on Monday.

Before Netflix's confirmation of the series' end, a lot of people had called for it to be canceled in the wake of Rapp's allegations.
