Streaming giant Netflix has officially announced that the sixth and final season of House of Cards will premiere on November 2.

With Kevin Spacey out after sexual misconduct allegations, Robin Wright will return as Claire Underwood, the President of the United States, in the series. She is joined by newcomers Diane Lane and Greg Kinnear as well as Cody Fern.

The series also brings back Michael Kelly, Jayne Atkinson, Patricia Clarkson, Constance Zimmer, Derek Cecil, Campbell Scott and Boris McGiver.
