The eight-episode final season is set to "bring closure of the show for fans", according to Netflix president Ted Sarandos, who spoke about the show at USB's Global Media and Communications Conference in NY.
Sarandos said there would be eight episodes and that they would be produced in 2018.
"We have made an arrangement to produce six seasons of "House of Cards".
Netflix has finally spoken about future of House of Cards, whose production had been suspended indefinitely after allegations of sexual abuse against its protagonist and executive producer, Kevin Spacey. However, this may not be the end for House of Cards; sources surfaced in recent weeks claiming its spirit will live on in the form of a spin-off series.
Wright plays the wife of Spacey's scheming politician character Frank Underwood on the show.
Following Rapp's allegation, Spacey said in a post on Twitter he does not remember the alleged incident. Up until this point, each season of the popular drama has run 13-episodes.
There's a new lead in town to finish House of Cards. "Union members (including the cast) have been getting paid in their time off the past two months", Newsweek wrote last week.
A representative for Spacey did not respond to a request for comment.
The actor was also replaced by Christopher Plummer in Ridley Scott's drama All the Money in the World, leading to last-minute reshoots before the film's release on 22 December.
