President Claire Underwood's reign in the White House will kick off later this year on Netflix. 

Netflix announced Tuesday that House of Cards Season 6 will bow on the streamer Friday, November 2.

As previously reported, it will be the final season of the political thriller and will focus on Robin Wright's Claire as she becomes the most powerful person in the United States of America.

Kevin Spacey was ousted from the series last November following multiple men coming forward with sexual assault allegations against the actor. 

Initially, the series entered a production hiatus just weeks into production on what would ultimately become the series' swan song.

“Netflix will not be involved with any further production of House of Cards that includes Kevin Spacey,” said a statement from a Netflix spokesperson at the time.

However, the streamer quickly changed course and announced that Wright would be the focal point of the final season. 

Being two weeks into filming, it meant that the creative forces behind the show had to go back to the drawing board in order to rework the season to exclude Spacey as Frank Underwood. 

There's still no word on what will become of the character, but the more likely scenario involves and off-screen death for the power hungry character. 

Last month, Wright opened up about her relationship with Spacey in an interview with The Today Show.  

"I didn't know the man," Wright said.

"We were coworkers, really. We never socialized outside of work. [It was a] respectful, professional relationship. He was so great with me. He was never disrespectful to me, so that's my personal experience," Wright said of the allegations against Spacey.

"That's the only thing that I feel I have the right to talk about." The actress went on to describe Spacey as an "incredible craftsman."

She added: "Kevin and I knew each other between 'action' and 'cut' and in between set-ups, where we would giggle."
