Crew members on the super-popular political drama "House of Cards" were told in an email on Sunday that the show's current hiatus would be extended for another two weeks. The show's production company, Media Rights Capital, is investigating allegations of sexual misconduct against star and producer Kevin Spacey, reports CNN.
"These last two months have tested and tried all of us in ways none of us could have foreseen. The one thing we have learned throughout this process is that this production is bigger than just one person and we could not be more proud to be associated with one of the most loyal and talented production cast and crews in this business," wrote MRC Senior Vice President Pauline Micelli.
According to the email, staff members will continue to be paid during the hiatus, other cast members and union members who aren't active will be paid according to union guidelines, and a small group of office and accoutning staffers are working out of the production office.
The sixth season the the Netflix hit was meant to be the show's last, but was halted after Anthony Rapp first accused Spacey of sexual misconduct in October. It was later reported that current and former show employees had also made allegations of sexual harassment and assault against the show's star.
While the show is unlikely to be canceled (writers are currently trying to figure out how to continue the plot without one of its largest components), doing so could wipe out more than 2,000 jobs and hurt the city of Baltimore, where the show has primarily filmed for its last five seasons.
