Filming of the sixth and final season of Netflix drama 'House of Cards' has been delayed for at least another two weeks - however producers do intend to resume filming soon.

Production was halted on the series in early November in the wake of sexual harassment allegations against star Kevin Spacey, who was subsequently dropped from the show. 

In a letter to cast and crew signed by show producers Media Rights Capital the hiatus was extended until December 8 - however it was added that they were "continuing to work with Netflix with the hope of resuming production soon."

The letter, published by The Hollywood Reporter, began by thanking the cast and crew for the 'meaningful messages of support we have received from you' and assured them they would still be paid during the production down time. 

"Our hope is that the entire crew will be able to reconvene when production resumes, but we want you to know that we will certainly understand if crew members need to find other work in the interim, which will prevent them from re-joining us. We sincerely appreciate all you have done," Media Rights Capital wrote.

"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."

The letter ended by saying they would provide an additional update before the December 8 deadline.

It is not yet known how Spacey's character will be written out of the series, which had already begun filming in Baltimore, but the show's writers have continued to work through the hiatus - presumably figuring out a way to write Frank Underwood out. 

Since the wave of sexual harassment allegations against him a spokesperson for Spacey has said he is "taking the time necessary to seek evaluation and treatment".

He has since been pictured in an Arizona rehab clinic.
