Along with the pics, a spokesperson said in a statement: "Golden Globe victor and Emmy Award nominee Robin Wright returns as President of the United States in the sixth and final season of the award-winning landmark series House of Cards". The fifth season ended with the lead up to Claire taking over the presidency, teasing the political feud between her and Frank.

The show's final season had to undergo a massive production shift late a year ago when Spacey was accused of numerous acts of sexual assault, leading to his firing from the show. After Star Trek Discovery actor Anthony Rapp alleged that Spacey made sexual advances toward him in 1986, when Spacey was 26 years old and Rapp just 14, Netflix suspended production on the series, cut ties with Spacey, and announced that House of Cards would end with season 6.

In the first teaser for season 6, which will be the show's final run, we were introduced to the new status quo: Frank Underwood's gone and there's a new President in town.

The pics show President Claire Underwood on set, looking ultra-presidential - in one, she wears a navy suit with a high neckline (no more sexy sheaths?).

Justify: Racing's $75-Million Horse?
Earlier, Baffert and jockey Mike Smith teamed to win the $750,000 Ogden Phipps with Abel Tasman. The race was won by a half-length, with Justify finishing the 1 3/16-mile race in 1:55.93.

Robin Wright works on the set of "House Of Cards".

Some cast additions for the next season include Greg Kinnear, Diane Lane and Cody Fern who join the established cast of Michael Kelly, Jayne Atkinson, Campbell Scott, Derek Cecil, Patricia Clarkson, and Constance Zimmer.

From what we understand, the sixth and final season of the hit drama will be a little shorter than usual - eight episodes over the usual batch of ten - when it arrives in the not-so-distant future.
