Two new players are coming to play "House of Cards." The Netflix political drama is adding Diane Lane and Greg Kinnear to the cast for its sixth and final season.

"House of Cards" was shut down in the middle of production on the season after star and executive producer Kevin Spacey was fired over sexual misconduct allegations.

Netflix and producers Media Rights Capital decided to rework the story to focus on Robin Wright's character, Claire Underwood. At the end of Season 5, President Frank Underwood (Spacey) resigned and wife/VP Claire took over. Wright turned to the camera for one of the show's signature fourth-wall-breaking asides to say "My turn."

Lane and Kinnear will play siblings, but more details about their characters are unknown. The cast also includes Michael Kelly, Jayne Atkinson, Patricia Clarkson, Constance Zimmer, Derek Cecil, Campbell Scott and Boris McGiver.

Lane is an Oscar, Emmy, and Golden Globe nominee who can be seen in Amazon's upcoming "The Romanoffs." Kinnear also recently worked for Amazon, in "Philip K. Dick's Electric Dreams."
