Netflix, who produces the popular “House of Cards” series starring the disgraced Spacey, has unceremoniously given him the ax following allegations of sexual assault of minors levied against the actor.

“Netflix will not be involved with any further production of House of Cards that includes Kevin Spacey,” it said in a statement Friday.

“We will continue to work with [Media Rights Capital, the production house behind the show] during this hiatus time to evaluate our path forward as it relates to the show,” it said.

“We have also decided we will not be moving forward with the release of the film Gore, which was in post-production, starring and produced by Kevin Spacey.”

The announcement came on the same day that three more men told BuzzFeed News that Spacey harassed and assaulted them.

One of the accusers said the actor plied him with alcohol and asked him to watch homosexual pornography with him when he was 16-years-old.

The news came days after actor Anthony Rapp said Spacey attempted to sexually assault him when he was 14.

That was followed by another man who described a creepy sexual incident with Spacey.

The statement from Netflix did not address the future of the sixth, and final, season of “House of Cards,” which has been suspended.

But Page Six has reported that the show will go on, sans Spacey, who has played President Francis Underwood in the series.
