Fern joins Golden Globe winner Robin Wright as well as Diane Lane and Greg Kinnear, Michael Kelly, Jayne Atkinson, Patricia Clarkson, Constance Zimmer, Derek Cecil, Campbell Scott and Boris McGiver in the upcoming sixth and final season, which will consist of eight episodes.
Filming of the series resumed last week on season 6 after being shut down in October after allegations of sexual assault and harassment against the series star Kevin Spacey. Shortly after Netflix announced they were cutting ties with Spacey and Wright would now lead the show.
In 2013 House of Cards became the first original online series to receive major nominations from the Primetime Emmy Awards. The series has garnered 53 Emmy nominations to date with seven wins.
Fern most recently appeared in American Crime Story: The Assassination of Gianni Versace, opposite Darren Criss. He also played the lead role in the film The Tribes of Palos Verdes alongside Jennifer Garner and Maika Monroe. He is represented by CAA.
