Production on the new season of the hit show began this week with the two notable names joining the ranks for the final eight episodes.

Diane Lane and Greg Kinnear will join returning cast members Michael Kelly, Patricia Clarkson, Constance Zimmer, Jayne Atkinson, Derek Cecil and Campbell Scott.

So far, no official description of their characters has been confirmed, however, they are said to play ‘key roles’ and reports suggest they will play siblings on the show.

The future of the series was in question after multiple allegations of sexual misconduct against Kevin Spacey emerged and he was later fired from the show.
