We can’t say this is too much of a shocker, but it’s still nice to hear official confirmation. The L.A. Times reports that a Netflix spokesperson has gone on record saying a third season of their Kevin Spacey-starring political series “House of Cards” is in the works. Like the first two seasons, the third season will consist of thirteen episodes.
All thirteen episodes of Season 2 of “House of Cards” will hit Netflix at the same time on February 14th, 2014, just ten days from now, so some of you should probably start buying your snacks now in preparation for half a day’s worth of binge-watching. The first season of the show moved at a fairly deliberate pace, but by the end, I was completely hooked and I can’t wait to see more of the backdoor dealings of Kevin Spacey’s Francis Underwood and his scheming wife Claire, played wonderfully by Robin Wright.
Executive producer David Fincher won an Emmy last year for directing the first episode of the series, and clearly Netflix is using this show’s success as a model for future business moving forward. Jodie Foster and Robin Wright will direct episodes in the second season, and I’m sure we’ll be hearing announcements about the talent lined up behind the camera for season three soon.
We’ll have a review of the complete second season soon after its debut here on the site, but I want to throw it to you guys in the comments: Are you fans of “House of Cards”? Are you excited about it coming back? How many seasons do you think the series should go before it reaches its end? Let us know below, and if you’d like to catch up before the new season starts, don’t forget about the option of listening to the director’s commentaries of the first season’s episodes.
