Netflix Renews ‘House of Cards’ For Third Season

Netflix has preemptively renewed House Of Cards for a third season, even before the premiere of the second season. The Emmy winning series received an early renewal, and production on the third season is reportedly set to begin very soon possibly placing the next seasons premiere in February, 2015.

The show aired its first season in February last year and almost immediately House Of Cards received an overwhelming response from audiences internationally. The show focuses on Congressman Francis Underwood as he flows through his political career recklessly dealing with situations as they swerve onto the path to his aspiring presidency breaking the law and covering up dirty politics in his wake. The series also follows the congressman’s wife Claire Underwood and her charity work that is almost constantly either being assured, assisted and favored upon in relation to political motivation.

Netflix‘s Ted Sarandos commented back in October, 2013 on the intent to continue the show saying “Our intent is that the show keep going for sure, It was a 26-episode commitment. It was not our intent that it just run for two seasons.” With the first season scoring a total of nine Emmy nominations and four Golden Globe nominations it is likely that Netflix will continue to create yearly original seasons of the show for a while to come.

The soon to be streamed second season of the Emmy Award Winning political drama series House Of Cards continues to follow Congressman Francis Underwood as he becomes Vice President and continues his ruthless rise to power. Zoe Barnes, an up-and-coming reporter and Francis’s former paramour, is inching closer to the truth about his crimes. President Walker’s billionaire confidante Raymond Tusk demands that Francis reciprocate political favors or face retribution and Claire confronts the increasing glare of the spotlight as it eats away at her and Francis’ once private existence.

Season Two of House Of Cards begins streaming on February 14th.
