Is Season Three on the House of Cards? Netflix Confident in Kevin Spacey Political Thriller

Subscribe to Kevin Spacey alerts

Beau Willimon’s broody political thriller House of Cards was a success in its first season, with Kevin Spacey and co helping to bring streamed television to the forefront of the medium’s appeal.


It was no surprise, given the critical response and the record-breaking Emmy performance, that season two would shortly follow, but Netflix’s confidence in the show seems to have skyrocketed with talk of a third season commission already on the… cards.

"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,” said Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos at the 2013 Film Independent Forum.

Talks for season 3 are currently "in progress right now," according to Deadline.

Former co-executive producer Rick Cleveland plunged the show’ future into doubt at the Vancouver Film Festival when he said the drama "is only going to go a second season and I think that's it. Kevin Spacey likes to do movies and Robin Wright likes to do movies."

Now for some spoilers.

The first season of House of Cards saw an already ruthless competitor on the field of politics, Frank Underwood, systematically move through a hit list of professional rivals. He took them down with intricate schemes, though his disposal of Peter Russo confirmed him as a hardened killer.

In the final scenes of the last episode, we see Rachel Posner approached by Zoe Barnes as the headstrong journalist starts to unravel Underwood’s plot to become Vice President; something he duly achieved. With increased pressure both externally and from within, how will the newly minted VP tackle the threat of a suspicion ex-lover?
