With less than two weeks to go before its second season gets dropped en masse on Netflix, ‘House of Cards’ has been renewed for a third season.
The original series by the streaming service provider has become Netflix’s flagship show, racking up acclaim and awards, including directing, cinematography, and acting.
Starring Kevin Spacey as savvy, manipulative, and oh so charming Congressman Frank Underwood, ‘House of Cards’ first impressive season follows the South Carolina native as he seeks power and vengeance in the seedy District of Columbia. Robin Wright stars as his wife, and won a Golden Globe earlier this year for her portrayal of Claire Underwood, an equally conniving and politically-minded Washington player.
Initially packaged as a two-season deal, based on the success of the first year and the anticipation of the second, this doesn’t come as too much a surprise that another season has been ordered.
