House of Cards viewers can look forward to enjoying a season 3 installment of the Washington DC political drama. Netflix confirms that it is renewing the series, picking up a third season after months of negotiations. The announcement about the House of Cards season 3 deal comes one week ahead of its season 2 premiere which starts Feb 14.

According to The Hollywood Reporter Wednesday (Feb. 5), third season production is slated to be underway soon on a show that was started out as a 26-episode commitment. “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,” Netflix chief content officer, Ted Sarandos said in October.

Debuting one year ago, House of Cards serves as Netflix’s first original series and has earned nine Emmy nominations, three Emmy wins, along with four Golden Globe nominations. In December, cast member Robin Wright won a Golden Globe Award in the category of Best Actress in a Television Series Drama.

The unprecedented win marks the show’s first major acting award for an online-only web television series. "I think if you look at the original House of Cards, there was a natural third season, and we could go well beyond that," Sarandos said.

House of Cards is an adaptation of a BBC miniseries based on a Michael Dobbs novel of the same title. Created by Beau Willimon, it stars Kevin Spacey who also serves as executive producer alongside David Fincher. Check out the trailer for next week's season 2 premiere in this article.
