Season two hasn't even premiered yet, and Netflix is already talking about the future of their first original hit series, House of Cards: According to Vulture, the Chief Content Officer of the video streaming service, Ted Sarandos, revealed during a keynote speech for Film Independent this past weekend that a third season of the political thriller is very possible despite the fact that the show only had 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," Sarandos said, before later telling Deadline that "talks are in progress right now...so stay tuned."
This is great news, considering that previously, former House of Cards executive producer Rick Cleveland was saying that the series would wrap up after season two—and when no new deal with Netflix was announced, it only seemed to back up those statements.
Season two is expected to premiere on Netflix at some point early next year.
