Netflix says House of Cards season four is coming in 2016

New, 31 comments

Netflix's flagship show, House of Cards, is getting another season. The streaming service confirmed today that the show, which stars Kevin Spacey as the grasping and morally flexible Frank Underwood, would return in 2016. According to Deadline, both Spacey and Robin Wright will return to the show, which will be filmed in and around Baltimore.

Seasons one and two of House of Cards were tight and tense, and helped Netflix score its first major award, a Golden Globe for Robin Wright's performance on the show. Spacey, too, excelled as the fourth-wall breaking Underwood, but the third season — which arrived on Netflix in February this year — was criticized for being meandering and aimless. Perhaps running for office alongside a real-world presidential election will inject some fire back into Frank Underwood's belly.
