'House of Cards' renewed for Season 3 on Netflix

house-of-cards-season-3-renewal.jpg"House of Cards" has been renewed for a third season before its second season has even premiered on Netflix, a rep for the streaming site confirms to Zap2it.

The series was initially pitched as a two-series package, but there has been chatter about a Season 3 in recent months and now it's official. Details about number of episodes or a premiere date have not been released, but both Season 1 and Season 2 have 13 episodes and spring premieres, so it's a safe bet that Season 3 will also have 13 episodes and premiere in spring 2015.

The critically-acclaimed series received nine Emmy and four Golden Globe nominations, with star Robin Wright winning for best actress in a drama. It also recently won the Writers Guild of America award for best new series. Wright tells The Wrap that Season 3 begins shooting soon and when asked if she could see the series going for multiple years after that, she says, "Sure, bring it on."

Season 2 premieres in just over a week, launching Friday, Feb. 14 at midnight PT on Netflix. To catch up before it comes back, check out our daily recaps of where the show left off.
