Netflix caused a bit of a surprise this week in announcing that their original 'Turbo' TV series would mark the first of its original programming to not debut all at once, but its prized 'House of Cards' needn't worry about an interrupted return. The Kevin Spacey-Robin Wright political thriller has set its official season 2 return for 2014, along with a new teaser for the smoky future ahead!
House of Cards
Given Netflix's relatively green status as a host of original "TV" content, we were surprised to learn that Kevin Spacey Emmy-nom 'House of Cards' might have come to an end after its second season, with the futures of other Netflix Originals equally uncertain. Now, Netflix exec Ted Sarandos has opened up on the future of the series, along with the lifespans for fellow series 'Orange Is the New Black' and 'Arrested Development.'
A few weeks ago we heard the distressing news that Netflix's 'House of Cards' season 2 would likely end the series altogether, given leading star Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright's pressing film careers, but it seems the breakout political drama may have hope after all. Netflix brass now believe a third season to be in the 'Cards,' with negotiations already underway.
Admittedly, the Netflix model remains something of a mystery in its longevity, but it seems the Emmy-nominated 'House of Cards' may face its end much sooner than we all expected. Season 2 has been confirmed to premiere in 2014, but might it prove the last we see of the Kevin Spacey-Robin Wright political drama?
'Elysium' may not have proven the strongest showcase for cinema icon Jodie Foster, while one her better-received works of the year may have gone entirely unnoticed. Following a low-key revelation that Foster directed the 'Orange is the New Black' episode "Lesbian Request Denied," we've learned that the 'Silence of the Lambs' star will soon return behind Netflix cameras to helm an episode of the eagerly-anticipated 'House of Cards' season 2!
The 2013 Emmy nominations have arrived and at first glance, it's more of the same. Of course 'Breaking Bad,' 'Mad Men,' 'Homeland' and 'Downton Abbey' seem to be dominating the drama category! Of course '30 Rock,' 'Louie' and 'Veep' are contenders in the comedy category! However, the big surprise with this year's nominations is that one of the most nominated shows wasn't even on TV at all.
Netflix has its hands full these days with the release of its latest original series 'Hemlock Grove,' as well as the imminent debut of new 'Arrested Development' episodes. Though, that didn't stop the cast and crew of the streaming network's breakout original series 'House of Cards' from getting together to discuss the upcoming season, as well as the Netflix attitude that made the series the memorable drama it became. Preview 'House of Cards' past and future inside!
Just yesterday we were wondering what had become of FX's Guillermo del Toro-helmed pilot 'The Strain,' after HBO announced their own del Toro project 'Monster,' and now we have our answer. 'House of Cards' breakout Corey Stoll has been tapped as the lead in the project, but will the vampire series move forward beyond its pilot order? Hear what FX has to say about a live-action 'The Strain' inside!
Even with Netflix soon to release its latest original thriller 'Hemlock Grove' this Friday, and the monumental release of 'Arrested Development' season 4 to follow, we're eager to see the inevitable release of 'House of Cards' season 2. Late last week we learned that production would soon begin on the first of 13 all-new episodes, but now we're hearing one character will have a majorly increased presence. Find out who 'House of Cards' will thrust in to the spotlight inside!
While few could argue that Netflix's unusual model of original content has proven successful in the wake of political thriller 'House of Cards,' soon to soar even higher with the release of 'Arrested Development' season 4, we can't help wondering how additional seasons will role out. The first 13 episodes of 'House of Cards' debuted all at once, with a second season already guaranteed, but when will 'House of Cards' season 2 begin filming?
