Last week saw the surprise revelation that Netflix's breakout original drama 'House of Cards' might only live through a second season in 2014, but it seems the streaming service has already lined up its next high-profile acquisition.

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?
Netflix has remained considerably tight on spoilers for the second seasons of its returning hits, notably given 'Orange is the New Black' season 2 won't come out from under lockdown until mid 2014.
