Netflix in Talks for a Third Season of 'House of Cards' Deadline
Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos says the online streaming company is in talks about a third season of "House of Cards," Deadline.com reports.
"Our intent is that the show keep going for sure,” he said. Sarandos was delivering the keynote address at the Film Independent Forum on Saturday, the piece adds.
Sarandos said: "It was a 26-episode commitment. It was not our intent that it just run for two seasons."
The story notes, "Former 'House of Cards' EP Rick Cleveland said last month that the series would wrap up after its second season. The lack of any new deal announcement despite the breakout 'HoC' proved to be for Netflix fueled speculation about its demise after the current two-season deal was up. The second season of the Kevin Spacey starring series, which is presently in its last week of production, is expected to debut on Netflix early next year."
