Netflix: House of Cards season 4 is officially happening
House of Cards, the political thriller starring Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright, has been confirmed for a fourth season return on streaming service Netflix.
The Golden Globe-winning drama will make a comeback next year, with both lead actors expected to return.
The show, based on a book and a BBC miniseries of the same name, put a new twist on the binge-watching trend in streaming television when Netflix made all the season episodes available at once.
The news of season four was announced via the show’s official Twitter account, which posted a photo reading “Season 4 Coming 2016’ above an inverted American flag. “I will leave a legacy. #Underwood2016,” the caption read.
Fans of the hit series will have been expecting a renewal, with showrunner Beau Willimon admitting to have been “secretly writing for months” with his team.
Production on season four is expected to begin this summer.
House of Cards began in 2013 and became the first web-only series in history to win an Emmy Award that year.
