HOUSE OF CARDS to Crumble After Two Seasons?
Netflix's HOUSE OF CARDS may have netted nine Emmy nominations - but the series' end may be in sight.
At the Vancouver International Film Festival last week, executive producer Rick Cleveland was more than open with the show's future, telling GoldDerby:
"'House of Cards' is only going to go a second season and I think that's it. Kevin Spacey likes to do movies and Robin Wright likes to do movies."
Cleveland also made it clear that he didn't believe CARDS' online distribution model worked in its favor, claiming that its attempts to garner media coverage ahead of the Emmys didn't quite pan out as effectively as expected.
Showrunner Beau Willimon previously Tweeted in August that he was hopeful for additional seasons, and more than willing to stick by Spacey and co.
Production on the second season of CARDS kicked off last April - though Netflix has yet to comment on its chances of a season three pick-up.
Based on the BBC miniseries of the same name, this wicked political drama slithers beneath the curtain and through the back halls of greed, sex, love and corruption in modern Washington D.C. An uncompromising exploration of power, ambition and the American way, "House of Cards" orbits Francis Underwood (Kevin Spacey), the House Majority Whip. Underwood is the politician's politician - masterful, beguiling, charismatic and ruthless. He and his equally ambitious wife Claire (Robin Wright) stop at nothing to ensure their ascendancy. In addition to Spacey and Wright the series also stars Kate Mara ("American Horror Story"), Corey Stoll ("Midnight in Paris"), Kristen Connolly ("The Cabin in the Woods"), Michael Kelly ("The Adjustment Bureau") and Sakina Jaffrey ("Definitely Maybe"). The first season of "House of Cards" is executive produced by David Fincher, Beau Willimon, Joshua Donen, Eric Roth, Kevin Spacey, Dana Brunetti, Andrew Davies, Michael Dobbs and John Melfi. The series is produced by Donen/Fincher/Roth and Trigger Street Productions, Inc. in association with Media Rights Capital.
