The reign of “House Of Cards” may be short-lived. According to executive producer Rick Cleveland, the upcoming 13-episode Season 2 is likely to be the show’s last.
Netflix ordered the Kevin Spacey-fronted drama directly to series with a two season commitment, bypassing the typical pilot stage.
“‘House of Cards’ is only going to go a second season and I think that’s it,” Cleveland told Gold Derby. “Kevin Spacey likes to do movies and Robin Wright likes to do movies,” he added.
However, executive producer and creator Beau Willimon had previously tweeted that he hopes to write more seasons.
@andrewbarrett From the BBC when Urquhart first meets Mattie. From ours, I hope my favorite moment is one I’ll write many seasons from now!

At the 2013 Emmy Awards, “House of Cards” picked up three statues and shook up the race. Stars Spacey and Wright both earned nominations in the lead drama categories.
Season 2 is currently in production. Details are scarce, but Oscar winner Jodie Foster will helm an episode.
