Production on the new season will begin in summer with a 2016 premiere.
Other details about the upcoming chapters are sparse, but viewers can expect to see Frank Underwood’s presidential campaign in full swing. No word on whether Claire will be along for the ride.
“House of Cards” is executive produced by David Fincher, Beau Willimon, Joshua Donen, Eric Roth, Kevin Spacey and Dana Brunetti along with Andrew Davies and Michael Dobbs from the eponymous BBC miniseries and novel.
The Netflix original drama is produced by Donen/Fincher/Roth and Trigger Street Productions, Inc. in association with Media Rights Capital for Netflix.
Season three premiered on Feb. 27 to great acclaim, as did the previous installments. “House of Cards” was the first streamed series to be nominated for primetime Emmy awards in 2013, and Spacey took home a Golden Globe in January for his portrayal of scheming politician Frank Underwood.
