Netflix announced on Thursday that House of Cards has been renewed for a 5th season. However, the creator and show runner Beau Willimon will not return and be part of the exciting events of President Frank Underwood.
Season 4, which will focus on what will happen to the president as he launches a campaign for re-election, is set to release on March 4th. Beau Willimon has written more than 20 episodes to date and has played a huge part in the show becoming internationally popular.
The streaming service Netflix has not yet announced a replacement for the Oscar-nominated writer but House of Cards does have a large team of executive producers. This includes director David Fincher, who could potentially step into the role.
Both fans and Netflix welcome another series, so it looks like we can look forward to both this year’s season and the following one in 2017. There is often some debate over whether a show will continue, but seeing as House of Cards has proven to be a big success, there must be high hopes for season four.
As we all probably know, House of Cards stars Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright and has been an instant awards contender. Willimon created the series by adapting the BBC mini series of the same name. Even though this talented writer will not be returning for the 2017 series, many will be overjoyed by the news of the continuation of the show.
