So, it’s likely that Netflix’s House of Cards will get a Season 4, following the release of Season 3 a few weeks ago, but it hasn’t been confirmed.
No Season 4 date has been set yet.
Series creator Beau Willimon spoke with IndieWire about the upcoming season, and the article says:
So I now have to ask you the obvious question: I don’t think there’s been an official announcement yet, but did you write Season 3 with the assumption there’d be a Season 4?
You’re absolutely right. There has not been a Season 4 announcement yet.
That’s a really good answer to that question.
I think, though, anyone that’s come to the end of Season 3 looks at that ending, especially that last scene, and sees another season’s worth of drama right away.
Well, by the time you come to the end of Season 3, if we’ve done our job, you have some questions and probably want them answered. But the world does not know yet if those questions will be answered or not.
Very well done. Very well done.
I write a show that takes place in Washington, for God’s sake. I have to know how to deflect a question with some degree of skill.
He also told The Hollywood Reporter about the relationship between Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey) and Claire (Robin Wright).
“We had a lot of challenges, not just in terms of what obstacles Frank will face, but also what is the nature of this union between Francis and Claire? Every season we’ve seen them change, evolve, grow deeper, run into conflicts,” he told the website.
The website gives its prediction for Frank after he survived the Iowa Caucus. It predicts: “Frank has survived scandals and international crisis. But can a president seeking election survive divorce? House of Cards pulled a fast one this season with Doug’s apparent death in the season two finale turning out not to be true. But it seems pretty clear that Frank will have to deal with being separated from Claire next year. Perhaps more important than public opinion is how he will operate as a solo agent without Claire as a teammate.”
