On resuming the fiction by Francis Underwood House of Cards, hike the greasy pole of Political Power in Washington D.C

Constance Zimmer said in a tweet today that, " We Start Shooting Season 2 of House of Cards in Two Weeks". The final former Ricky Gervais and the Gareth Keenan twitter account played by Mackenzie Crook.

The season 2 of The House of Card will have 13 episodes long like the first season. Officially its not mentioned about, if season 2 will all be put up on Netflix as like the season 1.


One thing got confirmed that, the show shooting in Maryland same like season 1, star Stacey don't have to go far to get to D,C for the White House Correspondents Dinner on April 27. As a guest, Spacey and co-star Robin wright and Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos are going.

 The new series digs deep into politics and highlights "the back halls of greed, sex, love and corruption in modern Washington D.C." Joining Spacey and Wright in the seedy underbelly of our nation's capitol will be Kate Mara, Corey Stoll, Kristen Connolly, Michael Kelly and Sakina Jaffrey.

Fincher only directs the first two episodes, but James Foley (Glengarry GlenRoss), Joel Schumacher (Batman & Robin), Charles McDougall (The Office), Carl Franklin (Out of Time) and Alan Coulter (Boardwalk Empire) direct the rest of season 1. That's some great talent behind the camera, and it should key audiences into the fact that this will likely have some solid comedy along with the hard-hitting political drama. Spacey is also executive producing the show with Dana Brunetti (who produced The Social Network) and his Trigger Street Productions banner. Fincher, Willimon, Spacey and Roth are executive producing as well.

Netflix will debut all 13 episodes of House of Cards through their Watch Instant service (available in North America, United Kingdom, Ireland, Latin America and Scandinavia)

Netflix's Chief Content Officer says, "In offering the entire season at once, Netflix is giving viewers complete control over how and when they watch the show." It's not surprising since this is the same way Arrested Development will be rolled out online as well. It will certainly change the dynamic of water cooler talk about these shows.

In addition, there's no stress about ratings with a release like this, and Netflix already has a second season ordered, which is scheduled to begin production next spring. In the meantime, stay tuned as a trailer for the series will likely arrive sometime before the end of the year.
