Netflix has ordered a third season of award-winning political drama "House of Cards," a week before season 2 is set to debut on the streaming service, a company rep confirmed.
Both Kevin Spacey, who stars as ethically challenged congressman Frank Underwood, and co-star Robin Wright, who plays Underwood's equally devious wife, have signed on for season 3 of the show, according to a source familiar with the production.
"House of Cards" season 2 is set to premiere Feb. 14, 2014, with all 13 episodes available at once worldwide. First season won three Emmy Awards -- David Fincher for directing along with wins in casting and cinematography -- and Wright won a Golden Globe for best actress in a TV drama.
