Netflix is bringing ‘House of Cards’ back for S5 in 2017

by John_A

The Frank Underwood 2016 campaign doesn’t kick off until March 4th, but Netflix is already announcing that its flagship original series House of Cards will be back again in 2017. There is a major change in store for season five, as it will be without creator, writer and showrunner Beau Willimon. As Willimon’s Twitter profile explains, he’s been working on HoC for the last five years, so it could be that this is just to take some time off.
Still, around Engadget’s virtual offices we didn’t find the last season or two as exciting as when it debuted, so it could be time for some new blood at the top. Netflix and the show’s production company, Media Rights Capital have not announced a replacement yet, saying they “owe a tremendous debt of gratitude to Beau Willimon for his strong narrative vision for House of Cards over the show’s first four seasons.”

With the show’s creator leaving, are you still in for House of Cards season five?
