REJOICE! ‘House of Cards’ has been renewed for Season 3!


I’m so excited!! ‘House of Cards’ season 2 hasn’t even aired, and it was just announced that Netflix has renewed it for Season 3!

Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright’s critically acclaimed political drama returns with 13 episodes on Friday, Feb. 14. What better way to celebrate Valentine’s Day than binge-watching all of season two in one sitting, right?

House of Cards’ first season was a smash hit for Netflix, receiving four Golden Globe nominations (with Wright winning the award for Best Actress in a Drama series), nine Emmy nominations and recently won the awards for best new series at the Writers Guild of America Awards.

In season two, Frank (Spacey) and Claire (Wright) Underwood’s rise to power continues, but it’s not going to be an easy journey: Zoe Barnes (Kate Mara) is hot on Frank’s trail and close to uncovering the truth about his crimes, while Raymond Tusk (Gerald McRaney) is stirring up trouble for Frank and demands he reciprocate political favors or face certain retribution. Plus, Claire will also struggle with the new pressures of the spotlight.

But will the Underwoods live to season three as Netflix ominously teases, “The Underwoods must overcome these dangers—past and present—to avoid losing everything, regardless of collateral damage they leave in their wake.”

Hey, it’s like the new season’s tagline says: “There is but one rule: hunt or be hunted.”

I am obsessed with this show. It is SO FREAKING GOOD! I am literally counting down the days until season 2 starts!!

Watch the trailer for season two, which debuts Friday, Feb. 14, on Netflix, below:

WARNING: The trailer contains spoilers for season 1 – so if you haven’t seen it yet – don’t watch it!

‘House of Cards’ returning in February!


I am OBSESSED with ‘House of Cards’! Here a couple months ago, I locked myself in my bedroom and watched the entire season in about 3 days. It was soooooooo good! If you haven’t seen ‘House of Cards’ – I suggest you lock yourself in your room, abandon your responsibilities and watch it!

Good news is – it’s coming back!

Netflix announced today that the second season of House of Cards will bow Friday, Feb. 14. All 13-episodes of the season that stars Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright will be available for viewers to watch instantly on Netflix.

The political series is from director David Fincher and screenwriters Beau Willimon and Eric Roth. This is what Netflix says is in store for the second season: Francis (Spacey) and Claire (Wright) Underwood continue their ruthless rise to power as threats mount on all fronts. Zoe Barnes (Kate Mara), an up-and-coming reporter and Francis’s former paramour, is inching closer to the truth about his crimes. President Walker’s (Michel Gill) billionaire confidante Raymond Tusk (Gerald McRaney) demands that Francis reciprocate political favors or face retribution. And Claire must confront the increasing glare of the spotlight as it eats away at her and Francis’s once private existence. The Underwood’s must overcome these dangers — past and present — to avoid losing everything, regardless of collateral damage they leave in their wake.

Netflix does not receive streaming data on its original fare. The service reports that it has over 40 million members in more than 40 countries, who apparently enjoy more than one billion hours of TV shows and movies per month, including original series.

Cannot wait!

Kevin Spacey: Gay or straight? He’s still not saying.

Oscar winner Kevin Spacey, long the topic of rumor and innuendo regarding his sexuality, spoke — or refused to speak — about whether or not he is gay, in a new interview with The Daily Beast.

The interviewer, Kevin Sessums, is openly gay, and said the community has long welcomed Spacey as one of them — but asks Spacey why he, a noted gay marriage advocate, has not come out and returned the favor.

“Look, I might have lived in England for the last several years but I’m still an American citizen and I have not given up my right to privacy,” Spacey says, trying to stray from the subject. But when Sessums says that he does not believe one’s sexuality was a private matter, Spacey gets even more defiant.

“People have different reasons for the way they live their lives. You cannot put everyone’s reasons in the same box. It’s just a line I’ve never crossed and never will,” he says. Later, he asserts that not revealing his sexuality publicly does not qualify as living a lie.

Still, Spacey possibly alludes to the answer, saying, “Look, at the end of the day people have to respect people’s differences. I am different than some people would like me to be.”

Kevin Spacey to stage Drama Queens play

Kevin Spacey

Kevin Spacey is to merge the worlds of art and acting – by staging a comedy in which famous sculptures come to life.

The American Beauty actor is to put on a production of Drama Queens, in which renowned works of art – including Andy Warhol’s Brillo Box – are the stars of the show.

They will be activated by remote control – and Spacey and a host of other famous names will provide their voices.

The play is to be staged later this year at the Old Vic theater in London, where Spacey is artistic director.

He says, “It’s been of interest to find a way to merge the art and theatre worlds for some time. Some people may visit art galleries and never go to the theatre, or the other way around. This collaboration brings the two worlds together and shows how much the two artistic fields have in common. There will be some ‘top drawer’ names. It’s yet to be determined who I will voice.”
