The problem with saying you end it with season 4 is that makes you conclude that Frank will lose the election. I don't think they will say 4 is the last season, Frank will win the election somehow and we will get at least a 5th season.

However, in the big picture I agree if it goes 6+ seasons it's going to be a mess. Each season has not been as good as the previous one.

Just caught the finale for season 3. Amazing! My mom stood up out of her chair when Doug killed her.

My condolences on losing your mother. I always knew Doug was brutally effective, but the ability to kill viewers who displease him means his skills have reached a whole new level.

We finished up with season 3 last week. While I admit season 3 didn't have the drama of twists and turns the first two seasons did, it certainly did end with a bang.

Season 3 - personally, I found it hard work, and pretty boring to be honest.

It definitely has gotten worse, if they don't lift the game for S04, it shou,d finish there. Personally, I'd like a pretty intense finale, and close the shutters on that, else running the show and the characters right into the ground will just degrade the whole series.

Just finished the series. First two seasons were great. Season 3 declined a bit in quality. Still entertaining though.

Let's hope season 4 takes after the first 2. Should be interesting to see if Frank finally gets his comeuppance, and who is responsible for delivering it.

House of Cards Renewed for Season 5, Series Creator to Exit
By Matt Webb Mitovich | Thursday, January 28 2016 | tvline.com

Well ahead of its Season 4 drop date, Netflix’s House of Cards has been renewed for Season 5.

Series creator Beau Willimon, however, will step down as showrunner for the drama’s 2017 cycle.

“Netflix and MRC 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,” Netflix and producer MRC said in a statement. “As an Academy Award-nominated writer, he made his first foray into television and built a riveting and critically acclaimed series, establishing his place in TV history. The producers, cast and crew join us in wishing Beau the best in his next creative adventure.”

With our being in a new Presidential Election Cycle, I have high hopes the writers will take advantage of the timing ..

It seems to me that it's high past time for this show to live up to its name. The whole point of using the same name as the British miniseries was to incidate that Frank's schemes were supposed to come crashing down and trap him in the process, but he just keeps ascending the political ladder. I think it's telling that Netflix renewed Orange is the New Black for multiple seasons but didn't do the same for this. It's past time for Frank to meet his demise already.

Could well be the direction this season is heading.

I just finished watching all of Season 4. It was excellent! Much more like earlier seasons. I watched it all in half a day.

"With the renewal — the longest commitment for any TV series in recent memory".. It's rare for a two season renewal, let alone three. House of Cards is renewed for a fifth season. But obviously it can't go on forever. Very few shows make it past a couple of seasons. But as long as it airs I will continue to enjoy House of Cards. As well as Orange is the New Black.

I just finished season 4 as well. I enjoyed it, except

Spoiler!


That being said, it was still very good. I enjoyed it as much as last season.

Finished it too, and I thought it was way better than last season. I'm also glad they didn't borrow from this presidential election cycle because to me that's just laziness.Having said that the repub candidate was a mixture of Rubio and Pataki,but with no ethnic background. Still much better than how TV land portrays them usually, or the real life frontrunner.
Next season should be real good if they don't eff it up.

There was one scene I remember that seemed like it could have been added later. That seemed to go with the current election stuff. It didn't have any of the characters so it could have been filmed at any time.

I binged watched and finished season 4 today. It was excellent and each episode was like reading the next chapter in a great novel. Spacey, Wright, Kelly and the rest of the cast continued to shine and Ellen Burstyn gave a knockout performance as Claire's mother. The good news is that season 5 has been confirmed but the bad news is that we'll probably have to wait for another year before we see it.

In general, a good season. They'll never get the great stuff back from season 1-2, but it was
nice to feel a similar pace. Why I thought this would be the last season? Can't remember
