House of Cards just debuted its fifth season, but will there be a sixth? Recently, showrunners Frank Pugliese and Melissa James Gibson spoke with The Hollywood Reporter about the future of the Netflix TV show.
The political drama follows Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey), an ambitious and manipulative politician who becomes President of the United States. The cast also includes Robin Wright, Michael Kelly, Jayne Atkinson, Neve Campbell, Derek Cecil, Paul Sparks, and Joel Kinnaman.
Speaking to THR, Pugliese said there have been talks about how House of Cards will end but there’s no specific end date in mind:
You could say specifically there’s probably been several ideas of where it could end. There was nothing absolute or nothing agreed upon where it could end. Conversations we had from Beau and before were just some thematic promises and places the show might go thematically, or possibilities that the show had. But the show had so many. To a certain extent, we’re kind of delivering on conversations that were had, but it’s open to possibilities about where it could go.”
James Gibson added that the season five finale could function as a series finale if Netflix does not renew the show for a sixth season:
It has to feel like an organic ending and an organic payoff to the arc of the season and in this case, I think you could argue that it really could go either way, so we were happy to hopefully leave the viewers wanting more.”
What do you think? Are you a fan of House of Cards? Do you want a sixth season?
I think having a sixth season could be very intriguing given that Claire is president and new actors coming on board. Netflix doesn’t have many shows that are interesting like House if Cards. So tired of the Marvel shows!!!
I really love this series, really very much, and it would have been a shame for it to be cancelled/ended. It’s not like it’s not popular either. On the principle of it, I feel it is greatly unfair to punish Spacey’s co-workers from a good source of revenue, their livelihood, and the public, of which I am part, from such a quality a show they like. As talented as he is/was, that Spacey was pulled out is most fine and appropriate. Predators have to understand that they don’t have and keep on having the control on everybody’s lives around them.… Read more »
I would really like to see the show to continue
Yes. I want to see the season 7. Good show.
I’m young ass adult don’t normal like type of show but really good politics show I hope never ends it the best Netflix show seen.
I want another season.
I’ve really enjoyed the show, BUT those that deserve it, and we know who they are, should get their come-uppance!!!! It just can’t end without justice prevailing and good overcoming evil, or I will have considered all of this a huge loss of time and commitment to the show! Thanks…
