Although a release date has yet to be set in stone, it appears as though Netflix's House of Cards has received the green light for a second season.
According to a fan tweet answered by Cards executive producer Beau Willimon, the cast and crew is already in the production process for its next installment.
@samcurrently had posted the following message to Willimon on March 29:
"How far in advance will you plan story lines and plot points before writing? What is the writing process like?
The EP then replied that "Story-lines for season two are ALREADY mapped out. Now we're outlining individual eps and writing scripts."
In another tweet on the same day, Willimon was kind enough to answer another fan's query regarding the House of Cards creative protocol.
@mirrormask313 wrote,"do you prefer that everything is scripted before filming or are you happy with improv?"
Willimon answered by stating that they would "Need to have a good sense of what we're shooting because our sched is tight. But we do revise text in rehearsal sometimes."
iDigital Times reported that while the second season of the hit political series starring Kevin Spacey is a go, they are currently in the midst of sorting out its air date so that it doesn't conflict with its next project Arrested Development.
However, in terms of its competition, the website suspects that Netflix will want to avoid competing with AMC's Breaking Bad, so it will most likely come out in the middle of the fall.
