Great news for House of Cards fans. As many have probably already heard by now, the Netflix original series will be returning in March for a fifth season. However, the shows creator and writer Beau Willimon will not be returning to franchise. Willimon made the announcement via Twitter.
I’m grateful to Netflix and MRC, my fellow executive producers, our two incandescent stars Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright, our talented writers, as well as the incredible cast and crew with whom I’ve had the privilege to work. After five years and four seasons, it’s time for me to move on to new endeavors, but I’m supremely proud of what we’ve built together, wish the show much continued success, and leave it in the hands of a very capable team.
