Good news for those who think current TV shows stay on far past their welcome, or bad news for those who think "House Of Cards" still has yet to hit its peak, but, according to one person close to the series, the currently in production second season could very well be its last.

Last night TV's finest -- which these days tends to include some of movie's finest too -- gathered for the Emmy Awards, while the the rest of us stayed glued to "Breaking Bad" and to some extent, the series finale of "Dexter." Either way, both options were better than that dubstep dance routine to "Breaking Bad" on the awards show. And once the jokes were over, and tributes were finished, some statues were handed out honoring some fine folks.

Of the many excellent things about this year's "House Of Cards" — besides being produced by David Fincher and penned by "Ides Of March" writer Beau Willimon, not to mention the stellar cast — was the array of directorial talent behind the camera. After Fincher set the tone with the first two episodes, he passed the reins to some seasoned veterans including James Foley ("Glengarry Glen Ross," 3 episodes), Carl Franklin ("One False Move," Devil In A Blue Dress," 2 episodes) and even Joel Schumacher knocked out a couple solid entries too. But things are changing a bit for the second season.

Unlike the movies, which do operate on a January-December basis when it comes to awards consideration, the TV season is a slightly different proposition. With ratings dipping in the summer, new shows tend to be unveiled in September or early fall, and are usually wrapping up by May. The rise of cable networks like FX and HBO has staggered this more, but the Emmys taking place in September tends to mean that the season has a more definitive end at this time of year.

DVD Review: Missing ‘House Of Cards’? Excellent ‘Borgen’ Season 1 Will Keep You Satisfied

If it isn’t already happening, Danish television is about to have a moment. AMC’s remake of the “The Killing” was canceled, swiftly brought back, and is now shooting its third season. HBO is in the midst of remaking the popular series “The Bridge” and NBC already snagged the rights to the political drama “Borgen.” It’s arguably the hottest of the three shows at the moment -- Stephen King named it as the best television he watched 2012 (the aforementioned Danish shows above made the top ten as well) -- and coming in the wake of Netflix’s tremendously well received “House Of Cards,” those looking to slake their thirst on political drama would be highly recommended to track down “Borgen,” which is arguably even more dense and layered than David Fincher and Kevin Spacey’s program.

Interview: Robin Wright On The Texas Hall Of Fame Awards, 'House of Cards,' The 'Dragon Tattoo' Sequel & Her Amazing Hair

There are a lot of twists on the new David Fincher-produced Netflix series "House of Cards," which follows a devious, BBQ-loving congressman (Kevin Spacey) who looks to exact revenge upon the President of the United States after being instrumental in his election (and then passed over for a high profile cabinet position). But no one could have possibly imagined how wonderful Robin Wright, who plays Spacey's wife (in a role that oscillates between Martha Stewart, Hillary Clinton and Lady Macbeth), really is. She's sleek and sexy and absolutely lethal, but sympathetic and occasionally loving too. And the accomplishment hasn't gone unnoticed. The night before the South by Southwest Film Festival kicks off, Wright will be honored at the Texas Hall Of Fame Awards, which is put on by the Austin Film Society (Wright was born in Dallas). We got to talk to Wright about "House of Cards," the Texas Hall of Fame Awards, where the next "Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" is and, most importantly, her hair.

If you’re anything like us, the last several weeks have been tinged with political intrigue, Robin Wright, and a massive helping of Freddy’s BBQ as Netflix’s “House of Cards” laid out its first season. Of course, the Kevin Spacey-led series snagged a boatload of publicity upon release, but whether that would turn into viewers proved another question entirely, and luckily the initial outlook is positive.

A little clarification on THR's David Fincher/"20,000 Leagues Under The Sea" report. Yes, Disney is debating whether to shoot the 3D tentpole in Australia and the trade reports there are lots of financial incentives to do so, but Fincher did his location scouting (and met with Aussie federal arts minister Simon Crean) six months ago. And yes, Brad Pitt is not set to star in the film, but that's not because this deal isn't done. Sources tell us Pitt officially passed on the David Fincher project after initially agreeing to take the lead about a month ago (the always finicky Pitt strikes again).

Ten days ago, Beau Willimon, David Fincher, Kevin Spacey and Netflix hoped to change the future of television with "House of Cards," the first high-profile series to be produced by, and air exclusively on, the streaming platform. A remake of the late 1980s BBC miniseries (itself based on the book by Michael Dobbs), the 13-part first season of "House Of Cards" was adapted by "The Ides Of March" co-writer Beau Willimon who developed the series for Netflix. Executive-produced by Fincher, who also directed the first two episodes, with Spacey leading a cast that also includes Robin Wright, Corey Stoll, Kate Mara nad many more.
