Earlier this month, producer Rick Cleveland, speaking at the Vancouver International Film Festival, caused a bit of a minor stir when he suggested that Netflix's award-winning political series “House of Cards" wasn't going to last past a second season. Why? He claimed stars Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright liked making movies too much to stay locked into a TV schedule. But it turns out, Cleveland was hardly an authority to speak on behalf of the show.

House Of Cards Kevin Spacey

Earlier this month, producer Rick Cleveland, speaking at the Vancouver International Film Festival, caused a bit of a minor stir when he suggested that Netflix's award-winning political series “House of Cards" wasn't going to last past a second season. Why? He claimed stars Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright liked making movies too much to stay locked into a TV schedule. But it turns out, Cleveland was hardly an authority to speak on behalf of the show.

As Today found out, Cleveland was actually fired from "House Of Cards" after the first season, so needless to say, his opinion suddenly carries far less weight. And now, he's actually been clearly refuted by execs at Netflix. The company's Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos delivered the keynote over the weekend at the 9th Annual Film Independent Forum and cleared the air about "House Of Cards."

“Our intent is that the show keep going for sure,” he said. “It was a 26-episode commitment. It was not our intent that it just run for two seasons.” Speaking with Deadline later he revealed, “Talks are in progress right now, so stay tuned.” 

So basically, don't freak just yet, there may still be plenty more "House Of Cards" to come. Watch Sarandos' complete keynote speech below.
