When will House of Cards Season 5 be on Netflix?

Our prediction for when House of Cards Season 5 will be released on Netflix! 

The fourth season of House of Cards premieres on Netflix on March 4, 2016. Even before that season is released, we know that House of Cards will be back for a fifth season on Netflix. And, House of Cards fans want to know when they can see the next season of the series!

Before we get to our prediction, we need to acknowledge the fact that House of Cards showrunner Beau Willimon will not be returning for the fifth season. So, because there is some uncertainty there, it could throw off the release date for the fifth season. We just want that out there in the open before we make our prediction.

Now, let’s get to it!

Update 1/20: House of Cards season 5 will premiere May 30.

We are expecting House of Cards Season 5 to be released around the same time of year as the previous four seasons, which would mean the fifth season would premiere on Netflix in February or March 2017.

There have been some rumblings about House of Cards lining up with the United States Presidential Election with a fall season. Based on how hard it is to transition between showrunners and how long it takes to get a season like this ready, there’s almost no chance House of Cards Season 5 is ready to go by the fall.

It would be cool to see the intersection of art and reality in real time, but that’s basically a pipe dream at this point.

So, for right now, enjoy House of Cards Season 4 and expect the fifth season of the series to be back on Netflix in February or March 2017. 

Of course, we’ll keep you posted on if anything changes with that prediction and if we hear any news about the season from Netflix.
