Before its second season hits small screens on Feb. 14, fans of the Netflix original series “House of Cards” have even more binge-watching to look forward to. Netflix tells the Reliable Source that the show has renewed the political drama for a third season.

Starring Kevin Spacey as corrupt congressman Frank Underwood and Golden Globe-winner Robin Wright as his equally conniving wife, “House of Cards” has made a lasting impression on Washingtonians, including the guy who lives in the White House. Back in December, President Obama joked at a meeting that he wished the government was as “ruthlessly efficient.”

“Man, this guy’s getting a lot of stuff done,” said Obama of Spacey’s character.
