House of Cards announces two new showrunners

Posted on


The White House is getting some fresh leadership. Netflix has announced two new showrunners, Melissa James Gibson and Frank Pugliese, for its acclaimed series House of Cards.

Gibson and Pugliese are both writers on Cards and have been with the series since season three.

In a statement, the pair said, “We and the rest of the House of Cards writers look forward to the next chapter of the reign of Underwood.”

Creator Beau Willimon decided to step down after the fourth season of Cards, which debuts March 4 on the streaming service. 

“After five years and four seasons, it’s time for me to move on to new endeavors,” he said at the time, “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.”
