House Of Cards

Netflix

Netflix accidentally giveth, and Netflix promptly taketh away. So is the story of House of Cards season three.

Twitter lit up after somebody (who are you, person who first discovered House of Cards season three was released early?!) noticed the third season of the award-winning Netflix political drama was online weeks before its scheduled Friday, Feb. 27 premiere date.

We saw approximately 10-15 seconds of the new season and SPOILER ALERT: Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey) died. Just kidding. There was a presidential motorcade. That's all we saw.

Leaks are common in the entertainment industry, but rarely by the company producing the series. The show's official Twitter account responded to the news with a tongue-in-cheek tweet: "This is Washington. There's always a leak. All 13 episodes will launch February 27."

And Netflix released an official statement on the accidental early release, telling E! News, "Due to a technical glitch some Frank Underwood fans got a sneak peak. He'll be back on Netflix on Feb 27."  

Spacey will return in the acclaimed series as President Underwood opposite Robin Wright as his first lady, Claire Underwood.

House of Cards officially debuts on Friday, Feb. 27 on Netflix.
