Yesterday some Netflix subscribers got a surprise when ten of the thirteen episodes of the upcoming third season of “House of Cards” leaked online early through the service. The series was quickly pulled, but for twenty minutes people were able to access episodes.
Netflix released this statement in regards to the issue: “Due to a technical glitch some Frank Underwood fans got a sneak peak. He’ll be back on Netflix on Feb 27. #nospoilers.”
The show’s official Twitter account also tweeted a wryly amusing message regarding the glitch:
This is Washington. There’s always a leak. All 13 episodes will launch February 27.

Synopses for all thirteen episodes have become available and indicate some of the focus this year will be regarding Russia rather than China which had a similar focus in the second season.
