The world is already looking forward to "House of Cards" Season 5 airing on Netflix early next year but it looks like Kevin Spacey's political drama has hit a huge speed bump. There are speculations that the series is getting moved back to a summer premiere due to several reshoots of episodes that have already been flimed.

The numerous reshoots are not the only reason why "House of Cards" Season 5 is getting pushed back to mid-2017. It is possible that Frank Underwood's series will be delayed in favor of other Netflix shows like "Iron Fist" and "Stranger Things" Season 2.

'House Of Cards' Season 5 Delayed Due To Several Reshoots?

Some episodes for "House of Cards" Season 5 are still being filmed, but there are speculations that reshoots are being done for certain scenes. Although the reason behind the reshoots are unclear, some believe that this could lead to a really long delay in the Netflix show's return next year.

It's a truly depressing thought, but the delay in the "House of Cards" Season 5 air date could have another factor. The next chapter of Frank Underwood's story might be sidelined for Netflix's new heavyhitter "Stranger Things" Season 2 and the newest addition to the Marvel series roster "Iron Fist" starring Finn Jones.

'Iron Fist' And 'Stranger Things' Season 2 To Premiere Ahead Of 'House Of Cards' Season 5?

GamenGuide has previously reported on the possibility that "House of Cards" Season 5 will get moved back to summer so "Stranger Things" Season 2 could air in early 2017. Netflix might also decide to put the focus on "Iron Fist", as it will be the final Marvel solo series that will introduce a member of The Defenders. Unfortunately, this could mean that the Kevin Spacey drama will return in late June or early July next year.
