House of Cards, the Netflix original series that took TV series programming by storm, will begin filming its second season in less than two weeks.

Constance Zimmer, who stars in House of Cards as reporter Janine Skorsky, let slip that the Netflix series would be shooting in the near future during a Twitter conversation with actor Ricky Gervais. "We start shooting Season 2 of #houseofcards in 2 weeks," she wrote in the thread.

The second season of the political drama will contain 13 episodes and will be shot in Maryland, in keeping with the series' debut season. Joining the cast, which includes Kevin Spacey, Robin Wright and Kate Mara, will be Facebook co-founder Sean Parker on a three-episode arc playing a venture capitalist. Incidentally, Justin Timberlake played him in The Social Network.

Mara, who plays reporter Zoe Barnes on the show, has remained tightlipped about the upcoming season. "I sort of know where the story's going to be heading, but it would be silly for me to share because that would ruin a lot of things," she told Zap2it last month. "I'm just as excited to start this season as I was to start the last one. It will be an interesting thing to see where it goes and how it plays out."
