If you’re a diehard fan of the show, you’ve probably already binge-watched all 13 episodes of season two by now, so to help you deal with your inevitable depression until the premiere of season three, here are a few potential “House of Cards” spinoffs that would make for top-notch television.
WARNING: The following contains spoilers
