House Of Cards Season 3 has dropped early on Netflix.
The political thriller’s third season is due for release later this month, however, subscribers were able to view Season 3 episodes on Wednesday afternoon before the streaming company realized its ‘mistake‘ and pulled the season.
Season 3 is still expected to launch in its entirety on Feb 27.
Update: The official House of Cards twitter account responded to the apparent error with tongue firmly in cheek:
This is Washington. There's always a leak. All 13 episodes will launch February 27.

While a House of Cards rep confirmed that Season 3 will indeed release as scheduled:
“Due to a technical glitch, some Frank Underwood fans got a sneak peak. He’ll be back on Netflix on Feb. 27.”
Netflix has yet to cancel or renew House Of Cards for Season 4.
