This file photo released by Netflix shows Kevin Spacey as Francis Underwood, left, and Robin Wright as Clair Underwood in a scene from Netflix's series, "House of Cards."

"House of Cards" fans got a brief glance at the third season when Netflix accidentally posted its hit series online Wednesday, two weeks early.

The online video company called it a "technical glitch" and pulled the episodes of the political thriller.

The "House of Cards" Twitter account cheekily posted: "This is Washington. There's always a leak. All 13 episodes will launch February 27."
