The wait is over. Season 2 of House of Cards is now available for streaming on Netflix as of 3:01 a.m. ET on February 14.

Netflix (NASDAQ: NFLX) has released all 13 episodes of the second season Friday morning, after anxious fans tried to push the company for an earlier release time.

Season 1 left viewers with a cliffhanger, though TV.com noted that the series didn't "didn't light the world on fire." Despite the fact that House of Cards viewers fell behind Netflix's Arrested Development and Orange is the New Black, the company announced that they renewed a third season of the series on February 4.

Netflix shares soared following the company's fourth quarter earnings beat on January 22. Analyst Doug Anmuth from J.P. Morgan noted the company's net addition of 2.33 million domestic subscribers and sees this growth continuing.

Anmuth wrote, "Netflix expects 4Q's momentum to continue in 1Q and guided to 11 percent year over year growth in net adds, though we think this could prove conservative given the launch of season 2 of House of Cards along with the final 8 episodes of Breaking Bad, both coming in February."

Shares of Netflix closed at $436.55 on Thursday.
