The Netflix original series House of Cards (starring Kevin Spacey, Kate Mara and Robin Wright) will be returning with its second season next month, and the full-length trailer indicates that the sophomore effort looks very promising.
Here’s a synopsis for the upcoming season, which will be released in its entirety to the streaming service on February 14th:
In the second season, Francis (Spacey) and Claire (Wright) Underwood continue their ruthless rise to power as threats mount on all fronts. Zoe Barnes (Mara), an up-and-coming reporter and Francis’s former paramour, is inching closer to the truth about his crimes. President Walker’s (Michel Gill) billionaire confidante Raymond Tusk (Gerald McRaney) demands that Francis reciprocate political favors or face retribution. And Claire must confront the increasing glare of the spotlight as it eats away at her and Francis’s once private existence. The Underwood’s must overcome these dangers — past and present — to avoid losing everything, regardless of collateral damage they leave in their wake.
Six to midnight. Let’s do this, Underwood.
