Frank Underwood returns to tell the American people exactly what's best for them in a new trailer for House of Cards Season 5. Kevin Spacey's iconic character returns in this all new season, revealing in this trailer that Americans are like little children, who need to be taught right from wrong, and they need to be told what they need and what they want. Apparently one of Frank Underwood's plans for this election is to abolish term limits, since he reveals that he plans on being president for much more than just 8 years.
The trailer debuted on Netflix's YouTube channel, which features Kevin Spacey's Frank Underwood taking to his wife Claire (Robin Wright) about what the American people need, along with some explosive footage from the new season. The trailer ends with Frank Underwood teasing that he'll be re-elected in 2020, 2024, 2028, 2032 and 2036 for 20 years of an Underwood presidency. Of course, in real life, the U.S. President is only allowed two terms in office, but one of the plot lines this season is abolishing this idea, which would allow Underwood the longest tenure for any U.S. president.
The fifth season of the critically acclaimed Emmy nominated drama House of Cards premieres Tuesday, May 30, 2017 .
