Last week, Netflix announced that Season 2 of House of Cards will debut in its entirety Friday, February 14. While that announcement came with a brief trailer, the streaming service released the full trailer today, chocked full of compelling new footage from this political drama series, starring Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright as Francis and Claire Underwood.
The second season of the Netflix original series, from Media Rights Capital, House of Cards premieres Friday, February 14, 2014. All 13-episodes of the season starring Academy Award winner Kevin Spacey (Horrible Bosses, American Beauty, The Usual Suspects) and Golden Globe nominee Robin Wright (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Forrest Gump), who both received Emmy nominations for their performances in the first season, will be available for members to watch instantly in all territories where Netflix is available.
From director David Fincher (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Social Network), award-winning playwright and Academy Award nominated screenwriter Beau Willimon (Farragut North, The Ides of March) and Academy Award winner Eric Roth (Forrest Gump, Munich, The Insider), this critically-acclaimed drama slithers beneath the curtain and through the back halls of greed, sex, love and corruption in modern Washington D.C.
In the second season, Francis (Spacey) and Claire (Wright) Underwood continue their ruthless rise to power as threats mount on all fronts. Zoe Barnes (Kate Mara, American Horror Story), an up-and-coming reporter and Francis's former paramour, is inching closer to the truth about his crimes. President Walker's (Michael Gill, The Good Wife) billionaire confidante Raymond Tusk (Gerald McRaney, Southland) 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 Underwoods must overcome these dangers -- past and present -- to avoid losing everything, regardless of collateral damage they leave in their wake.
