Netflix has announced a February 14th premiere date for the second season of its acclaimed original drama "House of Cards". Like the first season, the Kevin Spacey-led political drama will drop on the service all at once. The SVOD service has dropped both a silent teaser trailer and a fresh synopsis for the new season which you can see below:
In the second season, Francis (Kevin Spacey) and Claire (Robin Wright) Underwood continue their ruthless rise to power as threats mount on all fronts. Zoe Barnes (Kate 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.
Mahershala Ali ("Treme"), Sebastian Arcelus ("Person of Interest"), Kristen Connolly ("The Cabin in the Woods"), Nathan Darrow ("Rigged"), Sakina Jaffrey ("Definitely Maybe"), Michael Kelly ("The Adjustment Bureau") and Molly Parker ("Deadwood") also star.
