‘House of Cards’ is preparing for its anticipated second season with a new trailer and key art. The Emmy Award-winning drama series is set to return for another season on Friday, February 14 with 13 all-new episodes on Netflix.
The On Demand Internet streaming website has released the following synopsis for the second season of ‘House of Cards,’ which is based on the BBC miniseries of the same name:
From Academy Award nominated screenwriter Beau Willimon, 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 (Kevin Spacey) and Claire (Robin 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 (Michel 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 Underwood’s must overcome these dangers — past and present — to avoid losing everything, regardless of collateral damage they leave in their wake.
