Netflix has released the new trailer for the second season of the Kevin Spacey political thriller “House of Cards”. If you thought the political tactics of Frank Underwood in season one were eye opening then wait until you get a glimpse of the chaos in store for season 2. Here’s a bit of background from Netflix on what positions we find the characters in as the season starts.
Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey) has masterfully maneuvered his way into the Vice Presidency, but his ascension faces threats on all fronts…
Investigative reporter Zoe Barnes (Kate Mara) is inching closer to the truth about Frank and Peter Russo (Corey Stoll) and will stop at nothing to break the story.
And Frank’s wife Claire (Robin Wright), the newly appointed Second Lady, must deal with the bright glare of the spotlight and how the intense scrutiny eats away at their once private existence.
If Frank is taking on more power than you know there must be bigger piles of trash for him to wade through. Frank created the perfect political animal in Zoe Barnes last season, and now his Frankenstein monster seems to be turning against him. It won’t take much to start finding connections between Peter Russo’s death and Frank.
Check out the trailer below for season two of “House of Cards”.
Claire Underwood makes Lady MacBeth look like Mrs. Claus. Good to see in the trailer for the new season that Claire hasn’t lost any of her edge. Netflix plans to release the second season to the world on February 14, 2014.
Happy Valentines Day to all the political wonks out there.
