Netflix has been on quite the roll over the past year, with shows like Orange is the New Black, Hemlock Grove, Arrested Development, and of course House of Cards. House of cards in particular has received extremely positive critical response, and made history this year in being the first ever “web-based” series to win an Emmy. Both Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright were brilliant in the first season of the show.
Now Netflix has announced that the much-anticipated second season of House of Cards will drop on 2.14.14, with all 13 episodes available day one for your marathoning pleasure. Netflix released the following synopsis for season two:
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.
Stay tuned for more news and a review within the first week of the second season’s release in just a few short months!
