EXCLUSIVE: The sound of shovel hitting dirt is unmistakable – like a car crash blocks away. Combine it with a calculated camera shot, and fans of Netflix’s House Of Cards will be transported to the Season 3 finale so many months ago (depending on your bingeing habits). This teasing promo for Season 4 of the D.C.-set series doesn’t do much more than further whet appetites, but it does convey the show’s focus on the re-election bid of President Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey). Meanwhile, his fallible but ever-loyal Chief of Staff does the dirty work, as usual. Said actor Mike Kelly of the clip above: “What do you mean? I can neither confirm nor deny that’s even Doug Stamper.”
The fourth news cycle, er, season of House Of Cards premieres March 4 on Netflix — a few days before the final scheduled Democratic Debate. Chances are roughly 100% that Underwood is plotting how to weasel his way onto that stage in Miami. Don’t bet against him. In the meantime, check out the latest promo above.
