Season 5 picks up with Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey) battling for both his political life and marriage to Claire (Robin Wright). In the trailer, Underwood says he knows exactly what the American people need, describing them as “little children.”
“We have to hold their sticky fingers and wipe their filthy mouths,” Underwood continues, and forget term limits — Underwood makes it clear he plans to rule for many years to come. “One nation, Underwood”.
Michael Kelly, Jayne Atkinson, Neve Campbell, Derek Cecil, Paul Sparks and Joel Kinnaman also star.
Melissa James Gibson and Frank Pugliese are showrunners for Season 5 and executive produce with David Fincher, John Mankiewicz, Daniel Minahan, Spacey, Joshua Donen, Dana Brunetti, Eric Roth, Wright, Michael Dobbs and Andrew Davies.
Created for television by Beau Willimon. House Of Cards is produced by Donen/Fincher/Roth and Trigger Street Productions in association with Media Rights Capital for Netflix.
