After spending two weeks binge-watching the first season of “House of Cards” with Liam Koopa, I can safely say this: I haven’t love-hated a cast of characters so much since “Mad Men.” The show about some of the worst people in politics is utterly amazing. Thankfully, the premiere of season two on Netflix has been announced as February 14, 2014.
As it is a Netflix Original Series, all 13 episodes will be available instantly beginning that friday for Netflix users.
From director David Fincher (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Social Network), award-winning playwright and Academy Award nominated screenwriter Beau Willimon (Farragut North, The Ides of March) and Academy Award winner Eric Roth (Forrest Gump, Munich, The Insider), this critically acclaimed drama slithers beneath the curtain and through the back halls of greed, sex, love and corruption in modern Washington D.C.
The second season will pick up as Francis and Claire Underwood continue their ruthless rise to power as threats mount on all fronts. Zoe Barnes (Kate Mara), an up-and-coming reporter and Francis’s former paramour, is inching closer to the truth about his crimes. President Walker’s (Michel Gill) billionaire confidante Raymond Tusk (Gerald McRaney) 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.
“House of Cards” stars Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright, who both received Emmy nominations for their performances in the first season.
