It’s the show that changed the Emmy’s forever, allowing Netflix to pick up three awards, and put streaming-only series on the map. Now Netflix has confirmed that ‘House of Cards’ will return for a second season on February 14, 2014.
The company announced the return earlier today (Wednesday) with a short teaser video on Twitter. The 30-sec clip offers the date 02/14/14 to get fans excited. Kevin Spacey will return as US Representative Francis J. Underwood, all 13 episodes of season one were released simultaneously. Season two will do the same with its 13 episodes.
In the second season, Francis (Spacey) and Claire (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 Underwoods must overcome these dangers — past and present — to avoid losing everything, regardless of collateral damage they leave in their wake.
