The second season of Netflix’s original series House of Cards will premiere on Friday February 14th, when the streaming service will make all 13 episodes from the show’s second season available to subscribers in all territories where Netflix has a presence – including the United States, Canada, the UK and Ireland.
Created by Beau Willimon, House of Cards follows Francis Underwood (Spacey), the House Majority Whip. Underwood is the politician’s politician – masterful, beguiling, charismatic and ruthless. He and his equally ambitious wife Claire (Wright) will stop at nothing to ensure their ascendancy. The drama series is produced by Trigger Street Productions & Media Rights Capital and stars Kevin Spacey (Horrible Bosses), Robin Wright (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo), Kate Mara (American Horror Story), Gerald McRaney (Southland), Mahershala Ali (Treme), Sebastian Arcelus (Person of Interest), Kristen Connolly (The Cabin in the Woods), Nathan Darrow (Rigged), Sakina Jaffrey (Definitely Maybe), Michael Kelly (The Adjustment Bureau) and Molly Parker (Deadwood).
In the show’s second season Francis and Claire Underwood continue their ruthless rise to power as threats mount on all fronts. Zoe Barnes, an up-and-coming reporter and Francis’s former paramour, is inching closer to the truth about his crimes. President Walker’s billionaire confidante Raymond Tusk 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.
