“House of Cards” fans rejoice – Netflix has released its latest trailer for the upcoming season of its original political drama, “House of Cards,” and it’s far more telling than a single puff of smoke.
In the theatrical-length trailer, Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey) is officially sworn in as Vice President of the United States as questions arise about his involvement in the death of former Congressman Peter Russo (D-Pa.). Season Two also features Robin Wright as Underwood’s calculating wife, Claire, and Kate Mara as aspiring reporter Zoe Barnes.
“One heartbeat away from the presidency and not a single vote in my name. Democracy is so overrated,” Underwood says in one of his classic asides during the trailer.
