House Of Cards Returns
Francis Underwood starts plotting again in February

04 December 2013  |  Written by James White  |  Source: Netflix

February 14 is when thoughts traditionally turn to love, bemoaning the lack thereof or complaining about the skyrocketing cost of flowers and chocolate. But for those who enjoyed the first series of Netflix’s updated House Of Cards, it’ll be their chance to watch Kevin Spacey’s Francis Underwood get back to the scheming and double-dealing at which he is so adept. There’s even a teaser online to celebrate the occasion. 

Picking up where the first series left off, Francis and wife Claire (Robin Wright) Underwood continue their ruthless rise to power as threats mount on all fronts. Zoe Barnes (Kate Mara), the 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 favours 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…

As usual with the current batch of Netflix original content, all 13 episodes of the second run will be available to watch at once on the same day. Binge-watchers, ready your snacks, drinks and adult nappies!
