House of Cards


Prepare for the best two minutes of your day.

"The road to power is paved with hypocrisy," the voice-over for the brand-spankin'-new House of Cards season two trailer teases, before ominously adding, "and casualties."

Yes, the Netflix breakout hit, which was just nominated for a Golden Globe (for Best Drama Series), is returning death threats and political scandals blazing when it debuts on Feb. 14 (with all 13-episodes being unleashed at once.) Looks like it's going to be a bloody Valentine's Day!

(Finally, a real excuse as to why we're single on the most romantic day of the year: it's not you, it's House of Cards.)

And while the new trailer kicks off with season-one footage, keep watching as new footage from the sure-to-be intense sophomore run begins a little over halfway through and it is well worth the wait.

In a super-vague description of season two, Netflix previews that Francis (Kevin Spacey) and Claire (Robin Wright) will "continue their ruthless rise to power as threats mount on all fronts." Some of those threats include up-and-coming reporter Zoe Barnes (Kate Mara), who is close to uncovering Francis' crimes, and billionaire Raymond Tusk (Gerald McRaney), who is demanding Francis reciprocate political favors or face retribution, while Claire will continue to grapple with being in the spotlight. "The Underwoods must overcome these dangers—past and present—to avoid losing everything, regardless of collateral damage they leave in their wake."

Prior to the jampacked trailer, Netflix released a super-stylish and sleek teaser featuring a smokin' hot Robin Wright.

In addition to the series receiving a Best Drama Series nomination, Kevin Spacey, Wright and Corey Stoll were all recognized for their stellar work on the show, each receiving acting noms from the HFPA yesterday.

House of Cards season two will be available to binge-watch on Netflix on Feb. 14.
