Frank, Claire, Doug—the House of Cards gang is all here for season four. Netflix announced the fourth season of House of Cards will premiere on March 4 with all episodes dropping at once.
The special announcement came as the GOP candidates squared off in a CNN debate. Earlier today the official Twitter account set the stage for the announcement. "BREAKING NEWS: President Underwood will be making a special announcement tonight during the #GOPDebate," House of Cards tweeted.
During one of the few commercial breaks throughout the debate, Kevin Spacey did, in fact, appear to approve the message for his own campaign (#FU2016) and to inform us of the approaching new season.
When viewers last saw the Underwoods, Claire (Robin Wright) had decided to leave Frank (Kevin Spacey) after a series of events that fractured the formerly strong power couple. Little was known about season four aside from Neve Campbell's involvement with the show.
Spacey and Wright have both picked up Golden Globes for their roles on the Netflix series, a remake of a British show of the same name. David Fincher has taken home an Emmy for directing the show and guest star Reg E. Cathey took home an Emmy for playing Freddy, the owner of Frank's favorite rib joint.
Last year season three leaked early, with some fans able to get a glimpse at the action a few weeks early. The episodes were promptly taken down. "This is Washington. There's always a leak. All 13 episodes will launch February 27," the show's official account tweeted in February.
"Due to a technical glitch some Frank Underwood fans got a sneak peak. He'll be back on Netflix on Feb 27," Netflix said in a statement.
Safe to assume those leaks have been plugged for season four.
Season four of House of Cards premieres March 4, 2016 on Netflix.
