House of Cards, Season 3

David Giesbrecht for Netflix

Move over Donald Trump, Frank Underwood is getting ready to steal your thunder during tonight's GOP debate. The official Twitter account for Netflix's House of Cards sent out an ominous message that can only mean one thing: we're thisclose to getting a House of Cards season four premiere date and trailer.

"BREAKING NEWS: President Underwood will be making a special announcement tonight during the #GOPDebate," House of Cards tweeted Tuesday.

Netflix is remaining mum on the details, but fans should be on the lookout for President Underwood (Kevin Spacey) during the debate, which is airing on CNN tonight. Safe bet whatever is announced will end up on the Twitter account, too.

Season three premiered at the end of February, but it's premiere date was announced on Dec. 1, 2014 via a "special message" on Twitter from the Underwood-inhabited White House.

For those foggy on details, season three ended with Claire (Robin Wright) ditching hubby Frank and Doug Stamper (Michael Kelly) offing Rachel Posner (Rachel Brosnahan) once and for all. Details on the new season are scarce, but we know Party of Five veteran Neve Campbell will be part of the cast.

Earlier this year Spacey stopped by the Late Show and told host Stephen Colbert he's talking to somebody very special when he's doing those Frank Underwood speeches to the camera.

"Who do you think you're talking to when you talk right to the camera? Who is that person? Is it like a close confidant? Because the persona you're actually talking to, of course, are people on a 10-hour Netflix binge, sucking on boxed wine," Colbert asked the Oscar winner.

"This is the truth, from the very beginning," Spacey said. "When I'm looking directly into that camera, I'm talking to one person and one person only, and that is Donald Trump."
