Netflix’s hit political drama may be arriving sooner than fans expect as the streaming site officially announced the release date of the fourth season of “House of Cards.”
The announcement was made through a fake political ad aired over CNN during the GOP debate last Dec. 15.
After a series of campaign promises and a classic set up for good governance against politics, shots of the American countryside, children and the American flag, Kevin Spacey’s character Frank Underwood comes out on screen stating, “America, I’m only getting started.”
His campaign slogan FU2016, a witty play on his initials and his ability to not care about his critics, is flashed on screen along with the date March 4.
After the marital problems between Frank and Claire in the last season, it is expected that the next season will explore the conflict even further.
According to a report by Enstarz, unlike other couples in the limelight, Frank and Claire will most likely not make a secret of their breakup even it happens during campaign season.
This means that Claire will probably not be supporting Frank in his bid for the presidency, even if it is for show.
An earlier report by VCPost indicated that Neve Campbell will be joining the cast as “a power-hungry woman set on reaching the top and will achieve some momentum by using Frank (Kevin Spacey) and Claire’s (Robin Wright) damaged relationship.”
Colm Feore, whose acting credits include “The Chronicles of Riddick” and “Thor,” has also been cast in a recurring role for the series. The actor will play a high profile key role in the White House drama. It has been speculated that his role may have something to do with the powerful new rival that the Underwoods would have to face in upcoming episodes, reported IBTimes.
