'House of Cards' season 4 news: Digging graves, flowers on train tracks, red paint take center stage in latest promos


Things seem to be getting more intense as fans await with bated breath the return of Netflix’s “House of Cards” season 4 on March 4.

In the latest promo for the season, a shot of a street pavement with what appears to be blood is highlighted only to pan upwards to show a painter working on one of Frank Underwood’s campaign signs.

What originally appeared as spilled blood actually turned out to be spilled paint from the worker’s tools. It can be recalled that the first promo showed Frank and Doug Stamper digging what originally appeared as a grave but it was later revealed that they were leading a groundbreaking event for Frank’s campaign.

The show also released another promo focused on a bouquet of roses ominously positioned on a train track as shot of Frank Underwood’s poster promising that he will get America back on track was shown.

The promos seem to be representations of what Frank Underwood’s presidential campaign will be like especially after Claire left him and may even work against him in the upcoming season.

It is expected that the drama and suspense will further intensify with the return of characters like Doug Stamper (Michael Kelly), Remy Danton (Mahershala Ali), Jackie Sharp, (Molly Parker), and Viktor Petrov (Lars Mikkelsen), Breathecast reported.

Also joining the cast are Ellen Burstyn, Joel Kinnaman, and Neve Campbell who will be playing a character that will use Frank and Claire’s damaged relationship to her advantage.

Meanwhile, it has been reported that season 4 will be creator Beau Willimon’s last in the series, Deadline reported.

“Netflix and MRC owe a tremendous debt of gratitude to Beau Willimon for his strong narrative vision for House of Cards over the show’s first four seasons. As an Academy Award nominated writer, he made his first foray into television and built a riveting and critically acclaimed series, establishing his place in TV history. The producers, cast and crew join us in wishing Beau the best in his next creative adventure,” Netflix announced.
