House Of Cards Season 2 Premiere Date Revealed

Netflix has announced the second season premiere date of its popular drama “House of Cards.”

The Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright-led series will be made available on the streaming entertainment website on February 14, Netflix announced on Wednesday.

“In the second season, Francis (Spacey) and Claire (Wright) Underwood continue their ruthless rise to power as threats mount on all fronts,” Netflix said in a release on Wednesday, of the drama’s second season. “Zoe Barnes (Kate Mara, ‘American Horror Story’), an up-and-coming reporter and Francis’s former paramour, is inching closer to the truth about his crimes. President Walker’s (Michel Gill, ‘The Good Wife’) billionaire confidante Raymond Tusk (Gerald McRaney, ‘Southland’) demands that Francis reciprocate political favors or face retribution. And Claire must confront the increasing glare of the spotlight as it eats away at her and Francis’s once private existence. The Underwood’s must overcome these dangers — past and present — to avoid losing everything, regardless of collateral damage they leave in their wake.”
