Fans of the Netflix original series,Â House of Cards, can rejoice. The date that the second season of the hit show will arrive on the net has just been announced. Starting on February 14 (that’s right, Valentine’s Day), you can continue watching the exploits of Francis Underwood as he attempts to climb the political ranks in Washington D.C., using every devious method on his way to the top.
In the second season, Francis (Spacey) and Claire (Wright) Underwood continue their ruthless rise to power as threats mount on all fronts. Zoe Barnes (Kate Mara, â€œAmerican Horror Storyâ€), an up-and-coming reporter and Francisâ€™s former paramour, is inching closer to the truth about his crimes. President Walkerâ€™s (Michel Gill, â€œThe Good Wifeâ€) billionaire confidante Raymond Tusk (Gerald McRaney, â€œSouthlandâ€) 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 Francisâ€™s once private existence. The Underwoodâ€™s must overcome these dangers — past and present — to avoid losing everything, regardless of collateral damage they leave in their wake.
