The first look at the new season of the Netflix series teases a more diabolical Francis Underwood as he says there can be no mercy 'for those who climb to the top of the food chain.'
Netflix has unleashed a trailer for "House of Cards" season 2, giving a look at a more intense season. Kevin Spacey's Frank Underwood is back and he won't stop at nothing to get what he wants, even if it means that he has to be as dangerous as his rival.
As Frank and Claire (Robin Wright Penn) "continue their ruthless rise to power as threats mount on all fronts," he realizes that there can be no mercy "for those who climb to the top of the food chain." The video ends with him saying, "...and the butchery begins."
According to the description of season 2, Frank has masterfully maneuvered his way into the Vice Presidency, but his ascension faces threats on all fronts. Investigative reporter Zoe Barnes (Kate Mara) is inching closer to the truth about Frank and Peter Russo (Corey Stoll) and will stop at nothing to break the story.
And Frank's wife Claire, the newly appointed Second Lady, must deal with the bright glare of the spotlight and how the intense scrutiny eats away at their once private existence.
The new installment of the political drama series will premiere Friday, February 14. All 13 episodes of the new chapter will be available to watch instantly on Netflix.
