While Frank Underwood prepares to climb 'to the top of the food chain,' his wife Claire struggles with a personal crisis.
Netflix has released three new promos ahead of "House of Cards" season 2 debut. Aptly titled "Welcome Back", the first video reminds fans what kind of a life Frank Underwood has been living in and what the goal he's pursuing.
The second video highlights Frank and his wife Claire. Claire apparently needs reassurance about their "calculated" marriage as she faces a personal crisis. The third snippet gives a look at the murky world of politics, with someone making "an irreversible mistake" and Frank asking something which is "just shy of treason."
In the second installment of the political thriller, Kevin Spacey reprises his role as Frank Underwood, who has masterfully maneuvered his way into the Vice Presidency, but his ascension faces threats on all fronts.
Golden Globe-winning actress Robin Wright Penn returns as Claire Underwood, the newly-appointed Second Lady who must deal with the bright glare of the spotlight and how the intense scrutiny eats away at their once private existence.
As Frank and Claire continue their ruthless rise to power, 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.
Michel Gill, who plays President Garrett Walker, dishes on how Frank will use his new power as the VP. "Everyone walks on eggshells around Frank," he says. "He has it out for everybody. In a very Shakespearean way, he just wants to kill everyone who crosses him in any way."
Netflix will release all 13 episodes of the new season on Friday, February 14.
