The upcoming season, which debuts on Netflix May 30, is already eliciting strong comparisons to the current political landscape. One of the most critically acclaimed political drama returns on television.
Kevin Spacey revealed that the upcoming fifth season of "House of Cards" is "one of the best" they've done.
After the roaring success of the first four seasons of the Emmy® nominated drama, Zee Café brings the House of Cards Season 5 marathon as an action packed weekend binge dose.
"When you're fresh meat, kill and throw them something fresher", the tweet reads, referencing a line from the show, where Underwood's twisted words of wisdom have become fan favorites. "That was never our intention to play into the real world of politics", he told THR. "We wanted to be an alternative universe". They even need help writing their wildest dreams, crafting their worst fears.
"We felt very strongly we did not want people to think that's what we were up to".
There's always a chance that Frank Underwood - Kevin Spacey's devious fictional character from House of Cards - could be coming to a debate near you.
"It's never something that crosses our minds. And it may be a universe that some people prefer".
"This is insane what's happening in the real world", said Kelly, who plays White House chief of staff Doug Stamper on the show. "I think we are all feeling, 'Oh, I can't checkout now.' Checking out is not the appropriate reaction". "Whether that's stuffing envelopes for something you believe in or finding out what your community center needs". With so much turmoil and unexpected surprises in the real world of politics this past year, can the political TV show even compete?
Michael Kelly then adds how important it is for him, and House of Cards, to have a voice and be able to use it for what he thinks is the right cause. And my answer to that is, just you wait.
How long will we be seeing new seasons of House of Cards?
