Check out four new images from Netflix’s House of Cards season five
Today, Netflix released four new images from the upcoming House of Cards season five. The show will premiere on the streaming service in its entirety on May 30, 2017. Starring two-time Academy Award winner Kevin Spacey, the fifth season will see Francis (Spacey) run for re-election with his wife, Claire (Robin Wright), by his side. You can check out the images in the slideshow below.
House of Cards season five was written before last year’s Presidential election, so there is unlikely to be specific parallels here. Executive producer Melissa James Gibson spoke to EW about the inevitable comparisons, saying, “Sure, the resonance sometimes feels eerie. But Trump is an outsider who’s trying to blow up the system, and Francis is the opposite.” At the end of season four, Frank was not only launching his Presidential campaign (he was not elected, as you may recall) with his wife, but plotting to declare war on ICO to distract from a certain damaging article.
Based on the BBC miniseries of the same name, House of Cards is executive produced by David Fincher, Joshua Donen, Beau Willimon, Kevin Spacey, Dana Brunetti, John David Coles and Eric Roth. The one-hour drama is produced by Donen/Fincher/Roth and Trigger Street Productions, Inc. in association with Media Rights Capital for Netflix. House of Cards season 5 also stars Michael Kelly, Jayne Atkinson, Neve Campbell, Derek Cecil, Paul Sparks, and Joel Kinnaman.
