Netflix has finally debuted a trailer for the second season of House of Cards, which will debut all in one big episode drop on February 14th in 2014. Nearly all the major players of the show are back (excluding a brilliant actor who was mercilessly killed last season, who will remain nameless), and though the trailer opens with a recap of sorts, it quickly moves into new footage. All three of the show’s big names are back, Kevin Spacey, Robin Wright and Kata Mara, and now with Frank acquiring even more power, it looks like things are about to get even more intense. This looks to be the polar opposite of a show like Veep, where the vice president is mocked for how little power they have. But put Frank in the same sport? He’ll grab as much of it as he possibly can.
This definitely looks interesting, though House of Cards always did come off as something almost like great TV, but not quite getting there. Like a parody of the genre that doesn’t know it’s a parody. Not to say it isn’t good, but I’m just not sure that it’s quite as good as it thinks it is, if you understand my meaning. Watch the new trailer for yourself above.
