[via press release from Netflix]


From Academy Award(R) nominated screenwriter Beau Willimon, this critically-acclaimed drama slithers beneath the curtain and through the back halls of greed, sex, love and corruption in modern Washington D.C.

In the second season, Francis (Spacey) and Claire (Wright) Underwood continue their ruthless rise to power as threats mount on all fronts. Zoe Barnes (Kate Mara, "American Horror Story"), an up-and-coming reporter and Francis's former paramour, is inching closer to the truth about his crimes. President Walker's (Michel Gill, "The Good Wife") billionaire confidante Raymond Tusk (Gerald McRaney, "Southland") demands that Francis reciprocate political favors or face retribution. And Claire must confront the increasing glare of the spotlight as it eats away at her and Francis's once private existence. The Underwood's must overcome these dangers -- past and present -- to avoid losing everything, regardless of collateral damage they leave in their wake.

In addition to Spacey, Wright, Mara, Gill and McRaney, the series also stars Michael Kelly ("The Adjustment Bureau"), Mahershala Ali ("Treme"), Sebastian Arcelus ("Person of Interest"), Kristen Connolly ("The Cabin in the Woods"), Nathan Darrow ("Rigged"), Sakina Jaffrey ("Definitely Maybe") and Molly Parker ("Deadwood"). Additional cast members appearing in the series include: Jayne Atkinson ("The Following"), Gil Birmingham ("The Lone Ranger"), Rachel Brosnahan ("Orange is the New Black"), Reg E. Cathey ("Grimm"), Derek Cecil ("Treme"), Terry Chen ("Bates Motel"), Ben Daniels ("Merlin"), Joanna Going ("Mad Men"), Boris McGiver ("Person of Interest"), Mozhan Marno ("In Plain Sight") Sam Page ("Mad Men"), Kate Lyn Sheil ("V/H/S"), Jimmi Simpson ("It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia") and Constance Zimmer ("The Newsroom").

In the summer of 2013, for its first season, HOUSE OF CARDS made history as the first ever streaming series to earn Primetime Emmy(R) nominations in major categories, including: Outstanding Drama Series, Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series (Spacey), Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series (Wright), Outstanding Casting for a Drama Series (Laray Mayfield and Julie Schubert), Outstanding Directing for a Drama Series (Fincher), Outstanding Cinematography for a Single Camera Series (Eigil Bryld), Outstanding Single Camera Picture Editing for a Drama Series (Kirk Baxter), Outstanding Original Main Title Theme Music and Outstanding Music Composition for a Series (Jeff Beal). In all, the show took home three Emmy(R) wins for casting, directing and cinematography for its first season.

More recently, the series was acknowledged by the American Film Institute (AFI) as one of the Top 10 Programs of the Year, and was nominated for four Golden Globe(R) Awards for Best Television Series, Drama; Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series, Drama (Spacey); Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series - Drama (Wright); and Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in a Series, Mini-Series or Motion Picture Made for Television (Corey Stoll). HOUSE OF CARDS was nominated for Drama Series, New Series and Episodic Drama (Chapter One) by the Writer's Guild, and also for a Producer's Guild Award for Outstanding Drama. In December 2013, Kevin Spacey also received a Screen Actor's Guild nomination for his role in the series.

Based on the BBC miniseries of the same name, the second season of "House of Cards" is executive produced by Fincher, Willimon, Joshua Donen, Eric Roth, Kevin Spacey, Dana Brunetti, Andrew Davies, Michael Dobbs and David Manson. The one-hour drama is produced by Donen/Fincher/Roth and Trigger Street Productions, Inc. in association with Media Rights Capital for Netflix.
