Season 2 of House of Cards, the Netflix original political drama series, will be released on the streaming network in February 2014.

'House of Cards' Season 2

The Emmy-nominated series, a remake of the British show of the same name, stars Kevin Spacey as House Majority Whip Francis Underwood and Robin Wright as his wife Claire. Both actors were nominated for House of Card’s critically acclaimed first season. They’ll both be back for the series’ sophomore effort, as will director David Fincher and screenwriters Beau Willimon and Eric Roth.

“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), an up-and-coming reporter and Francis’s former paramour, is inching closer to the truth about his crimes,” reads Netflix’s press release. “President Walker’s (Michel Gill) billionaire confidante Raymond Tusk (Gerald McRaney) demands that Francis reciprocate political favors or face retribution.”

“Claire must confront the increasing glare of the spotlight as it eats away at her and Francis’s once private existence,” the season synopsis continues. “The Underwood’s must overcome these dangers — past and present — to avoid losing everything, regardless of collateral damage they leave in their wake.”
