On Wednesday, Netflix announced that their award winning web series, House of Cards, would return to the portable screen (is that what we're saying these days?) on Friday, Feb. 14, 2014.
Yup, just in time to ruin your Valentine's Day plans. But really, did you have plans? We'd much rather curl up on the couch and fully indulge in all 13 scandalous new episodes of this incredible political drama.
Here is the story summary for season 2:
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. President Walker's (Michel Gill) billionaire confidante Raymond Tusk (Gerald McRaney) 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.
Now watch this really artsy teaser of Claire Underwood smoking a cigarette – oh my goodness, suspense!
