Netflix releases new trailer for 'House of Cards' season 2

With a second season of the hit series 'House of Cards' set to premiere next month, Netflix released a new trailer yesterday that offers some hints about what we can expect.

The show stars Kevin Spacey as duplicitous South Carolina congressman Frank Underwood, and casts Robin Wright in the role of his equally calculating wife. Together they plot and scheme to accumulate more power in a D.C. world populated by ruthless adversaries.

The new season gets off to a rocking start as Underwood takes the oath of office to become vice-president, setting off a whirlwind of political posturing and backroom deals.

The trailer promises more of the show's trademark breaking of the fourth wall, with Spacey frequently cutting away from the action to acknowledge the audience with a wink or sly remark.

Binge-watchers can rejoice as all 13 episodes of season 2 will be available to stream on February 14, a Valentine's Day treat that marks a continuation of Netflix's pattern of releasing entire seasons of its original shows all at once.

Based on a British program of the same name, the show was a major first step into original programming for Netflix. The first season of 'House of Cards' was nominated for 9 Primetime Emmy awards in 2013, breaking new ground for a show that was produced exclusively for a digital streaming service.

Discussions with the creators and cast are currently ongoing about the possibility of third season.
