Netflix announced the release date for Season 2 of "House of Cards" on Wednesday (Dec. 4), Variety reports.

The second season will premiere on Friday, Feb. 14, 2014 at around midnight. Netflix is once again releasing all 13 episodes at once to watch instantly as it did for the debut season earlier this year.

The Emmy-winning series from director David Fincher stars Kevin Spacey, Kate Mara, Robin Wright, Michel Gil and Gerald McRaney.

In the second season, Frank (Spacey) and Claire (Wright) Underwood continue their ruthless rise to power as threats mount on all fronts. Zoe Barnes (Mara) is inching closer to the truth about Frank's crimes, while President Walker's (Michel Gill) billionaire confidante Raymond Tusk (McRaney) demands that Frank reciprocate political favors or face retribution. Meanwhile, Claire must confront the increasing glare of the spotlight as it eats away at her and Frank's once private existence.

Other returning cast members include Mahershala Ali (Remy), Sebastian Arcelus (Lucas), Kristen Connolly (Christina), Nathan Darrow (Edward), Sakina Jaffrey (Linda Vasquez), Michael Kelly (Doug Stamper), Constance Zimmer (Janine) and Rachel Brosnahan (Rachel). New cast additions include Sam Page ("Mad Men"), Molly Parker ("Deadwood") and Joanna Going ("Close to Home").

The first teaser trailer for Season 2 was also released. It features Wright's character Claire smoking, and is completely spoiler-free.

"House of Cards," based on the BBC miniseries of the same name, debuted on Feb. 1, 2013, and was nominated for nine Emmy Awards, including Outstanding Drama Series, Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series for Spacey, Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series for Wright and Outstanding Directing for a Drama Series for Fincher. It went on to win for directing, casting and cinematography.
