'House of Cards' Season 2 Trailer: Ooh 52 Card Pick-up!

House of Cards will be back for its second season on Netflix on February 14th, making Valentine’s Day wonderful for well-matched partners, while sending other already-doomed relationships into a quick and ungraceful tailspin. But it will be a tailspin with Kevin Spacey being deliciously malicious and Robin Wright smoking. Like, a lot.

But we also have a new, full length trailer. I wish Netflix had the meta-humor going such that they just released all of their eventual trailers on the same day so that we could binge watch them, but you can’t have everything.

Here you go:

Here’s the obligatory plot summary:

Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey) has masterfully maneuvered his way into the Vice Presidency, but his ascension faces threats on all fronts… Investigative reporter Zoe Barnes (Kate Mara) is inching closer to the truth about Frank and Peter Russo (Corey Stoll) and will stop at nothing to break the story. And Frank’s wife Claire (Robin Wright), the newly appointed Second Lady, must deal with the bright glare of the spotlight and how the intense scrutiny eats away at their once private existence.

Let the butchery begin…

All I know is that I kept pausing and backing up the video because I’m pretty sure that was Liam McPoyle in there at one point, and I choose to believe this means that House of Cards is set in the same universe as Always Sunny in Philadelphia.

Also, I’ve decided that I want a West Wing crossover with House of Cards. Someone get on that right away.
