The big finale of “House of Cards” Season 3 centered on the fractured relationship of the First Family, and the new trailer for the upcoming season wastes no time digging into the emotional complexity at hand. Clearly, Frank (Kevin Spacey) and Claire (Robin Wright) are still struggling to reconnect, which comes as no surprise when considering how strong-willed they both remain.
Yet the Underwoods aren’t the only characters on display in this 60-second spot. Kim Dickens returns as stalwart reporter Kate Baldwin, as does Russian President Petrov (Lars Mikkelsen) and Frank’s right-hand man, Doug Stamper (Michael Kelly). Also highlighted are freshly added cast members Joel Kinnaman (“The Killing”) and Neve Campbell (“Scream”), but what matters is that the short spot is packed with tantalizing clips.
Netflix recently announced that this season will be the final one for creator and showrunner Beau Willimon, who will be leaving to pursue new projects (including his first love of playwriting). The show was renewed for Season 5, though, so while there will certainly be a degree of finality to the upcoming episodes, there’s still more to come.
Check out the new trailer above. “House of Cards” Season 4 premieres all its episodes March 4, exclusively on Netflix.
