News & Interviews for House of Cards: Season 5
The bleakest (yet somehow still extremely fun to watch) season of the show yet.
Having laid to rest the long-standing charge that House of Cards was too absurd to be taken seriously as "prestige television", the Netflix caper has rediscovered its cocksure strut.
There's still life in the old House of Cards dog yet. But whether the Underwoods can keep playing a trump card on that guy in the White House remains to be seen.
Stepping back into the Underwoods' White House feels familiar, but it's clear that the show's creators have gone to great lengths to avoid using the same old tricks and tropes.
