AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic Consensus: House of Cards folds slightly under the weight of its labyrinthian ending -- thankfully Robin Wright's commanding performance is more than enough to keep it standing strong.

Tv Season Info

Claire Underwood (Robin Wright) steps into the limelight as the first female President of the United States, a position vacated by her now-dead husband Frank (Kevin Spacey). Despite the power that the seat holds, Claire finds herself without friends or allies within and outside the White House. Constantly biting at her heels are the kingmaker siblings Annette (Diane Lane) and Bill (Greg Kinnear) Shepherd, Annette's son Duncan Shepherd (Cody Fern), and Vice President Mark Usher (Campbell Scott). On top of all her troubles, Claire also struggles to escape Frank's long shadow. The sixth season of "House of Cards" also stars Michael Kelly as Doug Stamper, Patricia Clarkson as Jane Davis, Derek Cecil as Seth Grayson, Constance Zimmer as Janine Skorsky, Boris McGiver as Tom Hammerschmidt, Jayne Atkinson as Catherine Durant, and Lars Mikkelsen as Russian President Viktor Petrov.

Critic Reviews for House of Cards: Season 6

All Critics (59) | Top Critics (17)

Wright's performance reflects all of his cynicism, calculation and deep, unhealed wounds that powered his engine, and now hers as a President who pledges allegiance only to herself and her gender.

The gaping cynicism of these faux Washington insiders also paints a depressing picture of the actual current climate, especially against the backdrop of the real-life controversy in the White House.

Cards has always been a show whose plot contortions could confuse and whose incremental intrigue could bore, and those problems are worse now that everyone seems to be whispering.

It sounds like a compelling story, but Claire remains an icy, tough-to-read cipher through much of it, despite flashbacks to her childhood and that fourth-wall-breaking, talking-to-the-viewers thing that Spacey once did so well.
