The rather spoiler-free logline for the acclaimed drama’s sophomore run:

Francis (Kevin Spacey) and Claire (Robin Wright) Underwood continue their ruthless rise to power as threats mount on all fronts. Zoe Barnes (Kate Mara), an up-and-coming reporter and Francis’s former paramour, is inching closer to the truth about his crimes. President Walker’s (Michel Gill) billionaire confidante Raymond Tusk (Gerald McRaney) demands that Francis reciprocate political favors or face retribution. And Claire must confront the increasing glare of the spotlight as it eats away at her and Francis’s once private existence. The Underwoods must overcome these dangers — past and present — to avoid losing everything, regardless of collateral damage they leave in their wake.

  • Is it going to be a multi-episode release, or the more conventional one per week?

  • What about Sandrine Holt? Is she returning? How else are we going to get the courtroom battle between Gillian and Claire for wrongful termination? I need that subplot to happen because of how it could affect Claire’s non-profit.
