House of Cards Season 5

House of Cards Season 5 Premiere Date Announced by Netflix

Leave it to Frank Underwood to hijack Donald Trump’s big day.

Netflix announced early Friday (aka Inauguration Day) via a haunting promo that House of Cards‘ fifth season will debut on May 30. 

The clip, which can be viewed below, opens on an extreme close-up of an American flag as children can be heard reciting the “Pledge of Allegiance.” As the camera pulls back, it’s revealed that the flag is upside down (a fitting nod to the show’s logo).

The Kevin Spacey-Robin Wright drama faces arguably its biggest test in Season 5, which will be the first season without series creator Beau Willimon at the helm.

Watch the teaser below and then hit the comments with your predictions regarding a Willimon-less House of Cards

    Can’t wait, but sucks that we have to wait longer than usual for the new season.

  2. Any idea why we have to wait so much? Did it have anything to do with the new showrunner or with the presidential election? Maybe they had to change something or they simply didn’t want it too close to Trump’s inauguration?

  3. Mitsotakis says:

    Each year we wait more. Hopefully this season will be better than the last one.

  4. Jeff T. says:

    That is freaky seeing the American flag upside down. Yikes.

    Sorry to say that I wasn’t a watcher until recently but I have watched all 4 seasons in the last week and a half…..I am now hooked. Can’t wait until season 5. Love it, love it, love it!!!!!

  6. Michael Penn says:

    Certainly not impressed with the trailer, of course I am very patriotic and do not appreciate the flag being disgraced. Love the show though…

  7. Super excited but hoping the show wont over do it with an over the top plot…

    Is this worldwide release or just the US? In previous seasons, outside the US must wait 6 months or so after the US release :(
