What To Stream: House of Cards

Stream House of Cards on Netflix

Frank Underwood and company return to Netflix today with season 4 of House of Cards. If you’re all caught up on the series, then I reckon you’ll be streaming season 4 this weekend. If you’re not all caught up, or never started watching the show, now is a great time to start.

Netflix’s House of Cards was created by Beau Willimon and is based on a British miniseries of the same name. Both are based on a series of books by Michael Dobbs.

Kevin Spacey plays Frank Underwood, a ruthless Democratic politician from South Carolina. Robin Wright plays Claire Underwood, Frank’s wife.

After being passed over for a promised Secretary of State position, Underwood unleashes his wrath on Washington, D.C. in the first episode of the series. As the series progresses, Underwood climbs further up the political ladder.

Throughout its run on Netflix, House of Cards has been a critical darling. The series received nine Emmy nominations in its first season, winning three. Robin Wright won a Golden Globe in 2014 in the Best Actress-Television Drama category.

While the fourth season of the show premieres today, it has already been announced that there will be a fifth season of the show. The fifth season will premiere sometime in 2017. Beau Willimon will step down from his position running the show after this season. The fifth season will be spearheaded by Melissa James Gibson and Frank Pugliese.
