With Trump’s inauguration having taken place, we needed something to cheer us up and the announcement of House of Cards season 5’s release has done the trick.
The hit Netflix series will return globally on Tuesday 30th May 2017, which is considerably later than the previous seasons. The fourth season finale saw Claire (Robin Wright) and Frank (Kevin Spacey) Underwood dealing with a hostage crisis and it ended on a very bleak and eerie note.
The fifth season will continue Frank and Claire’s story and will see the return of cast members Michael Kelly, Jayne Atkinson, Neve Campbell, Derek Cecil and Paul Sparks.
The showrunners for season five are Melissa James Gibson and Frank Pugliese, who serve as executive producers along with David Fincher, Daniel Minahan,Kevin Spacey, Joshua Donen,Dana Brunetti, Eric Roth,John Mankiewicz, Robin Wright, Michael Dobbs and Andrew Davies.
