The ‘House of Cards’ Season 3 Teaser Is Here

Helga Esteb /

House of Cards fans: Are you ready?

Season 3 is just around the corner. You technically have just over 6 weeks until the new episodes are available on Netflix. Judging by the House of Cards Season 3 teaser trailer–which you can see below–they’re taking things to another level this time around. How long will it be before the Underwood’s are scheming for large scale collateral damage for their better good? I’m guessing Season 5.

OK. Let’s get political here for a second. A little commentary over policy.

A lot of people are under the impression that the characters played by Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright (Francis and Claire Underwood) are based on the real-life political power couple, Bill and Hillary Clinton. Yes, there are some wonderful traits the writers have pulled from the former president and current Secretary of State, but truth be told, the most despicable stuff is more of a suggestion of Dick Cheney.

And when you write these things in the United States, they don’t fire bomb your office, silent assassins just kill you in secret. As the show would suggest. But I digress. Back to the TV Show about the “far-fetched” imaginings of the American political sphere.

Kevin Spacey won a Golden Globe for his performance in House of Cards Season 2, and those things only help to push the popularity of a show that already enjoys an impressive following. And this show doesn’t miss a beat. If you haven’t seen the show, and you’re a Netflix subscriber, the first two seasons are already available to you. You’ve got 6 weeks to get caught up.

If you’re still not convinced, check out the video below!
