House of Cards season 2 spoilers: Vice President Frank Underwood's political dirty laundry to be exposed? [Trailer]
House of Cards, the Golden Globe-nominated television series that captured audiences with its drama of dirty politics, manipulation and betrayal, returns on Valentine's day for a second season.
Netflix released a new trailer, hinting at new twists and powerful enemies threatening to expose Frank Underwood's political dirty laundry in the upcoming episodes. The show's Twitter page teased its fans with the message "And the butchery begins".
The season finale last year saw Underwood receive the President's offer to be the Vice President, and reporter Zoe Barnes, played by Kate Mara, investigating closer to the truth about Frank's corrupt past with fellow journalist friends.
The new season will kick off with Underwood in the Vice President role.
According to the promo clip, there is "no mercy" for "those of us planning to the top of the food change." A lot of bloodshed is expected on the road to power, "paved with hypocrisy and casualties."

Director David Fincher also won a Primetime Emmy for outstanding directing for a drama series.
The American political drama began filming the second set of 13 episodes in April last year, primarily in Baltimore.
Executive producer Rick Cleveland mentioned to Gold Derby that he believed Season 2 would be the final season for House of Cards, adding that the main actors prefer to act in movies than in television. However, both Cleveland and creator Beau Willimon tweeted hopes to write more seasons.
