Netflix has green lighted a second series of its Emmy award winning House of Cards.
The new series of the hit political drama will premiere on February 14, 2014. Academy Award winning Kevin Spacey and Golden Globe nominee Robin Wright return to slither beneath the curtain and through the back halls of greed, sex, love and corruption in modern Washington D.C.
In the second season, Francis (Spacey) and Claire Underwood (Wright) continue their ruthless rise to power as threats mount on all fronts.
