The official teaser for the sixth and final season of “House of Cards” has arrived. Here’s what we know: Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey) is dead, Claire (Robin Wright) is president, and the inner-workings of the White House have never been darker. (You know, in fake TV world, at least.)
“The bodies are adding up,” the D.C. journalists on the Netflix series are finding in their investigation.
Doug Stamper (Michael Kelly) is also back to his creepy, threatening ways. “Did you think you’d seen the last of me?” he says to a member of the POTUS’ security detail. Later, he’s throwing punches.
And you just know it’s not good when the leader of Russia is telling our democratic commander-in-chief, “You sound like a gangster.”
Watch the teaser via the video above, during which Claire promises, “The reign of the middle-aged white man is over.”
The final season of “House of Cards” debuts on Netflix on Nov. 2.

These shows have had major cast shakeups in recent months
Actor Seann William Scott took over the role of Martin Riggs for the show's third season, which got the green light from Fox on May 13. A representative from Warner Bros. Television said the studio "decided not to renew Clayne Crawford’s contract for ‘Lethal Weapon'" after reports of bad behavior on set, described as "complaints of emotional abuse and creating a hostile environment."
Crawford apologized last month and wished the "Lethal Weapon" team luck on their third season without him. “To my cast and crew – CONGRATULATIONS on season 3!” Crawford wrote. “To the Fans – Thank you for the overwhelming support and love. Riggs was a dream role and the experience will live with me forever. My heart is full. Good Luck nxt season!!” he said on Instagram over the weekend.
"I take great pride in treating everyone in life with dignity and kindness," the 40-year-old actor said in April. "I am very grateful for my job, and I work extremely hard at it. I have a responsibility to do good work for my coworkers, my family, and my home state, and most especially for the fans. I hope they will stick with me and stick with the show."
Fox bosses said the decision to move ahead with a new season without Crawford was not their decision, but that of Warner Bros.
"Ultimately, our partners at Warner Bros. come to us about three weeks ago to tell us that they could not deliver ‘Lethal Weapon’ as we’ve known it before, that there were some real challenges in the cast. They thought long and hard about it. I know that was not their first choice,” said Dana Walden, Chairmen and CEO, Fox Television Group.
