The Underwoods are going to be at odds big time, based on the first trailer for Season 4 of Netflix’s “House of Cards.”
The extended trailer is a trove of imagery that clears up a few immediate questions: First Lady Claire Underwood (Wright) has not fully absconded her post. It appears the wily Mrs. Underwood has taken residence in a house that suspiciously resembles where she and Frank (Spacey) started their political being — in his hometown of Gaffney, South Carolina, where he began as a congressman.
That would give Claire a decent amount of cloud-cover to hash out their marriage problems while still appearing to fall in line with her husband’s reelection campaign.
From there, we see the Class of 2016 present: Joel Kinnaman looks poised to be a hot, young, self-taking rival for Frank, though it’s unclear if he’s in the running for an office as high as President. Neve Campbell pops up, as does the little-reported Ellen Burstyn (please god let her play Claire’s mother).
Returning champs are here as well — Lars Mikkelsen as the cocky, shit-stirring Russian president Viktor Petrov, Molly Parker’s shady Congresswoman Jackie Sharp and Mahershala Ali’s former Presidential right hand Remy Danton.
Netflix has already renewed “House of Cards” for a fifth season, but Willimon is leaving after the upcoming fourth.
“House of Cards” Season 4 will premiere on Netflix on March 4.
