Will House of Cards be the same? Final season coming up Nov 2


How many of you binge watched House of Cards? I know I did – more or less over a week or two. Frank Underwood seemed to be the guy everyone loved to hate. Of course with all the allegations against Kevin Spacey it was inevitable that he would not be in the upcoming season of House of Cards. In fact some probably wondered if the series would continue – but apparently it is for one more go around. The final season is out on Netflix November 2.

At the end of the last season, it was obvious that Claire was vying for the top job – but now knowing that Frank won’t be in the picture and Claire’s rise seems somewhat inevitable – will the series be the same?  Will the show be the same without Underwood’s character?

Well I guess it remains to be seen. Netflix offered up a little teaser showing Claire at Frank’s grave – so it seems that some reigns are already known.

Here’s the official sneak peek trailer:
