But now is getting back on track and getting to its own path.However, you can still expect to see some familiar situations to 2017 America. But get ready to enjoy the old swagger that made the series a success in its first seasons.
Kevin Spacey hasn’t been shy about what’s to come in the political drama. He said that the new episodes are “scarier than we’ve ever been before”, noting similarities between the Underwood’s campaign and Trump’s America.
“What’s interesting is that there are people who watch the show and even that, as an example, last year and thought, ‘that’s crazy, that could never happen’,” Spacey told Seth Meyers.“And then suddenly 18 months later it’s like, ‘oh, wait for a second, that actually could happen’, or it is happening.”
Everyone loves the show, its a fact. Even former President’s, Barack Obama official photographer, Pete Souza, has the House of Cards fever and shared a series of pics with Frank.
