The political drama will return to Netflix in May.
Netflix has announced a premiere date for the upcoming fifth season of 'House of Cards.' New episodes will start streaming on May 30. The fifth season will see Melissa James Gibson and Frank Pugliese taking over showrunning duties from Beau Willimon who oversaw the series' fourth season.
"We and the rest of the House of Cards writers look forward to the next chapter of the reign of Underwood," said Gibson and Pugliese.
'House of Cards' seasons one through four are now available to stream on Netflix. In the show's fourth season, the critically acclaimed Emmy nominated drama has its Golden Globe and SAG Award winning star Kevin Spacey (as Francis Underwood) and Golden Globe winner Robin Wright (as Claire Underwood), whose characters have always been each other's strongest allies, showing cracks in their relationship. In an election year, the stakes are now higher than ever, and the biggest threat they face is contending with each other. The show also stars Michael Kelly, Mahershala Ali, Jayne Atkinson, Neve Campbell, Derek Cecil, Nathan Darrow, Kim Dickens, Elizabeth Marvel, Dominique McElligott, Molly Parker, Paul Sparks, with Ellen Burstyn, Cicely Tyson and Joel Kinnaman.
