House of Cards | Season 5 Date Announcement | Netflix

Netflix used Donald Trump’s inauguration day to announce the return date of US drama House of Cards.

The political drama, which stars Kevin Spacey as the dastardly US President Frank Underwood, will return on 30 May 2017.

Typically, past seasons have been released in February but season five will arrive on the streaming service three months later than usual.

Robin Wright will return as First Lady Claire Underwood while other cast members expected to reappear include Michael Kelly as Doug Stamper, Paul Sparks as Thomas Yates and Neve Campbell’s political consultant LeAnn Harvey.
