Robin Wright Takes the Throne in New 'House of Cards' Promo Poster

08 August 2018

It's been a long time coming, but Netflix's flagship show House of Cards is finally making its return.

It has been five years since Netflix began launching original content.

At the conclusion of House of Cards season 5, Kevin Spacey's evil President Frank Underwood resigned the presidency, allowing his wife and Vice President Claire Underwood (Wright) to assume the office. The series was created by Beau Willimon and is produced by Donen/Fincher/Roth, with MRC as the studio, for Netflix.

Spacey didn't deny Rapp's allegations, but instead came out as gay in a statement responding to the accusation. Production was shut down, Spacey was sacked as the lead actor (and as a producer), and eight new episodes for the now-final season had to be hastily written with Robin Wright as the lead.

The streamer also released a sleek new poster for the upcoming season, showing Wright's Claire sitting stoic and stone-faced in a seat that resembles the one from the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C. Her hand grips the end of the chair's right arm, blood dripping from her fingers and down the banner-decorated pillar. "We never socialized outside of work".

"When revealing the House of Cards season 6 poster and premiere date, Netflix added the hashtag "#MyTurn" to the announcement tweet.

Though it's not yet clear how Spacey's onetime protagonist, Frank Underwood, will be written out of the series, a July 4 teaser for House of Cards' final episodes slyly referenced his exit, as Claire said with a smirk, "Happy Independence Day... to me". House of Cards revived Kevin Spacey's career (before he destroyed it again himself), and introduced Netflix as a solid contender in the television network competition.
