First House of Cards Season 6 trailer hails new chief

We’re just getting started, promises the first trailer for House of Cards’ sixth season, and those four words are a clear message to the world that Netflix’s political drama is putting the past behind it and moving on into new waters.
Those new waters are, of course, presided over by Robin Wright’s Claire Underwood, who has taken over the reins of the show, following the rapid ousting of Kevin Spacey. The actor, who played Frank Underwood for the previous five seasons, faced allegations of sexual harassment and abuse last year, leading production to halt on the series. Following an investigation, producers MRC and Netflix agreed they would only continue the show if Spacey was not involved in anyway.
Season 6, then confirmed as the show’s final season, will see Wright’s Claire led a cast that includes Diane Lane, Greg Kinnear, Michael Kelly, Jayne Atkinson, Patricia Clarkson, Constance Zimmer, Derek Cecil, Campbell Scott and Boris McGiver, with Cody Fern recently joining the pack.
Production resumed on the show last month, with a release date set for this autumn. Now, a new teaser released during last night’s Oscars broadcast gives us our first glimpse of the new era of House of Cards, an era that had already begun to dawn in Season 5. Here’s the video:
