‘House of Cards’ Drops Mini-Trailer For Final Season & Autumn Air Date
‘House of Cards‘ dropped a little TV spot during last night’s Oscar ceremony in the US, giving us the tiniest glimpse of what’s to come in the show’s 6th and final season.
The show hit a rather large problem when allegations surfaced last year regarding the sexual conduct of Kevin Spacey, who was starring in the lead role as Frank Underwood. This prompted the production to shut down whilst Netflix figured out if there was a way to move forward without him. Thankfully, the previous season had ended with Claire Underwood taking up the role of President, which should make the transition into a Spacey-less final season a little easier!
There were concerns Netflix might not be able to pull this off, but the streaming giant was determined to give the series an end, and not let events behind the scenes stop them from returning to the US’s dark political world. The trailer itself doesn’t really give anything away. A flurry of office activity ending with Claire in the Oval Office saying “we’ve only just started”.
In 2013, House of Cards became the first original online series to receive major nominations from the Primetime Emmy Awards. The series has received 53 Emmy nominations to date, with seven wins — including the first major Emmy for a streaming service for David Fincher’s win for “Outstanding Directing for a Drama Series.” House of Cards received six Golden Globe nominations, and two wins. The historic series has received 11 Screen Actors Guild nominations with two wins; an AFI Award; four Writers Guild Award nominations, with one win; two BAFTA nominations; four Producers Guild Award nominations; two Directors Guild Award nominations; and a Peabody Award, among other accolades.
Due to the delay and reshoots, ‘House of Cards‘ is going to be late this year, but will be back for its final season in Autumn 2018.
