House of Cards returns for final season on Netflix Australia


If you’re a fan of hit Netflix show House of Cards, brace yourself for the final dramatic installment.

While season six has been somewhat marred by the scandal surrounding the show’s original star, Kevin Spacey, the popular political-thriller/drama was commissioned for a conclusion in late 2017, but with the notable omission of Spacey.

House of Cards season six hits Netflix Australia on 2 November and we’ve already been informed about the demise of its lead character, leaving the lady of the house now in charge – and word is, she’s even worse than her husband!

When we left them last, the Underwood power-couple had their sights firmly set on total control, with Frank Underwood stepping down as leader of the Free World to secure backing from the private sector, leaving his wife as the new President of the United States.

This season will see Claire Underwood – played by Robin Wright – take firm control of the House of Representatives, while also dealing with threats from both inside and outside of her party.

One of Netflix’s most popular series, House of Cards has been nominated for almost 50 Primetime Emmy awards, as well as eight Golden Globes in its previous five seasons, with the show walking away with seven Emmys and two Globes.

While previous seasons have been 13 episodes long, season six will only feature eight episodes, but viewers can binge all episodes on the day of release.

Viewers will also be treated to a host of new faces, including Diane Lane (The Perfect Storm, Man of Steel), Greg Kinnear (You’ve Got Mail, Green Zone), as well as Aussie actor Cody Fern, each looking to make their mark in the political landscape.

The new characters can be seen in the official trailer, which was released in October via Netflix’s official YouTube account.
