‘House Of Cards’ Posts 4th Of July Message From New POTUS Claire Underwood Played By Robin Wright

Courtesy/Netflix

On a perfectly timed day to get people intrigued into the sixth and final season of the Netflix hit series, House of Cards, the streaming service tweeted a video message teasing its season expected to bow later this year.

In it, Robin Wright stars as the President of the United States, Claire Underwood, who simply states:  “Happy Independence Day…to me.”  That is followed by the hashtag cleverly stating #MyTurn.

Production of the Netflix drama began earlier this year, while Season 5 came to a conclusion with Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey) stepping down as POTUS and Claire taking his place.

As the events unfolded off-screen since the season 5 finale: due to the sexual assault allegations against Spacey from several men, and one from actor Anthony Rapp, that promted the series to fire Spacey for good.  The future of the final season was up in the air, until it was decided to move forward with Robin Wright at its epicenter.

Wright will be joined by a great line-up of castmates including: Greg Kinnear, Diane Lane,Patricia Clarkson, Constance Zimmer, Derek Cecil, Campbell Scott and more.

Watch the presidential message below. Then let us know, are you excited to see the new season of House of Cards featuring soap alum, former Santa Barbara star, Robin Wright as POTUS?  Comment below.

Sadly I think the show should have ended once it was revealed to the world what a disgusting and perverted and predatory man Kevin Spacey was. In general, all the talk will be about how better or worse the show is without Kevin or ROBIN/Clare VS Kevin/Frank. If Clare wasn’t made a true irredeemable character with that murderast season, I could move past Kevin Spacey being on the show to Robin Wright’s Clare showing how “women do it different. Do it better”. Sadly, Clare is as selfish, as power hungry, indefensible, pyschopathic, and murderous as Frank ever was. The series… Read more »

The best House of Cards is the British version from a few years ago with Ian Richardson. Really good as only the Brits do it. I really liked Robin Wright as Buttercup in “Princess Bride,” one of my favorite movies. She plays a “strong” woman in it as well. But not as evil, or conniving. Coincidentally several of other actors from the film will be coming to my annual sci-fi comic show that I go to every year. Like Vizzine “inconceivable.” And Wesley. Sounds like needed fun.
