Political drama TV series "House of Cards" announced Season 5 premiere. The show which tells the story about a cruel and manipulative politician who wormed his way into becoming the most powerful man in the United States, and perhaps, the world, will return on May 30 on Netflix.

Variety reported that this was confirmed via a Twitter post. The DC-set drama's promitional video shows the U.S. flag hung upside down in a sign of distress, a "somber recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance" along with a message, "We make the terror" - a quote delivered by Underwood during the last episode of the previous season.

The last season of "House of Cards" show Francis Underwood (Kevin Spacey) running for re-election alongside his wife, Claire (Robin Wright). Underwood delivered a fear-mongering speech about the future of the country - which confirmed that the Americans are at war with a terrorist group known as the ICO.

Season 4 received generally positive reviews, with an 87% rating from Rotten Tomatoes, but the choice of having Claire be Frank's running mate was highly criticized by reviewers, with some even saying that this move was "stupid" and "moronic."

The series is a recipient of 33 Primetime Emmy Award nominations and eight Golden Globe Award nominations so far. Spacey and Wright have both won Golden Globe Awards for their performances in "House of Cards." Their performances as husband and wife who initiate an elaborate plan to get into power is very compelling, critics agree.

The teaser for "House of Cards" Season 5 was released the same day that Donald Trump took office as the President of the United States. CNET said that the Inauguration Day Timing of the "House of Cards" teaser is not a coincidence, and that it's mostly a smart marketing move designed to attract attention.
