Netflix announced today that the second season of its critically acclaimed hit series, “,” will premiere on Friday, February 14, 2014. Those lovebirds looking for something special to do for the most popular date night, Valentine’s Day, will be given the opportunity to tune into all 13-episodes of season two which will become available instantly in all territories where Netflix is available. Starring Academy Award® winner Kevin Spacey (“Horrible Bosses,” “American Beauty,” “The Usual Suspects”) and Golden Globe® nominee (“The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo,” “Forrest Gump”), who both received Emmy® nominations for their performances in the first season, “House of Cards” tells the story of greed, sex, love and corruption in modern Washington D.C. political circles.

In the second season, Francis Underwood (Spacey) and his wife Claire (Wright) continue their ruthless rise to power as threats mount on all fronts. Zoe Barnes (, “American Horror Story”), an up-and-coming reporter and Francis’s former paramour, is inching closer to the truth about his crimes. President Walker’s (Michel Gill, “The Good Wife”) billionaire confidante Raymond Tusk (Gerald McRaney, “Southland”) demands that Francis reciprocate political favors or face retribution. And Claire must confront the increasing glare of the spotlight as it eats away at her and Francis’s once private existence. The Underwood’s must overcome these dangers – past and present – to avoid losing everything, regardless of collateral damage they leave in their wake.
