House of Cards Season 4 left us on a pretty grim note, and our first new additions for Season 5 aren’t any less intimidating. Not only has the icy Patricia Clarkson joined in an important new role, but also a familiar Royal Pains star.
House of Cards
Any House of Cards fan knows that Robin Wright’s Claire Underwood is likely destined to move from First Lady to President herself. Now, Wright is already looking back at the tenure of First Ladies, teaming with Reese Witherspoon’s production company to direct and produce and adaptation of First Women: The Grace & Power Of America’s Modern First Ladies.
Only a few short years ago, Netflix had in mind to double its roster of original programming by 2016. That goal has more or less been achieved, with something new debuting practically every Friday, so what’s next? Why, launching even more originals, to the point they make up 50% of the streaming service’s offerings, per Netflix brass.
The fine folk at Honest Trailers rarely get into the TV game (even less often double-dipping), but suffice to say, certain series might take years to make the rotation. No longer, as all the major Emmy 2016 contenders, from The Americans to Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt get their own mini trailer parodies!
When Netflix passes, go to Showtime? If Elizabeth Marvel can’t win the presidency on House of Cards, it appears as if Homeland will give her a shot. The actor has officially been called to play the first female President (elect) for Homeland Season 6, depicting the delicate transition of power.
Gee, isn't it nice to not have to wake up at 5:30 A.M. for the 2016 Emmy nominations?

That time of year is upon us again, as this coming Thursday, July 14 sees the announcement of the 2016 Emmy Awards nominations, in a field that seems tougher by each year. Favorites like Game of Thrones hit new levels of spectacle this year, while newcomers like UnREAL and Mr. Robot could split the nominations wide open.
Streaming markets are still evolving, between features available, tiered subscriptions, pricing and more, and Netflix, granddaddy of them all, will soon up their prices without a majority of customers realizing. Say goodbye to those grandfathered into the Standard Netflix subscription, as you’ll be forking over an additional $2.00 each month without realizing.
Once upon a time, Netflix’s House of Cards had only a two-season order guaranteed, and here we are a second showrunner to take us into a fifth (!) season. Following the exit of longtime creative voice Beau Willimon (after Season 4, don’t worry), House Cards has promoted from its own cabinet to lead the Kevin Spacey-Robin Wright political drama past 2016.
President Underwood finally graced the House of Cards Season 4 campaign trail with a full trailer this week, and with only weeks to go before the March premiere, Frank has opened the books entirely. Not only has more blood been spilled in a new teaser, but so too does the full photo set reveal the many guest stars.
