Mumbai: Truth is supposed to be stranger than fiction… except when it comes to House of Cards. The power couple Frank & Claire Underwood are back in business as Zee Café – the destination for the best in English entertainment in India – presents the World Television Premiere of House of Cards Season 5 on Saturday, 3rd June, 5 PM onwards. The Emmy and Golden Globe-winning political drama will premiere on Zee Café with a Season 5 weekend marathon, giving fans a perfect opportunity to binge watch the entire series at a go.
Crafting fake narratives and throwing away long-time allies are all part of the game for the Underwoods. Their thirst for power is unquenchable. After the roaring success of the first four seasons, in Season 5, the homemade terror will take over the world and viewers will witness more conniving drama and backroom deals that will have them on the edge of their seats. Award winning actors Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright will be seen this season not just as husband and wife but also as running mates campaigning together for the upcoming US Presidential elections which will add an interesting new dynamic to their relationship.
Executive Producer of the show Melissa James Gibson says, “They are a couple of survivors, and power is the Underwood’s religion. That’s something the show has been building towards for quite some time now. Francis wasn’t elected president, so this is the real test: What is the will of the people, and can he work his Machiavellian magic on them?”
Along with Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright, House of Cards- Season 5 also stars Michael Kelly, Jayne Atkinson, Neve Campbell, Derek Cecil, Paul Sparks and Joel Kinnaman.
