Watch the official trailer for House of Cards‘ fifth season

Season five of Netflix’s premiere series House of Cards is under a month away, but fans don’t have to wait any longer to get another glimpse. The dramatic first trailer has arrived!

“The American people don’t know what’s best for them, I do”,  Frank Underwood exclaims menacingly. Season five sees the Underwood regime attempt to usurp complete control of their people as the unnerving trailer paints a haunting visage of evil in politics. Art imitating life perhaps?

Following Beau Willimon’s departure as showrunner following the end of last season, the reigns have now been given to Melissa James Gibson and Frank Pugliese who joined the show in season three.

The fifth season of House of Cards will launch on Netflix on May 30.
