The critically-acclaimed political drama of Netflix "House of Cards" is set to return for its season 5 on May 30. While initial rumors have it that the series will return on President Donald Trump's inauguration, the streaming service rather dropped a cryptic teaser to announce "HOC's" comeback. A few more exciting details about the "House of Cards" season 5 were revealed, including Claire Underwood's possible electoral victory.

Netflix has dropped an emotion-stirring teaser of "House of Cards" season 5 on Jan. 20, just in time to share with the new U.S. president's inauguration drama. Scheduled to premiere on May 30, the fifth season of "HOC" is a little delayed from its usual release schedule as the first three seasons had February debuts. Netflix took the announcement to its official Twitter account where the video featured voices of children reciting the "Pledge of Allegiance" with an upside-down American flag waving in the backdrop.

Captioned with "We make the terror," fans have since been speculating about the possible plot of the upcoming "House of Cards" season 5. Previously, talks have been surfacing claiming that Frank Underwood will finally meet his demise and that it is going to be in the hands of his wife, Claire. Apart from Michael Kelly's revelation about a character departing the show, there are no other solid indications that it is Frank who will die in the fifth season.

There are reports though saying that "House of Cards" season 5 will focus on Claire's story. It can be remembered that season 4 ended with Frank announcing his team up with Claire in the upcoming election. Following this, there were reportedly some hints that the new season will pick up from the start of an election where some enthusiasts believe the show will relate to the tumultuous 2016 U.S. election.

A definite change coming in the "House of Cards" season 5 is the absence of the show's creator, Beau Willimon who stepped down from his post as a showrunner early last year. He was however replaced by Frank Pugliese and Melissa James Gibson while the writers line up still remain the same. "House of Cards" has been widely appreciated as it reportedly depicts some real-life political dilemmas which were geniusly twisted, and has already won six Emmys since it started.
