"House of Cards" has released a new teaser video of its upcoming fifth installment through its official social media account. The video has not revealed much but came out seemingly to remind the fans of Frank Underwood's influence. Meanwhile, talks are still rampant that the plot of "House of Cards" season 5 will take much from President Donald Trump's presidency.
The hugely popular political drama of Netflix is yet to premiere in May and rumors are abuzz on what should be expected from the upcoming installment. The "House of Cards" team has not yet dropped the official synopsis of the show, but a few teasers went out, sparking numerous theories among the shows' fans.
The show has posted a short clip via Twitter about "House of Cards" season 5. From the footage, Frank can be seen taking an oath which hints on his re-election victory. He can also be seen burning a letter, and at the end of the video, he was only thumping his table in the White House. Though this does not relay much about season 5's storyline, fans confirmed that Frank's wrath will continue to be felt in the new installment and that he and Claire push through with their plan to reign the country alongside each other.

Meanwhile, the 2016 U.S. elections have brought countless talks among the fans of "House of Cards." As the show centers on a fictional version of the U.S. government, many believed that season 5 should tackle issues surrounding the current president of the country. One of the Indications that this might come true is pointed to the show's chosen announcement date which coincided with President Trump's inauguration day.
Additionally, "House of Cards" season 5 will kick off with the election season that fans speculated to depict the "unconventional" campaign of Pres. Trump. Following these talks, Kevin Spacey who plays the role of Frank Underwood previously said that any similarities the fans might notice between the events on the T.V. show and the real life are purely unintentional.
"We have written it, we have shot it and then just before the series gets dropped, something very close to what we have decided to develop happens to hit the headlines," Spacey told in an interview. "I know that people think we've ripped it, but it's really the other way around. We think somehow they're getting our stories," he continued.
