Though Netflix’s House of Cards was recently rocked by allegations necessitating the eventual firing of its male costar (Kevin, who?), I think we already knew who was going to be running the show next season.
In my mind, it was always Claire who’d eventually end up on top, and I look forward to her final leap over Frank’s (presumably) dead body.
The series’ upcoming sixth season just added two phenomenal, Academy Award nominated actors,
and the only information released about who Diane Lane and Greg Kinnear will play is that their characters will be siblings.
That seems like a missed opportunity, but either way — lovers, or brother and sister (hopefully not both, *coughCerseixJaimecough*) — I’m thrilled with their casting.
House of Cards, Season 6 will consist of eight episodes, and Robin Wright. Michael Kelly, Jayne Atkinson, Patricia Clarkson, Constance Zimmer, Derek Cecil, Campbell Scott and Boris McGive will all return.
