While the eyes of the country are on Washington, D.C. for the presidential inauguration, "House of Cards" announced the date for yet another transition of power: the premiere of Season 5.
With a post on Twitter, the Netflix drama revealed that the drama, which is filmed in the Baltimore area, will return May 30. The date was revealed at the end of a somber recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance -- and the ominous message "We make the terror."
The line is a recall of the quote from the season finale, when president Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey) said, "We don't submit to terror. We make the terror." And then his wife, Claire (Robin Wright), broke the fourth wall for the first time.
Melissa James Gibson and Frank Pugliese serve as co-showrunners on the fifth season of the Beltway drama, replacing Beau Willimon, who stepped down from the series after running it for the first four seasons.
