Netflix has released the first, spoiler-filled teaser for House of Cards season 3, which is due to make its return to the streaming service for another round of political corruption and scandal on February 27, 2015.
The company made the announcement through the show’s official Twitter feed, which should be avoided at all costs if you aren’t up to date with the show. Spoilers abound.

As short and sweet as they come, the clip sees the return of Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright — who play Frank and Clare Underwood, respectively — who board Air Force One as the newly sworn-in President and First Lady. It’s a tantalizing tease, capping off Frank’s meteoric rise to power after his days spent as the White House’s majority whip at the beginning of season one.
But for Spacey’s character, this is only the beginning. Besides, Frank Underwood has been able to enact more than enough damage up to this point even if he wasn’t at the top of the proverbial food chain, so having him as the all-powerful POTUS is sure to throw up more than enough drama for viewers to sink their teeth into come February.
As for casting, we understand that Spacey and Wright will be joined once again by Nathan Darrow, Sakina Jaffery, Michael Gill and Gone Girl‘s Kim Dickens in an as-yet-unknown role.
House of Cards season 3 will bring back Washington’s most ruthless predator for another 13-episode stint on February 27, 2015.
