Netflix has announced the start date for Season 5 of House of Cards, and it couldn’t have come at a better time — on the day Donald Trump is sworn into office. I’m sure it was no coincidence.
The teaser, which features a group of children pledging allegiance to the United States, has a very dark, ominous tone to it. The ominous tone is perhaps reflective of how many are feeling today, as Donald Trump officially becomes our 45th President.
It doesn’t take much of a stretch of the imagination to draw parallels between Trump and Underwood, and I’m sure Season 5 will be very reflective of the next 4 years.
