House of Cards: The new President Underwood has a July 4th message


House of Cards has a new President Underwood–and she has a 4th of July message for all of us.

House of Cards has had an interesting year and while its future was unknown and sketchy for a while, it all worked out in the end. America celebrated Independence Day yesterday, and the new President Underwood (played by Robin Wright) has a message for the world:

"“Happy Independence Day…to me.”"

The truth behind this statement resonates with the story for the upcoming, final season as well as the series of events that took place after sexual allegations against Kevin Spacey surfaced back in October of last year. The message also ends with #MyTurn, which is something Claire said in the final moments of last year’s finale.

When season 5 concluded, Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey) had resigned from his position as President, which his wife, Claire then took over. Things got complicated when the allegations against Spacey surfaced, and production was halted as a result. Not long after, he was let go from the series and production resumed once again with the focus on Robin Wright’s Claire.

The sixth and final season will be eight episodes long and has added some exciting cast members to the mix, including Greg Kinnear, Diane Lane, and Cody Fern. The final season will also bring back familiar faces such as Constance Zimmer, Michael Kelly, Campbell Scott, amongst a few more.
