- House of Cards – Season 4 – 13 eps
The new season of this political drama was available on Netflix on March 4 2016. Probably the best season so far, it deals with the election of 2016. It oozes Roman intrigue where you cannot trust anyone. And it is amazing in the amount of backstabbing, threats and twist and turns in the season. Probably the best thing I’ve seen this year.
It stars Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright. It also has Michael Kelly as Doug Stamper. Neve Campbell has entered the fray as LeAnn Harvey, with Joel Kinnaman as Republican candidate Will Conway. Kinnaman is Swedish.
This was also the last season for showrunner Beau Willimon. He wrote the first and last episodes. Other writers on the show include Melissa James Gibson, Laura Eason, John Mankiewicz and Frank Pagliese. Robin Wright and Tom Shankland were the main directors.
