All 13 episodes of the season will be available for streaming by Netflix subscribers at once.
"In the second season, Francis [played by Spacey] and Claire Underwood [played by Wright] continue their ruthless rise to power as threats mount on all fronts," a synopsis said. "Zoe Barnes [played by Kate Mara,] an up-and-coming reporter and Francis' former paramour, is inching closer to the truth about his crimes. President Walker's [played by Michel Gill] billionaire confidante Raymond Tusk [played by Gerald McRaney] demands that Francis reciprocate political favors or face retribution. And Claire must confront the increasing glare of the spotlight as it eats away at her and Francis' once private existence. The Underwoods must overcome these dangers -- past and present -- to avoid losing everything, regardless of collateral damage they leave in their wake."
